Dec 2020, Fremont CA - Actelis Networks, is the market leader in high performance broadband over hybrid Fiber-Copper networks, introduces its latest addition to its well-known Broadband Amplifier (BBA) series. The new UF-BBA-C, utilizing Actelis’ advanced technology, helps carriers and service providers offer the high bandwidth services they are looking to offer their customers while significantly simplifying, and minimizing cost and time to service.
The use of the higher-frequencies by ultra-fast copper technologies, such as VDSL 35B/super vectoring and G.fast significantly increases the sensitivity to common in-house impairments such as bad wiring and un-terminated lines (bridge-taps) that may cause a significant drop in performance. Correcting these impairments is extremely costly and lengthy operation for the carriers as it requires assigning and sending a technician to each of these customer homes as well as setting up an appointment with the customer at their convenient time.
Actelis UF-BBA-C simplifies this process, reduces labor costs, to accelerate service delivery and improve customer satisfaction. The UF-BBA-C is an extremely small device - 90/70/28 mm 3.5/2.7/1.1 inches. UF-BBA-C can be self-installed by the customer in minutes next to their existing home modem or gateway. Using the UF-BBA-C can successfully mitigate significant drop in performance due to these commonly found in-home bad wiring or bridge taps.
Actelis UF-BBA-C models support VDSL2 35B – SBA-C and VDSL2 17a- VBA-C. To Learn more and see examples on how SBA-C successfully overcome bad in-house wiring to significantly increase data rates click here
