KEYMILE: Broadband World Forum 2012


This year’s Broadband World Forum will take place in Amsterdam from 16 to 18 October 2012. At the Forum, KEYMILE will be presenting new solutions for fibre optic connections in a diverse range of applications. One of the innovations includes the MileGate 2880 GPON solution. This product allows KEYMILE to expand its portfolio to include a system for broadband access via passive optical networks. The MileGate 2200 is also a new product with a 2 HU subrack for access in areas with few subscribers.

At the Broadband World Forum 2012 KEYMILE, a leading technology supplier of communications solutions for access and transmission systems, will be at the RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre on stand E28. The company will be focusing on the multi-service access platform MileGate, designed for flexible FTTx broadband expansion. The platform provides all broadband technologies, ranging from ADSL2plus to VDSL2 with vectoring, to active optical GbE connections for economical migration of FTTC to FTTH. MileGate has a hybrid backplane with bandwidth of 10 GbE per slot. As a result, it can offer highly flexible, optical and electrical Ethernet interfaces with high port densities, as well as traditional services like analogue telephony, synchronous and asynchronous TDM connections.

At the Broadband World Forum, KEYMILE will be presenting its new GPON solution for customers who have chosen PON networks for their FTTH network architecture. MileGate 2880 is a new product in the portfolio that provides broadband access, particularly in conurbations such as those in Asia for example. With a splitting factor of 1:64, the 8 HU Subrack can supply up to 4096 subscribers. There is also a 4 HU subrack MileGate 2820 solution for smaller installations. Therefore, in addition to the MileGate solution for point-to-point connections, there is also a system for passive optical networks.

MileGate 2200 is also a premiere: the system is a 2 HU subrack for economical access in areas with few subscribers. In MileGate 2200 all the DSL and Ethernet boards can be used that are also in the 2510 and 2310 MileGates. Consequently, MileGate 2200 is a complete mini DSLAM that can be flexibly adapted to meet local needs. Up to 144 customers can for example be connected with VDSL2 via one MileGate 2200 in the feeder distribution interface. ADSL2plus and optical Ethernet are also available. Therefore, modern services like VoIP, broadband Internet, Video-on-Demand and TV via DSL can also be delivered in areas with low numbers of subscribers. Each subscriber has up to 100 Mbps with VDSL2 with vectoring via copper wire and up to 1000 Mbps via fibre optics for broadband access.
