At CES in Las Vegas, Sckipio Technologies plans to conduct a public demonstration of UltraHD video over a G.fast broadband network.

G.fast, a telco standard approved by the ITU in December, is designed to support speeds of up to 1 Gbps over existing telephone wires. The typical G.fast deployment has subscribers connected via twisted-pair copper through a distribution point close to the home. From there, it connects via fiber to the central office.

The company also plans to run a demonstration of OpenFlow control over commercial G.fast DPU hardware. OpenFlow is a non-proprietary communications interface defined between the control and forwarding layers of an SDN architecture.
