D-Link Reveals New High Speed Strategy

From D-Link’s press release:

D-Link today announced the successful unveiling of its High Speed Digital Home Connected Consumer Strategy with product rollouts of Ethernet to the Home (ETTH) and Fiber to the Home (FTTH) technology solution installations throughout Japan, China and now testing in the United States. Developing a wide array of delivery tools and products for network infrastructure, D-Link components and devices support high-speed converged IP and electronic media for telecommunications and broadband service providers.

With connectivity products based on Ethernet To The Home (ETTH) and Fiber To The Home (FTTH) technologies that deliver data and information at speeds up to 50Megabits per second or even up to 1 gigabit, this technology clearly represents the next generation of networking.

D-Link connectivity solutions drive digital home technology, new Internet capabilities, faster streaming applications and an explosion in home networking together to give consumers a dramatically larger choice of content possibilities through one converged IP network.

“Affordable real time high-speed communications is now becoming a reality with Ethernet to the home connectivity,” said Steven Joe, President and CEO of D-Link. “Plugging a fat pipe to the digital home should inspire those who best understand entertainment development to create more compelling content for Video on Demand, on-line multi-player gaming and other bandwidth intensive applications.

“This new level of extreme bandwidth to the home delivers the high-speed throughput needed to solidify the Internet as the key mass medium transparent network for the 21st century,” said Joe.

Japan and China Forging Ahead

Analysts have reported that Asia has taken a leadership role in deployment of Ethernet and Fiber to the home high bandwidth networking. Currently, Japan is providing up to 30Mbps of bandwidth to 22% of its broadband subscribers for data streaming and other bandwidth intensive applications. D-Link’s OEM/ODM company (Alpha Networks) has been delivering in-market connectivity solutions in conjunction with Broadband providers for some time now.

Most analyst are focusing on China as the next major emerging market for this new high-speed Ethernet and Fiber technology, which has a growing base of users through the large telecommunications company giants such as China Telecom, the world’s largest wire-line service provider.

D-Link’s extensive Ethernet networking connectivity solutions successes combined with field tests and market acceptance plus strong alliances with major Telecommunications companies and cable service providers have paved the way for D-Link’s ETTH and FTTH connectivity technology introduction here in the United States and the company’s strategic participation in the planning and rollout of increased bandwidth to the home.

Currently, the United States is starting to deploy trials in technologies ranging from 1-3Mbps to 30Mbps. D-Link continues to provide Metro-Ethernet networking equipment to the telecommunications and service provider arena.

Commonly referred to as the “last mile”, which denotes the network technology and type for local connections to a house or business, it is where the potential exists to increase the scale of the bandwidth and ultimately the speed. In most locations, ETTH and FTTH infrastructure is currently in place up to a point in the architecture, however, it needs backend support for ISPs and the “last mile” connection installed. D-Link has been designing, developing and manufacturing key technology components, devices and solutions that create seamless communications within the infrastructure access and connectivity between the multiple broadband protocols as well as “last mile” solutions for the realization of increased bandwidth to the digital home.
