GAITHERSBURG, Md.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Patton Electronics announced today the ForeFront™ 3310P G.SHDSL.bis EFM IP DSLAM and ForeFront™ 3210P VDSL2 DSLAM are fully released and generally available.
“There’s a lot to love about the legacy copper physical plant”
Designed for service-provider, campus, and MTU/MDU networks, Patton’s 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, educational 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).
Compliant 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.
Last week, Patton announced the CopperLink 2300 line-bonding managed Ethernet-over-copper extender series.
