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.
