Better broadband service for high-density areas top the features added to Wave7 Optics Inc.‘s Last Mile Link (LML) Fiber-to-the-Premises (FTTP) product line.
Wave7 has added “advanced Fiber-to-the-Curb (FTTC)” services to its broadband access categories. According to the company, the service gives subscribers greater bandwidth and lower installation costs than traditional FTTC technology, which is often used in apartment building or other high-density locations.
Wave7 says the new higher density version of its Last Mile Gateway (LMG) makes it possible to share fiber data rates across multiple subscribers, compared to connecting each subscriber individually with DSL or cable, and consequentially reducing the cost of access.
The newest LMG features eight Fast Ethernet Ports, eight POTS ports and eight RF video connections in a compact platform, serving at least eight customers with triple play services, the company claimed.
The company also announced its new LMS 3.1 management system now features automatic network configuration and service provisioning capabilities.
Once an installer connects the subscriber’s LMG to the FTTP network, the LMG automatically receives its IP address from a DHCP server. The LMS automatically discovers the LMG in seconds, the company said, and downloads pre-defined configuration settings to the device. Once the LMG is configured, the LMS signals the service provider’s billing that the device is ready to receive the subscriber’s service package.
