SEPTEMBER 22, 2010: Huawei has showcased a 700-MbPs DSL prototype in Hong Kong based on SuperMIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) technology.

SuperMIMO technology uses four twisted pairs to achieve a downstream rate of 700 Mbps at a distance of 400 m. The technology addresses crosstalk among multiple twisted pairs and increases DSL bandwidth by 75 percent, from an average of 100 Mbps per twisted pair to approximately 175 Mbps, Huawei says. Leveraging SuperMIMO, Huawei says its DSL prototype accommodates high-speed FTTB/FTTC access and private-line applications, such as base station access.

You Yiyong, president of Huawei's Access Network Product Line, said, "DSL technologies for broadband access are showing great market potential. As a leader in the development of DSL technologies, our newest DSL prototype demonstrates our commitment to providing customer-centric and groundbreaking solutions and services for operators to enhance their competitiveness and profitability.”

The company did not reveal a timetable for commercialization.
