Huawei has announced a 700 Mbps DSL prototype in Hong Kong, that enables operators to build broadband access networks with SuperMIMO technology. The prototype far exceeds the industry’s current DSL broadband wireline communications technology, which reaches a data rate of 100 Mbps.
SuperMIMO technology uses four twisted pairs to achieve a downstream rate of 700 Mbps at a distance of 400 meters. This innovative technology methodically addresses crosstalk among multiple twisted pairs and dramatically increases DSL bandwidth by 75 percent, from an average of 100 Mbps per twisted pair to approximately 175 Mbps.
Leveraging SuperMIMO, Huawei’ s 700Mbps DSL prototype accommodates high-speed FTTB/FTTC access and bandwidth-hungry private line applications, such as base station access.
