SK Broadband uses HFR solution with Sckipio technology and chipset to roll out gigabit service to Seoul and Seongnam, South Korea

RAMAT GAN, Israel, Nov. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Sckipio Technologies and HFR announced the world’s first gigabit 24-port distribution point unit (DPU) capable of scaling up to 96 subscribers. Based on Sckipio’s 212MHz Gfast technology and cross-DPU vectoring, HFR is able to deliver true, scalable and deployable gigabit broadband in large multi-dwelling unit (MDU) environments. SK Broadband is leveraging this HFR solution for their new South Korean gigabit service for residents in large and older apartment buildings.

HFR will market this solution worldwide and anticipates particular interest for high-port gigabit density in Asia-Pacific where fiber infrastructure does not reach all the way to the individual apartments. This region has a high concentration of MDU residency. In Tokyo alone, 70 percent of residents live in apartments, yet millions of these residents in Japan are offered only VDSL because fiber can go only as far as the basement and not all the way to the apartment.

“Telcos can now bring deep fiber to a DPU at the street, pole or basement in the building. Then, they can achieve gigabit broadband speeds by connecting twisted pair (telephone) wire from that DPU directly into the apartment,” said Yongsook Son, Vice President from HFR. “With Sckipio’s Gfast chipset, HFR can now help Asia-Pacific telcos rapidly and affordably increase their gigabit footprint while reducing their CAPEX.”

The new DPU has 24 subscriber ports and it can scale up to 96 ports by stacking 4 such DPUs using Sckipio’s cross-DPU-vectoring technology. Powered by Sckipio’s SCK23000 family of chipsets, the HFR DPU delivers second-generation Gfast and supports up to 2Gbps in both downstream and upstream directions. The HFR solution delivers gigabit access speeds to four times as many subscribers sharing a single binder than competitive solutions – all without the need for an external vectoring engine.

“By partnering with HFR, we are accelerating Asia-Pacific telecommunications companies’ ability to deliver gigabit speeds to MDU locations,” said David Baum, Sckipio CEO. “SK Broadband is the first to use our 24-port DPU in a commercial deployment and makes the case for Gfast technology to deliver gigabit service to subscribers without needing to bring costly fiber all the way into the apartment.”
