Densely populated and underserved areas across the UK are set to benefit from high-speed and reliable broadband, thanks to Genesis Technical Systems’ technology.
Nationwide carrier Next Generation Access (NGA) will use the company’s mBond system in its existing telecoms infrastructure to provide last mile connectivity to homes and businesses.
Genesis claims its solution addresses the “inherent” issues associated with G.Bond and EFM (Ethernet in the first mile) bonding. It says mBond can deliver point-to-point/multipoint solutions to suburban and rural customers beyond the reach of fibre or where wireless solutions are unviable. The company claims its technology enables service providers to deliver “life changing” broadband speeds of more than 1Gbps over extended distances.
NGA’s initial deployment is scheduled to take place in January 2018 in Guildford. The company’s founder and technical director Kenny Roberts says: “After many months of technology analysis, mBond – in combination with our primary MSAN equipment – offered the best possible performance, cost efficiency and reliability for our customers around the country.”
This latest order for mBond follows the technology being recently certified by BT which, according to Genesis, is widely regarded as an industry ‘Gold Standard’. The firm says it is one of only nine global manufacturers to have achieved this.
