DSL Rings (DSLR) delivers fast, service-enhancing broadband over existing carrier networks, at a fraction of the cost of Fiber to the Home (FTTH), whilst delivering more than enough capacity to bring triple play offers to both urban and rural areas. DSLR is targeted at areas with limited backhaul resources and pockets of closely-knit households/businesses; for example: small towns, urban, suburban & rural hamlets, etc.
Traditionally networks share resources for the betterment of all connected to them, typically to the DP/pedestal. DSLR moves the point at which that sharing begins to the front door.
Genesis’ DSL Rings is a local access network architecture. The Genesis Convergence Node (CN), which resides at the pedestal/DP, aggregates pairs to obtain maximum bandwidth from the Central Office (CO) or fiber-fed node to the pedestal/DP. The Convergence Node (CN), which is environmentally hardened and line powered from the CO (or Node/Cabinet location), terminates the aggregated signals and acts as the gateway node for the subscriber ‘collector’ ring.
The subscriber ‘collector’ ring is based on creating a logical ring architecture serving the premises connected to the pedestal/DP, through a Home Access Node (HAN). This enables broadband sharing from the CN to all premises where those subscribers are connected to the service. Not all premises connected to the pedestal/DP need to be included in the ‘collector’ ring.
