Sckipio Announces World's First Single Port DPU With Dynamic Time Assignment

Extends GPON Networks by Leveraging Existing Coax and Copper Wiring

RAMAT GAN, ISRAEL--(Marketwired - October 11, 2016) - Sckipio Technologies, the leader in, announces the first single-port distribution point unit (DPU) reference design to provide up to 1Gbps of symmetrical broadband over existing coax and copper wiring. The solution acts like virtual fibre by extending GPON networks with twisted pair or coax within multi-dwelling units (MDUs) and single-family households (SFUs).

The new reference design leverages Sckipio's breakthrough dynamic time assignment technology (DTA), which provides up to 1Gbps of broadband access in either direction. The solution also supports reverse power feeding from Microsemi to make it easy to implement in many environments including at the door, at the floor, in the basement or outside the residence.

Sckipio's solution uses a very thin management layer for allowing operators to keep their existing GPON management layer and to extend it with a separate management layer. This speeds up the FTTH rollout by avoiding costly and time consuming IT integration of new management protocols into existing management frameworks.

The joint reference design was build in conjunction with Intel and Microsemi, offering OEMs the fastest path to deployable single-port DPUs. The solution will work within an existing Intel-based GPON management infrastructure.

"Sckipio is opening up an entirely new use-case for," said Teresa Mastrangelo, Principal Analyst, Broadbandtrends. "By combining DTA and unmanaged, Sckipio makes it effortless to add to any GPON network."
