Broadcom announced the production release of G.fast 212 MHz system-level vector processor, BCM65550, which enables gigabit broadband services to be delivered to high-density residential sites. Telecom operators can now deploy fiber to these locations and leverage the existing installed copper lines for the final gigabit speed connection.
G.fast provides fiber-equivalent speeds over legacy copper wiring which avoids the expensive cable pulls and complex rights of way. Existing G.fast solutions address lower density installations, but with the BCM65550, operators can now support up to 192 lines of vectored 212MHz G.fast for high-density residential sites.
The device builds upon Broadcom’s market-proven G.fast modem and embedded vectoring solution, the BCM65400, now supporting production G.fast deployments across the globe. Vectoring, or crosstalk cancellation, requires extensive compute resources, and the BCM65550 delivers this without compromise. Crosstalk is canceled across all lines with extreme resolution, achieving nearly identical performance to ideal, crosstalk-free environments.
The Key Features of the BCM65550 Vector Processor
- Crosstalk cancellation solutions for up to 192 twisted-pair copper ports
- Hybrid Vectoring to support the parallel operation of G.fast and VDSL on a single device
- Proxy Vectoring to offer seamless support for new G.fast cards introduced into a legacy VDSL system
The BCM65550 has been released for mass production.
