BRUSSELS, April 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Gigabit Access -- Greenlee Textron Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, today announced the release of its G.Fast solution under the Greenlee Communications brand, which will be on display at the 2017 Gigabit Access Conference & Exhibition; April 4th-5th, Brussels, Belgium.
With gigabit becoming the gold standard in broadband, service providers are looking at the many options to deliver on that promise alongside the many challenges with each approach. Fiber to the Home has got a lot of press but is breaking the bank in terms of cost. Telco's are seeking solutions that can maximize their existing copper infrastructure while delivering on the Ultra-fast speed promise. In response to the need, Greenlee has just released the very latest Ultra-Fast technology in G.Fast to its leading Sidekick®Plus product line.
"The best part about this technology is that it works over regular phone lines and coaxial cables. Which means it can be deployed in most cities without having to throw huge amounts of cash at new infrastructure, simply using the copper that's already available to the service providers," commented Mark Barmettler, Vice President & GM for Greenlee Communications. "Service providers' strategy to deploy a copper technology that feels like a pure fiber optic connection to the user is delivering on the Ultra-Fast promise without the large expense of Fiber all the way. The Sidekick Plus- is a must for service providers rolling out this ultra-fast G.Fast broadband service to subscribers."
"The Sidekick Plus test set provides technicians with an intuitive handheld solution with a broad copper fault finding capability as well as the ability to install, turn up and maintain G.Fast, VDSL2, and ADSL2+ deployments all within a single test set, no modules needed." In addition to supporting G.Fast, the Sidekick Plus has also added crosstalk TDR and even faster time to results as well as extending the battery life of these critical solutions.
