We are proud that Actelser has implemented our optical connectivity technology in their new Snap Data Duplex Kit for home networks. With the Snap Data Duplex Kit, Actelser enables Ethernet over Plastic Optical Fiber (POF) at two additional points. The system allows multiple access ports all around the home in high optical fiber quality.

This means users may enjoy 100 percent of the bandwidth they have signed up for with their service providers. Optical backbones for home networks are the ideal means to leave behind the speed losses of Wi-Fi Repeaters or PLC, since POF systems are completely lossless.

Broadband World Forum: KDPOF Presented Guaranteed Wi-Fi Mesh up to 1 Gbps

At the recent Broadband World Forum in Amsterdam, KDPOF generated great interest for their presenting how the POF backbone complements Wi-Fi Mesh for guaranteed gigabit performance. For customers that demand assured performance, POF is the preferred option. POF cables are practically invisible since installers can reuse any existing conduits or install in a very unnoticeable way in the home. Plastic Optical Fiber is cost-efficient, robust, and much easier and quicker to install than Cat 6 cables. Service Providers worldwide will benefit from being able to deliver guaranteed 1 Gigabit connectivity into homes by combining the POF backbone with Wi-Fi Mesh. Ramón Garcia, Business Development Manager with KDPOF, discussed in his presentation ”Gbps: Do Customers Care?” how to satisfy Gbps customers and thereby increase the number of subscribers willing to pay for qualified bandwidth instead of sole connectivity.

KDPOF presented guaranteed Wi-Fi Mesh up to 1 Gigabit/s with robust, low latency POF backbone at Broadband World Forum 2018

KDPOF will present their robust in-wall optical connectivity at stand 3 at Broadband Forum Asia on May 7-8, 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand. In his presentation “Bringing WiFi Performance to the Next Level” on 7 May at 12:20, Ramón Garcia, Business Development Manager with KDPOF, will explain options and good practices for how to transform access speeds into Wi-Fi speeds for a Gigabit experience. KDPOF boosts Wi-Fi performance to the next level for homes and small and home offices. “With our robust, low latency Plastic Optical Fiber, we provide the highest Wi-Fi mesh performance with a guaranteed 1 Gigabit per second to each access point,” stated Carlos Pardo, CEO and Co-Founder of KDPOF.

“Our field study with a tier one Service Provider proves that, in combination with Wi-Fi mesh nodes, the in-wall POF backbone raises performance throughout the house to over 350 percent in flats and up to 560 percent in multistory houses, compared with using a Wi-Fi backbone.” Plastic Optical Fiber is cost-efficient, low skill to install, and robust. POF can reuse any existing conduits in the home, making the cables invisible. It is much easier and quicker to install than Cat 6 cables. In addition to being used as a backbone for home networking, POF provides convenient Optical Network Termination (ONT) to GW link for a better placement of the Gateway (GW) within the home. By working with KDPOF, operators can satisfy their clients by providing very low latency, reduced jitter, fast download speeds, and reliable connectivity for video.

Field Study Confirms Superiority of Combined POF/Wi-Fi Backbone

KDPOF has conducted the field study to compare Wi-Fi performance using the same additional Wi-Fi Mesh nodes in three different types of homes: single-family houses, multistory houses, and flats. One study group used a POF backbone and the other used a Wi-Fi backbone. Transmission speed was measured in three selected rooms in each case. The results were explicit and significant: averaged out of the 20 family test houses, the POF backbone brought about an improvement of more than 400 percent, while a pure Wi-Fi backbone had a limited performance of up to 80 Mbps in 50 percent of the houses. In the multistory houses, the POF backbone’s performance enhancement reached over 560 percent, whereas Wi-Fi only had a reduced output of up to 62 Mbps. Despite the limited number of Wi-Fi end points used in the test, the numbers provided by the Wi-Fi backbone fall far short of the access speeds users have started to enjoy up to their homes. By using the same Wi-Fi Mesh nodes with a POF backbone, the end user experience achieves those numbers. End users experience what they pay for. 

Another important result was that with only one more access point with POF as the backbone, performance is significantly better sustained than with two additional access points with a Wi-Fi backbone. POF Backbone simplifies the Wi-Fi mesh architecture and reduces costs while improving overall performance substantially. 

