Genesis Technical Systems has reported a groundbreaking solution in offering fast broadband over existing Phone Company’s copper infrastructure. DSL Rings is a patented technology which upgrades copper lines to provide 400 MB/s broadband speeds at a fraction of the cost to use expensive fiber to get the job done. Deployed in a Ring configuration on existing telecom standards RPR, VDSL2 and G.Bond, Genesis seems to have solved the last-mile solution to fast broadband access without a defined technology structure from backhaul to network.
The groundbreaking part of this solution is that Genesis claims the 400 MB/s speeds can be sustained over long distances with its technology which outstrips the distance fiber can sustain works against the high cost of fiber infrastructure. Company executives claim lab trials have been completed with two companies, signed agreements with two others, and has interest from 10 additional service providers. Product FAQ’s
Stephen Cooke, Genesis Founder, President and CTO, has over 21 years’ experience in the telecommunications industry with stints at Nortel and NDS in various positions. The company is located in Calgary, Canada, and Cambridge, UK. Not only does the product supply fast broadband speeds but partners with utility companies for meter reading and monitoring services. Uniquely, DSL Ring technology is available across wide geographical areas including both urban and rural settings.
As industry service providers struggle with the costs and logistics of implementing a fast broadband infrastructure, this solution seems to be the logical answer to traditional telecoms that have ultimately given up on competing with rivals on wireline broadband solution. As innovators like Genesis Technical Systems continue to push the boundaries of existing technology, unique solutions evolve to perform the impossible, where others withered at the challenge.
Since both Verizon and AT&T, dominate in telecom infrastructure for the U.S. market, have all but abandoned a wireline broadband solution. However, the advent of a new competitive technology entering the world market must make both companies pause and possibly rethink their long-term strategies. Verizon has abandoned its FTTP solution as too expensive, and AT&T DSL has languished in slow speeds and reliability due to similar infrastructure costs.
What does DSL Ring signify for the future of broadband technology in the U.S.? There does not seem to be a logical reason that existing telecom companies would not explore the implications of a competitive market solution. Since competition from Cable Operators has eroded existing DSL technology telecom companies now have a solution to raise the stakes in vying for customer loyalty with broadband speeds and access.
