NetComm gains Gfast certification

By

Two of NetComm's Gfast 212MHz fibre-to-the-distribution-point (FTTDP) products have become the first in the global market to achieve full interoperability certification under Broadband Forum's (BBF) ID337i2 Gfast/212MHz interoperability test plan.

NetComm's NDD-4110 Gfast distribution point unit and NDD-0300 Gfast network termination device have been officially certified as being compliant with the BBF ID337i2 Gfast/212MHz interoperability test plan following testing by the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Laboratory (UNN-IOL).

Certification means network operators can confidently select the NetComm Gfast devices for use in conjunction with similarly certified devices from other vendors.

The Gfast 212MHz profile enables gigabit broadband to be delivered over existing twisted-pair copper lead-in cables.

"This is a fantastic achievement from our engineering teams and underlines our position as a world leader in the development of Gfast 212MHz technology," said NetComm chief engineering officer Adrian Macarthur-King.

"Our engineers have worked hard alongside the BBF, UNH-IOL and the industry's leading Gfast silicon technology partners to reach this goal of Gfast 212MHz interoperability for our key FttDP products.

"NetComm has engineered innovative products and worked closely with industry partners through a series of Plugfest events at UNH-IOL to refine the test plan, identify issues in the implementation and develop and deploy improvements to the products to achieve the highest possible level of interoperability.

"Achieving this accreditation now means that operators around the world will be able to use these market leading NetComm products alongside Gfast equipment from any other vendor that also achieves the same BBF interoperability accreditation."

Last year, NBN Co selected NetComm to supply NTDs and DPUs.

Last month, NetComm agreed to be acquired by US-based Casa Systems for $161 million.
