BIRMINGHAM, U.K. -- Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe Ltd, the leading supplier of high performance telecommunications solutions, is to stage the world launch of its latest MSAN technology developments at the Broadband World Forum Europe event (Venice, September 20 - 23), exhibiting on Stand No. 1110. Fujitsu is showing its GeoStream Access Gateway Hub 1000, the company's next-generation Multi-Service Access Node (MSAN), which is capable of supporting thousands of broadband users on a single ATM/Ethernet network interface. Currently the world's most advanced DSL platform, GeoStream Access Gateway Hub 1000 is designed to provide operators with the optimum cost-effective technology on which to build 21st century networks.

Fujitsu's new MSAN will be demonstrated alongside the comprehensive line-up of copper and fibre access solutions within the GeoStream Access Gateway portfolio, highlighting the inherent flexibility of the product concept. Fujitsu is placing a major focus on multi-service access convergence for the provision of future services, highlighting in particular:

  • Bandwidth provisioning in a managed access solution

  • Video streaming over GeoStream Access Gateway

  • Voice over IP services, based on the broadband voice service deployed by Fujitsu and MetaSwitch for BT in the United Kingdom

  • Video on Demand, including integration with third party middleware

  • Migration of baseband PSTN services onto the platform

  • Aggregation of traffic for cost effective backhaul



Fujitsu's modular, multi-service GeoStream Access Gateway Hub 1000 combines industry-leading operational flexibility and scalability, with multiple cost-saving attributes - driving down the cost per line to the absolute minimum. Simon Rees, DSL Director at Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe, explained the company's rationale: "The introduction of our GeoStream Access Gateway Hub 1000 represents an important evolutionary step in our approach to multi-service access. It extends the capabilities of our GeoStream Access Gateway solution by several orders of magnitude, reinforcing our philosophy of offering a single platform that interfaces to the widest range of access technologies, and provides aggregation for IP, Ethernet, ATM, TDM and POTS services, via copper, direct fibre, and PON. The sheer scalability of the Hub 1000 will ensure the longest operational lifespan, and underlines its position as the optimum platform for evolving PSTN services to the 21st century network. Our overriding intention is to make it as easy andcost-effective as possible for operators to migrate services from legacy networks to the new core. Our introduction of Hub 1000 brings genuinely new levels of flexibility, scalability and economy into the marketplace."
