Positron Access Diagram AK626LC

Positron’s FlexStream FS-GIGA-08 Ethernet Access Device (EAD) offers service providers a cost-effective multi-pair bonded VDSL2 Ethernet over Copper (EoCu) and Gigabit Optical. This solution is ideal for the delivery of managed Ethernet services for business customers, small cell backhaul and other demanding applications. As a CE 2.0 certified demarcation device (NID), the FS-GIGA-08 facilitates the provisioning, monitoring and control of end-to-end Ethernet services with comprehensive support for SLA enforcement.


The FS-GIGA-08 is specifically designed as a carrier grade solution to provide Ethernet services for business Internet access, MTU/MDU, small cell backhaul, L2 VPN, streamed video and Gigabit connectivity. It is environmentally hardened to provide service providers the flexibility to place the unit inside a building or in an outside plant cabinet.

Feature Overview

The FS-GIGA-08 interfaces naturally to an Ethernet switch or to a 3rd party DSLAM/ MSAN over multi-pair VDSL2 with comprehensive support for VLAN and Metro Ethernet Forum standards. The Layer 3 features of the FS-GIGA-08 make it the ideal “light touch” IP Router to complement the role of the aggregation router at the edge of the core/ transport network infrastructure. The FS-GIGA-08 brings the simplicity and scalability of SD-WAN to the world of Managed Ethernet Services. Turning on wholesale and business Ethernet services has never been easier. Of course, the FS-GIGA-08 also offers comprehensive support for SNMP, CLI and web GUI management interfaces.

Bonded VDSL2 and ADSL2+ Access

The FS-GIGA-08 is a standards-based 8-pair VDSL2 and ADSL2+ EAD which provides network operators the means to deliver advanced Ethernet over bonded copper services to business customers at minimal cost over their existing copper infrastructure. The FS-GIGA-08 is fully standards compliant and interoperates with leading 3rd party DSLAMs from Nokia, Calix, Adtran, Huawei and others. When using Vectoring and Impulse Noise Protection (G.INP), the FS-GIGA-08 delivers the best possible VDSL2 performance under all conditions.

MTU Application

The FS-GIGA is the optimal platform to distribute a managed Ethernet Business Service to multiple tenants on any floor of a business building (MTU). With support for multi-pair VDSL2, G.fast (copper or Coax), Ethernet (Cat 5/5E/6) and fiber (active or GPON), the FS-GIGA is completely agnostic to any wiring that can be found in such an MTU environment.

MTU Challenges

A large MTU segment exists where deploying fiber within the building is a significant challenge

  • Range of obstacles impacting the time and cost required to distribute broadband throughout the building

Service requirements in the MTU have evolved

  • Consumer CPE unable to support the demands of mission critical business applications
  • SLA management, Network Security, and seamless provisioning and activation (via SDN/SD-WAN) are base level requirements
  • Minimum 100Mbps regardless of floor required

Re-using existing wiring presents a compelling and cost effective distribution methodology

  • Time, Cost, Safety, and Performance concerns can all be addressed

Meeting the MTU Challenges with the FS-GIGA

  • FS-GIGA cost efficiently brings enough bandwidth to each floor of an MTU for any existing medium type
  • FS-GIGA brings a minimum of 100 Mbps Symmetrical to each tenant on a given floor
  • FS-GIGA meets the tenant’s Ethernet Business Service expectations with CE 2.0 features and functions
  • FS-GIGA SD-WAN capabilities support rapid and remote provisioning of Ethernet Business Services via “Instant ON” approach
  • FS-GIGA is the only solution addressing the ALL the MTU challenges and the needs of the Operators and their Business tenants using ANY riser backbone technology
  • With FS-GIGA, Operators can deliver services with guaranteed bandwidth to individual tenants that are backed by Service Level Agreements (SLA)
  • The Service OAM features of the FS-GIGA provide precise delay and jitter measurements for pro-active monitoring and management of the E-LINE, E-LAN or E-ACCESS service
