Alcatel-Lucent brings gateway for 750 Mbps speed

Alcatel-Lucent said its new device — residential gateway — for residential and business use will enable telecom operators to speed up broadband access deployment.

The plug-and-play residential gateway will remove the need for telecom operators to enter premises of customer to install.

Though telecoms are utilizing fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and technologies to bring gigabit broadband speeds to premises, they face challenges in maintaining those speeds inside a building due to legacy home networks, poor Wi-Fi speeds and reliability issues.

Alcatel-Lucent’s new home networking device offers more than 750megabits-per-second of broadband speed over infrastructure into their home – almost 30 times the global average which hovers around 27Mbps.

The residential gateway delivers concurrent dual-band Wi-Fi to provide greater signal strength and 1Gbps data speeds, eliminating the need to run fiber into the home.

Alcatel-Lucent said the residential gateway also provides a more efficient way to power distribution point units for delivering on the standard.

Federico Guillen, president of Alcatel-Lucent’s Fixed Access Business Line, said: “Combining Wi-Fi and technology, operators can deliver fiber-like speeds into the home without ever having to drill a hole or run wires.”
