Genesis backhaul includes Point-to-Point (P2P) and Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) solutions. The P2MP backhaul solution utilizes Genesis’ Access Service Manager (ASM), Digital Broadband Extender (DBE) and Digital Broadband Aggregator (DBA). Whether your backhaul networks are servicing mobile base stations, utility huts, transport networks or network equipment, Genesis offers several options for increasing the bandwidth up to 1 Gb/s.
For the most rural locations where cell sites could be located 20kft/6km or more from the nearest CO/Exchange, Genesis uses a combination of unique technologies to further extend reach. This is done using the DBE in conjunction with the DBA.
The Genesis DBE is an xDSL regenerator platform that is located mid-span between the CO and CPE modems. Comprising multiple pairs of back-to-back CO/CPE modem chipsets, the DBE terminates each xDSL line and re-launches a new, clean signal towards the far end, effectively reducing the loop length and thus boosting the available bandwidth. Several DBEs may be used in conjunction to boost up to 24 pairs. Very long spans may utilize two or more DBEs to further improve bandwidth.
In addition to regeneration, the DBE employs Genesis aggregation technology to combine the bandwidth of multiple pairs between each location. This provides the benefits of statistical multiplexing as well as significantly reducing the impact of a single bad pair on a single user. Each DBE can deliver local bandwidth via Ethernet for a Wi-Fi access point or small cell.
The diagram below illustrates Genesis’ P2MP solution deployed as the backhaul to an existing T1/E1 fed DSLAM. In this instance the increased bandwidth enables the DSLAM to deliver more than 100 Mb/s.
