World’s First 16-Port G.fast Demonstration Shown by Sckipio at Broadband World Forum


AMSTERDAM, Oct 21, 2014 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Sckipio Technologies today demonstrated the first commercial G.fast chipset connecting at rates of up to 700Mbps on 16 ports simultaneously at the Broadband World Forum. The demonstration shows the real-world potential of G.fast for delivering ultra broadband over existing copper wiring.

The demonstration consisted of Sckipio’s 16-port DP3016-EVM DPU with built-in vectoring communicating high-speed G.fast across a 50 meter binder to 16 CPE devices. This is the first public demonstration of a 16-port G.fast solution. The demo can be seen at Stand E60 within the Broadband Forum Interoperability Pavilion.
