Telefónica revolutionizes the connectivity market with plastic fibre and 60GHz Wi-Fi
  • Plastic optical fibre (POF) guarantees up to 1 Gbps, is easy to install, given that it can use all the existing channels in the home, and is secure, as it cannot be intercepted.
  • The 60GHz Wi-Fi permits bandwidth with a theoretical maximum of 4600 Mbps.

Telefónica presented a pioneering innovation project in Spain based on plastic optical fibre (POF), a solution for home connectivity which is easy to install and guarantees up to 1 Gbps for customers. In addition, in order to optimize the connectivity, Telefónica demonstrated the potential of the 60GHz Wi-Fi technology, which can offer theoretical connectivities of up to 4600 Mbps. … Read more →

September 26th, 2016 @ Worldwide

Exhibiting at IEEE’s Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day which took place in Paris this year, OGEAR Japanese National project ran a demo of a 1Gbit/s automotive Ethernet stereoscopic ADAS across 15 meters of Plastic Optical Fibre (POF).

The Japanese Automotive Industry led by JASPAR organization is running a three years national funded project to develop the next generation optical networks in automotive. The first step in this race will be 1 Gbps over Plastic Optical Fiber and the chosen technology has been KDPOF´s Gigabit over POF technology.

The advantages of POF over other copper-based alternatives are well shown in the following video from the OGEAR council shown at the latest Paris Ethernet & IP Conference held in September 2016

Comparison of Copper based versus POF based home networks

We invite you to check this great video from Fränkische´s Datalight © POF based system. It tells in a very eye-catching way the advantages that a POF based home network brings to the user compared to traditional Cat 5, copper systems.

As mentioned in other post Fränkische is launching a well thought line of Kits aimed towards installers which would like to cover the  increasingly growing market of home data networks.
