Broadband network operators can ensure a seamless business and smart home experience for their customers with the release of two new multi-gigabit Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) devices today at the FTTH conference in Madrid.
S&T Iskratel has unveiled its Iskratel Innbox X24, a multi-gigabit XGS-PON optical network terminal (ONT) offering symmetrical upstream and downstream data rates of 10 Gbps. Internet connection speed on the ONT is tested by the integrated Ookla™ Speedtest.
Also on display is the Iskratel Innbox M92, an EasyMesh™ compliant Wi-Fi 6 mesh access point that extends the availability of bandwidth-consuming services over the air with multi-gigabit coverage. Innbox M92 supports the delivery of services such as multiple Ultra High Definition (UHD) IP TV streams.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that reliable broadband is critical for remote work and learning, and with more companies offering work-from-home or hybrid work, the market for faster, more symmetrical internet continues to expand « , said Mitja Golja, Director of Business Development at S&T Iskratel. “With the rapid growth of devices within the home and offices, our new CPE devices can meet the upstream and downstream data rate demands required in every corner of the smart home and business.”
The Iskratel Innbox X24 can function as a bridge or router, offering a dual-box FTTH configuration in both single-operator and multi-operator deployments. In addition to a Gigabit Ethernet LAN port, the Iskratel Innbox X24 features a 10 gigabit LAN port that supports multi-gigabit speeds of 2.5, 5 and 10 Gbps and offers an improved user experience. The device has an integrated Fiber Termination Unit (FTU), which simplifies deployment and reduces operating expenses.
The unique Iskratel Innbox M92 not only works as an agent access point or mesh controller, but can use its gigabit Ethernet WAN to act as a home gateway, excelling in single-box ETTH configurations and dual-box configurations with FTTH or 5G FWA . While supporting a cumulative Wi-Fi data rate of 1,800 Mbps, the Iskratel Innbox M92 offers full gigabit throughput on dual-band Wi-Fi 6 and two Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports. The device hosts the Innbox Premium Application Suite which enhances user security and privacy and enables operators to increase revenue.
Both devices are fully compliant with the Code of Practice on Energy Consumption of Broadband Equipment, with power consumption 30-35% below the limits set by the Code.
