Ikanos Enables NG Networks Achieve 100 Mbps plus Performance over Standard Copper

Ikanos Communications has said that it’s enabling today’s next generation networks to achieve greater than 100 Mbps performance over standard copper.

The company’s NodeScale Vectoring technology is fully G.Vector compliant. Company officials said that leveraging it, service providers can deliver advanced high-speed multimedia services through traditional copper networks at one-tenth the cost of fiber to the home.

The crosstalk that occurs on copper wire across an entire node – up to 384 ports – is virtually eliminated by NodeScale Vectoring. Moreover, since it’s able to identify and cancel crosstalk interference, independent of binder, cable or chassis, NodeScale Vectoring increases robustness and reliability. Company officials said that this results in “dramatically” increased broadband throughput speeds.

Ikanos (News - Alert) Communications is a provider of advanced broadband semiconductor and software products for the digital home. The company’s broadband DSL, communications processors and other offerings power access infrastructure and customer premises equipment for many of the world’s prominent network equipment manufacturers and telecommunications provider.

This year in April, the company announced that it met its revenue forecast, effectively managed operating expenses, and increased its cash position. Ikanos’ next-generation products are winning customers and gaining recognition in the market, according to company officials.

Earlier in March, AVM, a German manufacturer of broadband network equipment, selected Ikanos’ Fusiv Vx180 communications processor for integration into its most advanced family of multimedia home gateways.

Recently, the company announced that NodeScale Vectoring DSL access technology also received the IP&TV Industry Award for Best Enabling Silicon, IP or Component Technologies for IPTV (News - Alert) Award.
