Patton's EFM Bonding and VDSL2 DSLAMs Enable High-Speed Services over Existing Copper Plant
GAITHERSBURG, Md. --(Business Wire)--
Electronics announced today the ForeFront™
3310P G.SHDSL.bis EFM IP DSLAM and ForeFront™
3210P VDSL2 DSLAM are fully released and generally available.
Designed for service-provider, campus, and MTU/MDU networks, Patton's (News - Alert)
new DSLAMs exploit existing copper cabling to deliver
high-speed-symmetrical or asymmetrical-network services.
Patton's innovative DSLAM solutions avoid the disruption, delay, and
expense of installing new CAT5 or fiber-optic cable by leveraging common
voice-grade copper cabling infrastructure already in place.
The compact, 19-inch, rack-mountable chassis are ideally suited for
campus environments as well as small-to-medium carrier-providers.
Patton's new ForeFront DSLAM solutions allow carrier-providers,
corporations, non-profits, eduational institutions, government
agencies, ski resorts, theme parks, and other campus environments to
meet the ever-increasing bandwidth demands of today's users in order to
support premium voice and streaming media applications.
"There's a lot to love about the legacy copper physical plant," said
Johnnie Grant, Product Manager. "Those copper wires are time-tested and
reliable-not to mention paid for.
Our EFM and VDSL2 DSLAM solutions make copper infrastructure a fully
viable medium for delivering new-generation network services."
Ideal for high-speed service extending beyond 5,000 feet,
EFM DSLAM delivers symmetrical 5.7 Mbps per wire-pair
over distances up to 1.6 miles.
Employing advanced 2BASE-TL
technology, the 24-port FF3310P EFM DSLAM bonds up to four twisted
pairs into a single channel for up to 22.8 Mbps per
connection-sufficient IP-bandwidth for premium voice, video, and data.
For ultra-fast connections over shorter distances,
VDSL2 DSLAM offers symmetrical per-channel data rates up to
100 Mbps within 1000 feet/300 meters-or asymmetrical 50/2 Mbps for
long-range connections (4,600 feet/1,400 meters).
with ITU-T G.993.2, the 24-port FF3210P is an ideal choice for
carriers, ISPs, and system integrators delivering triple-play services
over existing copper wiring.
ForeFront equipment, like all Patton products, comes with Patton's Gold-Standard
Free Support at no additional charge. Patton's Platinum
Premium 24/7 Support is also available.
Last week, Patton announced the CopperLink
