Comtest Networks has released a G.fast Balun solution specifically designed for longer coax reach. The Comtest G.fast Balun is a passive inline device designed to convert a G.fast signal carried on a balanced twisted pair cable to an unbalanced 75Ω coax cable.
G.fast promises to deliver gigabit speeds over standard twisted pair Telco cables. Designed for use on short lengths of twisted copper, the reach can be extended by using coax. Capitalizing on the ultra-broadband capabilities of G.fast, you can push these higher bandwidths further and further into rural areas and older neighborhoods, homes and buildings. Due to real world constraints and the possible saturation of other services in the business and MDU environment, the optimum way to distribute G.fast is by using coax.
Our G.fast baluns are also designed to be used in environments that do not have existing Telephone wiring or inadequate twisted pair wiring inside the home or building. These G.fast baluns will provide an additional way to bring Video programming and high speed broadband services into the premise by using the existing coax which in many cases is already in the walls of these homes and buildings.
The Comtest Networks G.fast balun provides the perfect solution to provide superfast broadband for any MDU, business office and small campus environment.
