Genesis Technical to assist mobile operators to lower broadband cost than FTTH or FTTP networks

Telecom Lead America: Genesis Technical Systems is set to assist mobile operators to offer broadband at a fraction of the cost of fiber to the home (FTTH) or fiber to the premise (FTTP) networks.

The company promises that its DSL Rings, a technology to deliver 400 Mb/s over existing copper telecommunications infrastructures, will be delivering more than enough capacity to bring low cost triple play and quad play offers to both urban and rural areas.

“DSL Rings facilitates Telco customer acquisition, win-back and retention by offering better, faster services; more bandwidth; and lower unit cost (per Mb/s) than current methods of delivering broadband services over copper,” said Stephen Cooke, president & CTO, Genesis Technical Systems.

Speed matters for broadband users. Close to half of total fixed broadband customers during the second quarter 2012 has opted for 10 Mbps and above.

For instance, in Europe alone, there are over 40 million people who currently do not have access to a basic 2 Mb/s service.

According to the company, DSL Rings supports VoIP, Wi-Fi, WiMax, M2M, CCTV and CATV, automated meter reading, mobile network offload, femtocells, picocells, HD IPTV, video conferencing, video streaming and video on demand.

DSL Rings can be deployed in rural and urban situations with the potential for return on investment typically within 24 months following low cost, rapid deployment.

It is an alternative for FTTH or FTTP. DSL Rings can provide backhaul for femtocells to off-load congested mobile networks.

“We are very excited to be launching DSL Rings at Broadband World Forum.  DSL Rings is about enabling affordable Superfast Broadband for everyone, whether they live in rural communities or inner cities,” Garry Kelman, CEO, Genesis Technical Systems.

Genesis is scheduling DSL Rings field trials and anticipates that the technology will be commercially available in the second quarter of 2013.

Recently, ABI Research said the fixed broadband business generated service revenue of $47.7 billion. The significant growth is despite a surge in mobile broadband adoption globally.
