LAS VEGAS, NV â€” Sckipio Technologies, a provider of standards-compliant G.fast modems used to enable ultra-broadband access and mobile backhaul, demonstrated over 750 Mbps of ultrafast broadband upload speeds on existing twisted pair copper telephone wires â€” over 100 times faster than most consumers achieve today.
This performance will allow telcos worldwide to dramatically improve consumer experience. In October of 2015, Sckipio previously demonstrated overall download and upload speeds of over 1.5 Gbps by bonding two phone lines together â€” a highly attractive solution for operators in North America and Taiwan.
At today’s upload speeds, it would take the average broadband subscriber over five hours to upload a thirty-second full-resolution, GoPro 4K video to YouTube â€” the same amount of time it would take to fly from Los Angeles to New York City. With the G.fast solution from Sckipio, consumers could upload the same video in 2.5 minutes.
Utilizing Existing Copper Wires
The ITU standard-compliant G.fast technology utilizes copper wires. The Sckipio solution is perfect for ISPs trying to bring fiber-like broadband speeds into apartment buildings and the small business market at a fraction of the cost of fiber to the premises.
“Most DSL and cable broadband technologies are unable to provide a higher ratio of upload to download speeds, making it very challenging to deliver next generation consumer services,” said David Baum, CEO of Sckipio Technologies. “Since user-generated content has increasingly become important, having fast upload is critical and this is a big advantage of G.fast.” The solution is the world’s fastest implementation of G.fast and it helps telcos compete very effectively against cable operators using DOCSIS 3.1.
