Huawei unveils world’s first G.fast over Coax

Huawei has unveiled the world’s first G.fast over Coax multi-user access prototype, capable of providing an ultrafast broadband access rate of 1 Gbps over coaxial cables.

With this prototype, Huawei realizes G.fast ultrafast broadband via multi-medium and multi-user access. The G.fast over Coax multi-user access technology is compatible with cable TV signals on existing coaxial networks, which serve as a crucial access medium for home networks.

By flexibly allocating unoccupied frequency bands (1 GHz maximally) for G.fast access, the technology provides a 1 Gbps downstream shared bandwidth to serve up to 32 users over coaxial cables. With this technology, coaxial network users are able to experience superfast broadband speeds.

As a cutting-edge access technology, G.fast is mainly applied to short-distance twisted pairs to deliver Gigabit access. Huawei has conducted a G.fast over Copper trial with a leading European telecom operator, providing 1 Gbps access via existing copper lines.

In addition, Huawei incorporates the G.fast technology into its Fiber to the Door (FTTD) solution, which takes fiber to the door and then delivers ultrafast broadband access via existing access media, making this solution the best answer to FTTH problems.

“Huawei continuously invests in technological innovations that address the needs of operators and solve their problems in network rollouts,” said You Yiyong, president of Huawei’s access network product line.
