For the most rural locations where customer premises could be located 20kft/6km or more from the nearest CO/Exchange, Genesis uses a combination of unique technologies to extend reach. This is done using the Genesis Digital Broadband Extender (DBE).
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 cascade to maintain full broadband capacity across 24 pairs.
The Genesis Wireless Backhaul Solution combines DSL aggregation and reach extension technologies to increase the bandwidth available in such suburban and rural areas where there are no economically viable solutions to improve service. DSL Long Reach (DLR) uses existing xDSL infrastructure and can be delivered at less than a twentieth of the cost of a new fiber build, whilst still enabling revenues from high bandwidth services.
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.
