mBond Point to Point

mBond P2P provides end-to-end, exchange (or cabinet) to customer premise configuration for when there is no DSLAM installed. mBond P2P provides mobile and fixed telecommunications operators (Telcos) with a unique opportunity to dramatically enhance their legacy network capacity performance.

mBond P2P delivers point-to-point broadband in excess of 1 Gb/s. 

mBond P2P is a unique bonding solution that provides unmatched value for fixed and mobile backhaul networks. mBond is an extremely cost effective alternative to fibre and microwave that enables telecommunications operators to realise a far quicker and improved return on investment.

Legacy network capacity limitations of E1 and T1 do not offer carriers the opportunity to deploy high speed broadband and other value added services without the considerable expense of running fibre, which adversely impacts the economics.

mBond P2P delivers performance improvements – using the existing network – that increase throughput and revenue per customer premise, and allow operators to materially improve QoS and income potential.

In recent Telco field trials mBond P2P delivered bandwidth of 157 Mb/s at 1450 metres with 12‐pairs and 77 Mb/s at 1300 metres with 4‐pairs. Tests were run with a number of different operators and service providers for both mobile and fixed networks. Similar results were also achieved at Genesis’s test facility in Europe.

  • Further Information
    • mBond P2P delivers service enhancing backhaul for macrocells and access broadband for enterprises, campuses and multi-dwelling units, in areas where it is uneconomical or impractical to deploy Fibre to the Premise.
    • Vendor agnostic on DSLAM/MSAN
    • Self-contained - mBond P2P provides end-to-end, exchange (or cabinet) to customer premise configuration
    • Pre-provisioned - Pre-set service profiles with auto-configuration on installation to ensure quick and easy deployment
    • Small footprint - 1U rack mounted form-factor takes up minimal space in the cabinet/exchange and at the customer premise
    • A long term strategic solution - Traditionally operators have had three choices for backhaul: standard copper, microwave or fibre. Each has strengths and weaknesses – but there are still many scenarios in which none is appropriate. mBond P2P provides a critical fourth way, ideal for peri‐urban, suburban and rural settings where delivering an exceptional customer experience is no less important, but where traffic volumes do not justify major backhaul investment. The widest possible use of copper helps operators keep CAPEX and OPEX to a minimum.
