Paradyne Corp., a provider of triple play broadband loop carriers (BLCs) and Ethernet access equipment, today introduced the ability to deliver Ethernet services of greater than 10 megabits per second over two copper pairs using extended rate G.shdsl with its new 4279 IP DSLAM and 1750 series CPE.

The 4279 IP DSLAM and the 1750 series CPE optimize throughput for business class services and provide technology standards such as extended rate G.shdsl, which boosts SHDSL performance to approximately 5.7Mbps per pair, the company said.

Despite the ever-growing need for bandwidth, 90% of today’s office buildings still do not have access to fiber, the company said.

The offerings allow service providers to eliminate the need for trenching and installing expensive fiber connections while capitalizing on the latest 5.7 Mbps per pair capabilities.

“With bandwidth-hungry applications, service providers are always looking to do more with less,” said Ken Hood, vice president of product management and marketing, Paradyne.

The IP DSLAM market and the Ethernet in the First Mile market continue to expand as service providers offer an array of bandwidth-intensive services and applications.

Infonetics Research reported in February that the worldwide IP DSLAM revenue approached US$700 million in 2004, a 58% increase from 2003, and is projected to make up 69% of the total DSLAM revenue by 2008.
