During the last week of September, multiple chipset companies met at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) to perform the first interoperability testing of the ITU-T’s new G.vector specifications. The G.vector technology provides a boost to VDSL2 subscriber data rates by leveraging new features in the G.vector specification to cancel the crosstalk in real-time between VDSL2 enabled wire pairs in the copper network. Removing the effects of the crosstalk noise between wire pairs allows the G.vector equipment to operate at higher bit rates, and will give subscribers quality access to even higher bandwidth services. Broadcom, Ikanos, Lantiq, Realtek and Triductor participated in the plugfest, providing chipset platforms to test with one another. Telebyte also attended, providing test equipment to simulate the crosstalk of copper networks during the testing. The next event is scheduled for sometime in November at the UNH-IOL in Durham, N.H.
