UNH-IOL to Host G.fast Interoperability Demo

The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) will host a multi-vendor G.fast interoperability demo in the Broadband Forum Interoperability Pavilion at next week's Broadband World Forum (BBWF) in London.

The demo showcases G.fast interoperability between products from six companies based on chipsets from three different providers. Additionally, the UNH-IOL will be showing some live testing during the demo, based upon the forthcoming G.fast Certification Program.

Companies taking part in UNH-IOL’s demo are Calix, Digital Lightwave, Huawei, Metanoia Communications, Technicolor, and Telebyte.

“Proving cross-chipset interoperability enables G.fast technology to become an even more powerful tool for service providers to achieve higher speeds to the subscriber over short distances,” said Tom Starr, Broadband Forum President. “This interoperability ultimately ‘future proofs’ the network, so that new devices can effortlessly work with already deployed devices, saving time and money.”
