Genesis Technical Systems achieves Gold Standard
Genesis Technical Systems has become one of only nine global manufacturers to successfully pass BT’s MCT compliance, achieving SIN 498 approval.
Genesis Technical Systems today announced its DSL Broadband Aggregator (DBA) technology for increased backhaul performance has passed British Telecom’s (BT) Modem Conformance Testing (MCT) and achieved SIN 498 – widely seen as a ‘Gold Standard’ in the industry. Genesis is one of only nine global manufacturers to have achieved MCT compliance after undergoing extensive testing to check DBA meets the standard and complies with BT’s requirements.
DBA – the new generation of bonding solution that addresses the inherent issues associated with G.Bond and EFM bonding – delivers cost effective and immediate, fast broadband to customers out of reach of fiber or where over-the-air solutions are unviable. It supports carrier scale deployment for enterprises, multi-dwelling units, mobile data backhaul, T1/E1 replacement and small cell architectures. DBA is also highly tolerant of individual line pair performance and failures, has greater configuration flexibility with point to multipoint bonding capability, is scalable and DSLAM agnostic.
Stephen Cooke, Genesis Founder and CTO, said: “This is a massive achievement for Genesis and a testament to the high-quality products we produce and the professional standards we adhere to. This certification also verifies the backhaul features of DSL Rings, instilling confidence in our technology in the UK and around the world.”
BT SIN 498 is the specification defining BT’s VDSL2 service requirements, which ensures that products meet specific standards of support and compatibility, including all aspects of a device’s operation without any vendor interaction.
The MCT also covers supplementary features of BT’s VDSL network, including support for G.INP, SRA, vectoring and extensive diagnostic reporting, all intended to make connectivity more reliable and consistent. Once certified, all future software updates from BT will be tested against the approved products to ensure there will not be conflicts.
Peter Khoury, Genesis Chief Executive and Legal Counsel, said: “Genesis has gone from strength to strength this year, and is asserting itself within the global telecoms industry. Achieving this compliance will open many doors for Genesis, paving the way for UK orders of DBA, particularly to carriers and service providers using BT’s VDSL2 network throughout the UK.”
