MUNICH and NEUBIBERG, Germany, Dec. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lantiq, a leading supplier of chips and software for broadband access and home networking, has developed a new computer modeling and simulation approach to speed development of broadband networking technology.
In a paper scheduled for presentation today at the IEEE Globecom Conference, Lantiq researcher Rainer Strobel will describe a comprehensive approach to creating computer models of the complex, heterogeneous copper wire cable runs typically found in broadband access distribution systems. The modeling and simulation technique, based on analysis of actual cable runs operated by a major telecom carrier, provides more accurate results more quickly than the commonly used modeling technology developed in the 1990s.
"As broadband access advances to development of hybrid fiber-copper networks such as Fiber-to-the-Distribution Point (FTTdp) and G.Fast, accurate computer modeling becomes an even more critical tool than in lower speed access networks," said Craig Garen, Lantiq Senior Vice President of Global R&D. "The groundbreaking approach defined in this research promises to speed both chip development and ultimately the successful large-scale implementation of access networks operating at speeds surpassing hundreds of megabits per second."
The paper, "Wideband Modeling of Twisted-Pair Cables for MIMO Applications," is being presented in the session on xDSL and Hybrid Access Networks (SA-ANS2) at IEEE Globecom 2014 in Atlanta, GA (USA), on December 11, 2013. Named authors are Rainer Strobel of Lantiq, Reinhard Stolle of Hochschule Augsburg, and Wolfgang Utschick of Technische Universitat Munchen.
The paper is available on the Lantiq web site.
