FTTB: Connecting multi-dwelling buildings efficiently with almost 2 Gbps per subscriber

It’s often difficult and costly to bridge the last few metres in multi-dwelling buildings with optical fibre when bringing high-speed connections to customers. What’s more ONT (Optical Network Termination) can’t usually be installed by end customers themselves but require the network operator’s engineers.

The connection of multi-dwelling buildings with optical fibre (FTTB – Fibre-To-The-Building) and G.fast via copper wire pairs on the final metres to the end customer’s premise is an ideal solution regarding data rates. It combines the advantages of optical fibre with the existing copper-based access technology.

Distribution Point Units (DPU) MileGate 2012 and MileGate 2112 provide almost 1 Gbps, MileGate 2042 up to even 2 Gbps (combined upstream/downstream totals).

That is fibre-like speed at copper access deployment conditions.
