InCoax D2501 is developed for small MDU’s with outdoor access to the coax networks, which is very common in Garden style MDUs in the US. The fiber/LAN operator has several customers lined-up with MDUs with a perfect fit to this use case. The operator will start the lab tests of the D2501 in early November.
The fiber/LAN operator’s tests are to verify D2501 functionality in the use case, and to secure performance in this potentially more demanding environment.
“It is with great satisfaction we now can commence the function lab tests with the Fiber/LAN operator. We have since the well noticed launch had many inquiries, that we meet with product introductions at primarily existing customers during the fall,” says InCoax Head of Marketing, Sales and Product Management Helge Tiainen. “Generation and technology shifts are very demanding for operators from both an organizational, hardware and software implementation perspective, which should not be underestimated, but we look forward with great confidence to regular deliveries during first half of 2022.”
About InCoax D2501
InCoax D2501 enables symmetrical Gigabit or Multi-Gigabit broadband services to small and mid-sized MDUs. It cost-effectively uses the existing in-house coax cable infrastructure, positioning it as the time-saving alternative to pulling new cables, as well as helping to meet sustainability targets. This subsequently increases property reach and grows the addressable market size for operators.
The modems can be self-installed by tenants, saving time and money when installing and launching services. It can also be rolled-out in stages which shortens time for revenue, lowers initial CAPEX and contributes to faster overall Return on investment (ROI) for operators. The system offers symmetrical broadband services with low latency, and a fiber-like experience that outperforms any legacy technology such as G.fast to match the increasing market demand for seamless streaming, gaming and working from home.
InCoax D2501 DPU (Distribution Point Unit) extends the northbound backbone GPON, XG-PON, XGS-PON or Active Ethernet fiber network. D2501 is a Broadband Forum TR-301/TR-419 based DPU for 8, 16 or 31 modems making it the versatile choice for small and mid-sized MDU deployments. The broadband connection point (antenna outlet) is located at the heart of the apartment (unit) for easy Smart TV and IP-TV services access, rendering additional internal wiring unnecessary.
The water-resistant IP-67 casing allows for indoor or outdoor installation in any FTTep (Fiber To The extension point) location. The common Reverse Power Feed option is available when local power is not present at the mounting location. Zero Touch Provisioning of system set-up allows for fast and easy installation of systems and effective use of human resources that saves time and money. It is managed through TR-069, NETCONF/YANG and SNMP protocols for incorporation to operators’ existing management and provisioning systems, making it the perfect complement to fiber roll-out strategies in North America and Europe.
