ZTE Strawcom Telecommunications Co., Ltd, a subsidiary of ZTE Corporation, has selected MaxLinear's Wave-2 chipset to develop a new family of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) fiber extenders designed to help service providers reduce the cost of deploying symmetric gigabit services to residential and business users by leveraging existing copper wires, including twisted pair and coaxial cables.

The new solution is composed of two devices, the ZXHN H182G single-port DPU (distribution point unit) and the ZXHN H581 CPE (customer premises equipment), that work together to provide a symmetric gigabit connection over existing twisted pair or coaxial cables.

The H182G single-port DPU provides an optical uplink (compatible with both EPON and GPON), a copper-based downlink (compatible with ITU-T Recommendations G.9960/G.9961) with options for coaxial or twisted pair, and two Gigabit Ethernet ports. The H182G can be either locally powered or reverse powered from customer premises, following the ETSI TS 101 548 standard. Options for both indoor and outdoor installations are available.

The H581 CPE provides a copper-based uplink (compatible with ITU-T Recommendations G.9960/G.9961) with options for coaxial or twisted pair and one Gigabit Ethernet port. Service providers can deploy the H581 CPE either as a standalone network termination device or in combination with ZTE's portfolio of wireless home routers such as the ZXHN H159Q. This high-performance router provides 4x4 802.11ac at 5GHz plus a 3x3 802.11n at 2.4GHz for the best Wi-Fi experience.

The ZTE fiber-extender solution integrates several features designed to provide the best user performance in the most challenging conditions:

- Line rates up to 2Gbps with adaptive modulation and state of the art LDPC (low-density parity check) forward error correction ensure error-free operation over any type of wire, including old telephone lines that may be subject to ingress noise.

- Advanced crosstalk management capabilities deal with both NEXT (near-end crosstalk) and FEXT (far-end crosstalk) in scenarios where multiple fiber extenders are deployed in the same apartment building. The solution, based on MaxLinear's cloud-based VectorBoost architecture, can scale from single-port deployments to hundreds of lines in high-density MDUs.

- Flexible bandwidth allocation capabilities support fixed upstream/downstream ratios or Collective Dynamic Time Allocation (cDTA) configurations.

- AES-128 encryption to ensure maximum user privacy.
