Raising the Bar: Full Cancellation Doubles Data Rates, Reach and Revenue Potential From Next-Generation Service Provider Networks

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 13, 2011) - International Telecommunications Union (ITU) standard G.vector promises to dramatically increase the available bandwidth over traditional copper lines to a fiber-like 100 megabits per second and beyond at a fraction of the cost for deploying full fiber networks. But to truly guarantee that performance and utilize the full bandwidth available, service providers must have systems capable of full vectoring, not the partial cancellation that has been discussed by some in the industry. Ikanos Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN), a leading provider of advanced broadband semiconductor and software products for the digital home, today announced the availability of a new whitepaper on the G.vector standard and successful implementation strategies for this breakthrough technology. The whitepaper outlines how full vectoring -- not partial cancellation -- can deliver the performance benefits of G.vector as well as drive maximum revenue from the new bandwidth-intensive services it enables.

Entitled "Raising the Bar: Full Vectoring More than Doubles Data Rates, Reach and Revenue Potential from Service Provider Networks," the whitepaper is available now for download by visiting http://www.ikanos.com/2011-campaigns/the-case-for-full-cancellation/

Ikanos NodeScale Vectoring
Ikanos NodeScale Vectoring is the only ITU G.vector system to use full vectoring. It eliminates the crosstalk that occurs on copper wire across an entire node -- up to 384 ports. By identifying and canceling crosstalk interference, NodeScale Vectoring increases robustness and reliability, resulting in dramatically increased broadband throughput speeds up to 100 Mbps performance and beyond over existing copper networks. With NodeScale Vectoring, service providers can easily extend very high-speed Internet access and new critical services such as multiple high-definition television streams, distance learning, video conferencing, telemedicine, and more, without having to incur the high costs of installing complete fiber-to-the-home networks.
