DSL Rings is designed and developed to comply with a Telco’s existing copper line infrastructure. It is very easy to deploy since it doesn’t require new technical skills, right-of-way, or road works. Affordable and highly profitable for Telcos, DSL Rings avoids the huge up-front costs of providing fibre infrastructure to people's homes, and the years necessary to realise a return on investment. With DSL Rings return on investment is typically realised within 24 months via a ‘pay as you grow’ deployment model which is supported with a low cost, single day installation.
To tackle the disparity between consumer demand and economics, Telcos frequently opt for partial fibre deployments, often referred to as ‘Fibre to the Node’ (FTTN).
VDSL2 (very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line – version 2) technology has increased the bandwidth-carrying capability of the wires significantly but, as with all DSL-based technologies, bandwidth deteriorates rapidly as distance from the DSLAM (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer) increases.
The challenge with FTTN deployments is that the performance realised by the customer is dependent on the distance between the cabinet and the home. The greater the distance the lower the bandwidth.
Genesis has designed a way to achieve the rates described in the new FCC definition of broadband reach the home, even when they are a considerable distance from the Node, through its DSL Rings technology. DSL Rings takes high-speed broadband from the Node over copper to the home, frequently referred to as the ‘last mile’. DSL Rings introduces the first major change to telephone access network architecture since the first Central Offices were installed over 100 years ago.
Fixed wireless-based network upgrades, whilst being relatively inexpensive compared to fibre, often require spectrum licensing, have physical security challenges, and peak bandwidth difficulties. They are also subject to disruption, location and reception issues, and they lower the barrier to market entry as competing carriers can deploy such solutions almost as easily as incumbents.
Compared to other superfast broadband technologies DSL Rings is affordable, viable in rural locations, quick to deploy and has low environmental impact.
