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."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