KDPOF will present their robust in-wall optical connectivity at stand 3 at Broadband Forum Asia on May 7-8, 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand.

KDPOF presented guaranteed Wi-Fi Mesh up to 1 Gigabit/s with robust, low latency POF backbone at Broadband World Forum 2018

The team at KDPOF is delighted by the great interest at the Broadband World Forum recently in Berlin where they publicly premiered their Plastic Optical Fiber (POF) backbone to guarantee 1 Gigabit/s Wi-Fi Mesh for home and SOHO networks. “In combination with Wi-Fi access points, POF provides end users with maximum performance for both wireless and wired connectivity throughout the house,” stated Carlos Pardo, CEO and Co-founder of KDPOF. “POF can reuse any existing conduits in the home, making these cables invisible.” Plastic Optical Fiber is cost-efficient, low skill to install, and robust. In addition, it provides convenient Optical Network Termination (ONT) to Gateway (GW) link for a better placement of the GW within the home. By working with KDPOF, operators can offer their clients low latency, fast download speeds, and reliable connectivity for video with the ability to match access speeds and integrate with existing Wi-Fi Mesh solutions.

A field trial by KDPOF and Telefónica to test the benefits of POF has demonstrated that KDPOF’s technology helps to provide subscribers with very high sustained connectivity speeds from 100 Mbps onwards all around the home, levels that both wireless or powerline as backbone for Wi-Fi Mesh devices cannot reach. Thus, it allows users to enjoy high-quality video streaming such as 4K IPTV, and supporting services such as online gaming with the lowest latency. Accordingly, the combination of Wi-Fi with Plastic Optical Fiber can increase Quality of Experience dramatically, leading to a surge in customer loyalty.

KDPOF speeds up home networking with POF backbone for higher Quality of Experience

At Broadband World Forum in Berlin, Germany, KDPOF will present their robust in-wall wired optical connectivity from October 23 to 25, 2018 at Stand A133 in Hall 22a. “With our Plastic Optical Fiber backbone, we elevate Wi-Fi EasyMesh(TM) performance to the next level: from more than 100 Mbps up to 1 Gigabit to any point in homes and small and home offices,” stated Carlos Pardo, CEO and Co-Founder of KDPOF. In combination with Wi-Fi access points, POF provides end users with maximum performance for both wireless and wired connectivity throughout the house.

Quality of Experience

“ISPs and Telecom operators are facing the paradox that while access speeds have increased, customer satisfaction rates drop if home networks cannot keep up,” added Carlos Pardo. Access speeds are growing higher and higher while users at home are locally connecting more and more devices to the internet. Customers expect to experience the speeds they are paying for. If these speeds are lower than expected, they are disappointed and the Quality of Experience declines. A trial of KDPOF and Telefónica to test the benefits of POF has resulted in the outcome that KDPOF’s technology helps to provide subscribers with very high connectivity speeds all around the home, allowing users to enjoy high-quality video streaming such as 4K IPTV, and supporting services such as online gaming with the lowest latency. Thus, the combination of Wi-Fi with Plastic Optical Fiber can increase Quality of Experience dramatically, leading to a surge in customer loyalty.

While ISPs and Telecom have increase access speeds, customer satisfaction rates drop if home networks cannot keep up with consumers interconnecting more and more devices.

While ISPs and Telecom have increase access speeds, customer satisfaction rates drop if home networks cannot keep up with consumers interconnecting more and more devices.

ISPs and Telecom operators are offering higher and higher access speeds. At the same time, users at homes are interconnecting more and more devices and to the Internet. This translates in a crowding of the network that has to carry all this traffic between the devices and to/from the internet.

Despite the significant investments made in broadband networks in order to keep pace with the consumer’s increasing demands, the home network has been left behind. ISPs and Telecom operators offer higher and higher Internet access speeds, but they have ignored issues and challenges in deploying this in the end users homes. As a result, ISPs and Telecom operators are experiencing degrading customer satisfaction levels. The paradox is that the customer satisfaction reduces whilst the offered Internet speed increased.
