Genesis Technical Systems achieves major milestone with mBond

Genesis Technical Systems announced a major milestone as its copper bonding solution mBond delivered significant increase in bandwidth in a trial on the live network with UK-based enterprise broadband service provider WarwickNet.

The six month trial saw mBond dramatically enhance upload and download speeds for the WarwickNet customer, the company said.

The mBond technology is used to enhance the existing network and deliver higher bandwidth enabling the trial customer to boost their productivity, saving them time and money, the company said.


The technology enables fixed and mobile network operators to increase their copper bandwidth by upto a factor of ten.

The advantage of this technology is that it is more cost effective than fibre and microwave,  so operators can realize a far quicker and improved return on their investment.

Providing enterprise broadband is a new market application for mBond, which was initially developed to deliver macrocell backhaul for mobile operators.

SMT Developments, which tested mBond technology, said they have achieved download speeds of 94 Mb/s and upload speeds of 84 Mb/s with WarwickNet and Genesis’s mBond installed in the cabinet and customer premise.

Prior to this, SMT Developments was achieving download speeds of between 0.5 Mb/s and 6 Mb/s on a single pair.

The current service is capped at 100 Mb/s but higher downstream bandwidths could be achieved with no cap in place, SMT said.

Ben King, CEO, WarwickNet, said, “We are very pleased with the results that we have achieved with mBond from Genesis. It will allow us to offer higher bandwidth services to our customers using the infrastructure that we already have in place and we look forward to developing this further in the future.”

mBond has been tested globally with a variety of different operators and service providers for both mobile and fixed networks. Similar results were also demonstrated in Asia Pacific lab trials, showing continued success for the solution and its capabilities.
