Flexible access system for high speed broadband networks

MileGate is a modern IP-MSAN (Multi-Service Access Node) that helps you to expand your network so that it’s fit for the future, no matter if it's FTTH, FTTB or FTTC.

The access platform is ideal when developing optical-fibre-based FTTH networks in Ethernet point-to-point topologies. Up to 480 customers per system benefit from gigabit-range bandwidths.

With the aid of VDSL2 vectoring, FTTC networks deliver high bandwidths without the need to lay optical fibre to each connection. MileGate supports numerous VDSL2 vectoring profiles including profile 35b, enabling data rates of up to 300 Mbps.

Thanks to its robust design, MileGate is perfect when deployed in tough ambient conditions without compromising reliability.

MileGate was developed for Next-Generation networks, but also supports traditional network technologies. It enables seamless migration of services and makes them available via copper and optical fibre.
