Marvell improves Broadband peak capacity with VectorBoost

Marvell is bringing Broadband Access Network to peak capacity with the release of its new cloud-based VectorBoost technology. Currently available to Marvell's global customers, VectorBoost complements Marvell's G.now platforms, offering Elastic Capacity Provision and virtualisation of the Broadband Access Network.

G.now platforms are complete Broadband Access Systems based on ITU-T standard compliant Marvell's G.hn silicon. The platforms extend the ultra-broadband access from the fibre cabinet to users' homes, by taking advantage of the existing copper wiring infrastructure (Twisted Pair or Coaxial Cable) for the last mile to offer significant end-to-end cost savings to operators around the world. Using advanced algorithm for crosstalk mitigation, Marvell's ultra-broadband G.now platforms are designed for multiple telephone line MDU topologies.

The new VectorBoost technology improves the throughput of G.now lines by allocating network resources in real time according to the current needs of traffic, overcoming the throughput limit imposed by the lines' crosstalk and providing the users with much higher peak capacity just when they need it. The VectorBoost Compute Engine (VBCE) can run locally inside the GAM (multi-port G.hn Access Multiplexer) or in the cloud, leveraging additional computing power and ensuring scalability for high density deployments.

KT Corporation, a wireline telco from Korea with market share of 20 million telephony subscribers, selected Marvell's G.now technology in 2014 to enhance broadband access in multi-dwelling unit buildings over KT's existing copper infrastructure. "Powered by G.hn silicon, G.now platforms have ensured a multivendor interoperable environment for KT deployments...providing increased peak capacity up to 1.5Gbps thanks to the VectorBoost feature," said Dr. Dongmyun Lee, Executive Vice President of KT's Institute of Convergence Technology.
