mBond Flex is the first telecoms scalable solution providing fast, service enhancing broadband over existing networks using vendor agnostic xDSL bonding over VDSL2 and ADSL2+. mBond Flex delivers an immediately deployable solution with low operational barriers to deployment and a fast return on investment.
An affordable, flexible solution
Over the last ten years carriers globally have embarked on multiple programs to increase broadband access speeds to their customers. In many cases these increased speeds have been delivered by fibre optic networks, either directly to the premise or to a local hub where local services are then delivered either by more fibre, radio or the existing copper infrastructure. However, in many cases pushing fibre out to the extremities of a carrier’s network can be extremely expensive and in some cases impossible. mBond Flex has been created to work with the customer’s existing fibre/copper networks to deliver incremental bandwidth today, at a small fraction of the cost of extending the fibre network.
mBond Flex is an extensible, vendor agnostic way of leveraging existing copper to bond xDSL links and use existing copper to meet the fast-broadband challenge. Multiple mBond Flex CE devices are supported, to the limit of the Server throughput capacity, with flexible contention ratios from 1:1 to 20:1.
mBond Flex delivers cost effective and immediate fast-broadband to business customers out of reach of fibre or where over-the air solutions are unviable. mBond Flex supports business scale deployment for enterpises, multi-dwelling devices, mobile data backhaul and small cell architectures.
mBond Flex uses an industry standard Intel server at the Exchange or Head End to support multiple mBond Flex CE devices, which have have both CLI and WebUI management with SNMPv2 monitoring. The mBond Flex interface is built on ConfD, has an available Yang model and is ready for future NetConf deployments.
