The Comtest MAQS (Multi Application Quick Access Solution) is a complete connectivity solution for the ultra-broadband capabilities of G.fast and is fully backward compatible with VDSL2 and ADSL. The MAQS 7-pin module contains both dual Primary Protection and the Splitter. It provides primary protection for both the DSLAM or DPU via the Splitter (G.fast or VDSL2).
The MAQS eliminates the need for fork lift replacements at existing FTTC sites as port exhaustion is aproaching or implementation of Vectoring is desired. An upgrade to the MAQS can be accomplished in a short maintenance window, eliminates about half of the cables required, and in many cases the MAQS can double the port density in your cabinet at a fraction of the cost of these traditional methods.
