DSL Rings is a patented technology that enables telecommunication companies (Telcos) to deliver superfast broadband at a fraction of the cost of fibre to the home (FTTH) or fibre to the premise (FTTP), whilst delivering more than enough capacity to bring very low cost triple play and quad play offers to both urban and rural areas.
DSL Rings facilitates Telco customer acquisition, win-back and retention by offering better, faster services; more bandwidth; and lower unit cost (per Mb/s) than current methods of delivering broadband services over copper, stated Stephen Cooke, Genesis President & CTO.
In Europe alone, there are over 40 million people who currently do not have access to a basic 2 Mb/s service. DSL Rings supports VoIP, Wi-Fi, Wi-Max, M2M, CCTV and CATV, automated meter reading, mobile network offload, femtocells, picocells, HD IPTV, video conferencing, video streaming and video on demand. It has the potential to change the lives of millions of people through home working, cloud computing, ecommerce, distance learning, telemedicine and access to government services over the Internet.
DSL Rings can be deployed in rural and urban situations with the potential for return on investment typically within 24 months following low cost, rapid deployment.
DSL Rings is generally backhaul agnostic and works with both conventional copper, using standards-based bonded DSL technology, and FTTCab, or fibre to the neighbourhood (FTTNode). It is a great alternative for FTTH or FTTP. DSL Rings can also provide backhaul for femtocells to off-load congested mobile networks.
Garry Kelman, Genesis CEO said: We are very excited to be launching DSL Rings at Broadband World Forum. DSL Rings is about enabling affordable Superfast Broadband for everyone, whether they live in rural communities or inner cities.
Genesis is showcasing its environmentally friendly DSL Rings, with live demonstrations at the Broadband World Forum exhibition on stand G54 from Tuesday 16th to Thursday 18th of October 2012.
Genesis is currently scheduling DSL Rings field trials and anticipates that the technology will be commercially available in the second quarter of 2013.
