Qualcomm delivers new GigaDSL offerings to help broadband operators transition to GB services

Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) subsidiary Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., has introduced end-to-end GigaDSL products that enable broadband operators to transition deployments from VDSL to gigabit access technologies, the company said.

Designed to meet the requirements for the migration for existing VDSL by operators, especially in Korea and Japan, the new QCO5700 for multiple dwelling units (MDU) and the QCM5720 for customer premises equipment (CPE) can provide up to one gigabit per second (Gbps) broadband over existing telephone lines, while maintaining interoperability with carriers´ existing modems and seamless coexistence with deployed infrastructure.

The new GigaDSL chipsets are ideal as operators keep pace with consumer demand and national mandates for broadband access, with minimal service interruption.
