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

KDPOF presented guaranteed Wi-Fi Mesh up to 1 Gbps at Broadband World Forum

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 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. … Read more →

The Case for Plastic Optical Fiber in Home Networks

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. … Read more →

KDPOF demo installation displays WiFi and POF for high bandwidth
KDPOF has set up a Plastic Optical Fiber (POF) demo on behalf of Telefónica. “We are delighted that Telefónica has chosen KPDOF for the trial to test the benefits of POF for homes and small and home offices,” stated Carlos Pardo, CEO and Co-founder of KDPOF. “A Plastic Optical Fiber backbone inside the home in combination with WiFi access points is ideal for customer satisfaction, since this provides end users with maximum performance for both wireless and wired connectivity throughout the house.”

WiFi and POF for High Bandwidth

The demo consists of a mockup of a house and displays how the WiFi coverage is marginal when the WiFi access points (APs) are interconnected with the wireless backbone only. Once the APs are interconnected with POF the coverage improves significantly. It thus demonstrates how POF is an ideal complement to WiFi in the home network. … Read more →
