Israel's Bezeq Trials Adtran's G.fast

Bezeq, Israel's incumbent operator, has undertaken field trials of ADTRAN's range of G.fast FTTx solutions.

The tests, in one of Israel’s largest cities, involves a variety of copper loop lengths and Internet speeds. Specifically, Bezeq is currently trialling the 8-port and 16-port ADTRAN distribution point units (DPUs), which are both physical layer and chipset agnostic, ensuring rapid service provisioning and activation.

“Bezeq is committed to delivering infrastructure for a Gigabit society, and it’s clear how G.fast will play a vital role in accomplishing this for many areas throughout Israel, alongside traditional FTTP approaches where required,” said Dr. Eduard Scheiterer, senior vice president, research and development, ADTRAN. “The path to delivering transformative broadband is made even more compelling as Fiber-to-the-Cabinet deployment models are supported with an increase in G.fast equipment port density and enhanced G.fast chipset performance, permitting substantial asset re-use and accelerating the pace of rollout.”

“Our trials have proven G.fast to be both an innovative and a pragmatic broadband technology that creates new possibilities thanks to its flexible deployment capabilities. We are pleased that ADTRAN has enabled us to accelerate the delivery of new transformative Gigabit broadband services,” said Bezeq CTIO, Yaki Zano. “Bezeq’s and ADTRAN’s continued strategic and collaborative partnership is cementing both companies’ commitment to delivering access solutions and technology that best serve customers in Israel.”
