SYDNEY, Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NetComm Wireless Limited (ASX: NTC) today announced the launch of its VDSL/ADSL WiFi Gigabit Modem Router (NF4V) to significantly boost the speed of copper-based broadband connections to homes and businesses. Featuring an NBN compatible Broadcom chipset to support VDSL services, the NF4V interoperates with Alcatel-Lucent's DSLAMs to deliver the bandwidth needed for video streaming and other bandwidth-intensive activities.
VDSL technology can improve performance from 50% - 90% (Note 1) by reducing noise interference over the copper line, and is set to be deployed across the globe as an increasing number of ISPs abandon plans to decommission copper infrastructure which comprises around 60 per cent of the worldwide market, according to ABI.
NetComm Wireless' NF4V effectively deals with capacity and latency issues to deliver fibre-like service speeds without the need to rewire existing premises. The all-inclusive NF4V allows users to connect to the Internet using a choice of VDSL2, ADSL2+ or Gigabit WAN for FTTP connectivity; and is easy to share between multiple devices via WiFi and four Gigabit Ethernet ports. Ideal for home and small business use, the NF4V also features VoIP functionality for cost-effective online phone calls and supports file sharing via connected USB hard drives.
"We remain committed to staying ahead of new waves in technology and are pleased to have launched the NF4V ahead of the NBN's proposed use of VDSL to the premise as part of its FTTN plan. This future-proof device bundles a number of Internet connection options into a single unit to enable fast and reliable connectivity now, and in the future, as the world's copper-based networks are upgraded," said Danny Morrison, General Manager, NetComm Wireless.
The NF4V is one of Australia's first NBN compatible VDSL modem routers available to leading Internet Service Providers, and is designed to deliver blistering fast broadband access to single and multi-dwelling (fibre-to-the-basement) deployments.
