Access network provider, ADTRAN announced that its G.fast trials with BT in HuntingdonCambridgeshire, using its ADTRAN 500G Series fiber-to-the-distribution-point (FTTdp) solutions are reaching over two thousand premises. 

G.fast, as a viable Gigabit broadband technology, is allowing carriers to deliver up to five times the broadband speed currently offered by UK cable providers. ADTRAN said that it is fulfilling demand from more than 60 service providers using their solution, across six continents.

Mike Galvin, BT managing director of service, strategy & operations
Rather than relying on fiber for the entire network, G.fast solutions such as ADTRAN’s utilize existing copper assets for the last step of the journey. 

Dr. Eduard Scheiterer, senior vice president, research and development, ADTRAN
Our continued investment in G.fast includes end-user service activation through reverse powering capabilities, which we brought to market. We are also working with standards bodies like the Broadband Forum to develop open APIs and interfaces allowing simplified, rapid deployment into any broadband network, regardless of FTTx vendor or OSS incumbency.
