FTTdp is a revolutionary fiber/copper hybrid approach. Fiber arrives to the basement of the building or to the door of a subscriber’s house and VDSL2 is used over the existing copper pairs, which could be more cost-effective than deploying FTTP/FTTH. FTTdp functions as a media converter, terminating a PON fiber access line at the neighborhood distribution point and connecting to a standard based VDSL2 gateway in the subscriber’s residence.
The DPU-4658 is a FTTdp DPU which includes one GPON ONT and 8 VDSL2 interfaces. Combining the fiber, copper wire, and the broadband technologies the FTTdp system supports 100/50 Mbps DS/US throughput in 200 meter distance to each end user for multiple HDTV, Internet Gaming & other high bandwidth applications.
In addition, the DPU-4658 is powered by Reverse Power Feeding to allow for an easy installation without considering the availability of electricity. The DPU is operational even when reverse powered with only one VDSL line.
