MileGate 2012 micro digital supplier line access multiplexer (DSLAM) is a G.fast / very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line 2 (VDSL2) vectoring node that is dedicated to fibre to the building (FTTB) installations.
With eight G.fast interfaces, FTTB with MileGate 2012 is more economical than fibre to the home (FTTH) rollouts. The G.fast 106 MHz profile delivers data rates of 1 Gbps via the building's existing copper-wire pairs.
The MileGate 2012 micro DSLAM is fitted directly to the wall of a building, can be locked up, and is cooled passively so no noise is emitted. An alarm immediately reports any unauthorised attempt to gain access to the operator's network management system.
Due to the VDSL2 vectoring mode, MileGate 2012 allows seamless migration to higher bandwidths. Whether they have vectoring or not, network operators can start with VDSL2 and switch to G.fast if demand grows. Furthermore, by using different frequency bands, asymmetric digital subscriber line ADSL or VDSL2 signals can coexist on the same cable.
