HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- ADTRAN, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced an industry first that will eliminate several key barriers service providers face when expanding broadband service deployments. Frequency Division Vectoring (FDV) enhances the capabilities of both G.fast and VDSL2 vectoring by enabling them to better coexist by working in tandem across a single subscriber line in the service provider’s network. This new patent-pending technology enables service providers to take immediate advantage of the maximum G.fast performance without the expense of transitioning an entire subscriber base from VDSL2 to G.fast technology. Preserving investments in Fiber-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) infrastructure, FDV doubles data rates and increases the reach of intermediate-rate services – between 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps – allowing the delivery of cost-effective premium broadband to 80% more subscribers.

“While G.fast and VDSL2 have always been seen as complementary technologies, the limitations of G.fast have been exposed when forced to operate in a VDSL2-compatible mode at higher rates,” said Jeff Heynen, principal analyst, broadband access and pay TV, Infonetics. “As service providers look to build out their G.fast adoption strategies, ADTRAN’s FDV technology has a key performance impact by allowing G.fast and vectored VDSL2 technologies to work in concert to boost performance. Service providers can now maximize a broader market opportunity without wasting unused bandwidth in their networks or prematurely forcing subscribers served by 100Mbps VDSL2 to move to G.fast.”

FDV expands the addressable market for G.fast by broadening its applicability from Fiber-to-the-Building (FTTB) and Fiber-to-the-distribution points (FTTdp) out to existing street cabinet sites. This allows service providers to fortify recent cabinet investments while mitigating the operational challenges that currently exist regarding providing power to new FTTdp deployments. FDV strengthens the value proposition of G.fast by substantially improving deployment economics and enabling faster service time to market for game-changing broadband services rates.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
