G.fast Access

G.fast technology requires 1Gbps throughput over copper lines. A Distribution Point Unit (DPU) solution for Fiber-To-The-Distribution-Point (FTTdp) must support at minimum 5Gbps for 2.5GE fiber drop network or 20Gbps for 10GE fiber drop. In the same time, the DPU power consumption must be low enough to allow reverse power feeding for a remote device from customers’ residential gateway. For G.fast FTTdp deployments, Ethenrity Networks offers ENETZ/99 family of flow processor SoCs:

ENET3850Z/99 – 5Gbps low-cost and low power solution supporting up to 16 G.fast modems; ENET4200Z/99 – 16Gbps solution supporting 8, 16 or 24 G.fast modems; ENET4820Z/99 – 20Gbps solution supporting up to 48 G.fast modems; ENET4840/99 – 40Gbps solution supporting up to 48 G.fast modems
