Sunrise Telecom(R) Employs Ikanos VDSL2 Solution in Broadband Access Test Equipment

Ikanos Chipset Enables Comprehensive VDSL2 Test Platform

FREMONT, Calif., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Ikanos Communications, Inc. , a leading developer and provider of Fiber Fast(TM) broadband solutions, today announced that Sunrise Telecom(R) Incorporated (Pink Sheets: SRTI), a leader in test and measurement solutions for today's telecom and cable networks, is using Ikanos' Fx(TM)10050S-5 VDSL2 customer premises equipment (CPE) chipset in its latest VDSL Transceiver Unit-Remote Terminal (VTU-R) test solution for the SunSet MTT(R) modular platform. When used with the SunSet MTT ACM II modular test set, the Sunrise Telecom solution offers service providers the widest range of testing capabilities -- from VDSL2 VTU-R modem emulation to 30 MHz spectrum noise tests -- to support today's triple play network deployments.

The new Sunrise Telecom solution is geared for efficient VDSL2 service installation and verification. An easy-to-use one-button test significantly reduces the up front training and installation time by automatically presenting a summary screen of key metrics, including achieved data rate and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) margin.

"We pioneered DSL installation and maintenance with the world's first handheld test system. This new solution expands our leadership position into the emerging VDSL2 infrastructure needed for triple play deployment," said Bahaa Moukadam, vice president of marketing, Telecom Products Group at Sunrise Telecom. "Our solutions help service providers reduce their operating expenses by allowing them to roll out new high speed services in less time, with lower risk and a higher level of reliability."

Ikanos' fifth generation Fx10050S-5 VDSL2 CPE chipset supports all VDSL2 profiles up to 17.6 MHz and offers up to 100/50 Mbps performance. According to recent reports by market research firm iSuppli, Ikanos' VDSL2 and VDSL chipsets have the highest market share in the industry for both the central office (CO) and the CPE sides.

"The growing demand for bandwidth, combined with the trend to bundle voice, video and data on a single packet-based network, is increasing the complexity of the network," said Dean Westman, vice president and general manager for Ikanos' Gateway Products Group. "By enabling innovative DSL testing and monitoring solutions, Ikanos is easing service providers' deployments of IPTV and triple play services worldwide."

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
