Spediant Systems, a Tel Aviv developer of products that enable higher capacity broadband services over copper, is developing a Multi-Loop DSL (MLDSL) offering that is says allows telecommunications carriers to deliver greater bandwidth and new services over copper to business customers.

Details were announced today at the Next Generation Networks (NGN) conference in Boston.

Utilizing existing copper infrastructure, Spediant’s MLDSL will enable service providers to deploy broadband services to small and medium-size business customers, at lower cost than and without the delays from fiber deployment.

According to the company, MLDSL enables a business to extend its Ethernet network with a full speed of 10 megabits per second (Mbps) as it is transmitted across the public network. Also, the service area reach of the carrier is more than doubled with MSDSL, it said.

“Established and competitive carriers once had big plans to install fiber almost everywhere, but economic conditions now force them to make the best use of the current copper infrastructure," said Haim Volinsky, Spediant’s vice-president of marketing and sales.

"MLDSL enables fiber-speed services over the existing copper plant with a minimal capital expenditure and a speedy return on investment,”.

Spediant expects to introduce its MLDSL solution to market in early 2003, when it will be available for trial installations with telecom carriers’ labs.
