On 2016-03-31, InnoRoute successfully finished its research on flexible VDSL/G.fast distribution points in the research project Flex-DP.
In bandwidth distribution infrastructures, it is important to upgrade existing networks with Fiber to the distribution point (FTTdp). In this setting, the glass fiber is led to a building to a relatively short distance to a flexibly positioned distribution point. For the rest of the distance, an already existing copper line is used. The issue that has to be answered by the partners involved in the project FlexDP is how data rates of 1-2 Gbit/s can be realized. The project is funded by Bayerische Forschungsstiftung.
InnoRoute provided its packet processor FlowEngineTM, adapted to the special requirements of G.fast distribution points. InnoRoute used its experience in cost efficient packet processing and methods for conception exploration from previous funding project activities. InnoRoute actively researches SDN-based solutions for the controlling of QoS processes in access networks, the last mile, and firm networks.
On top of that, InnoRoute invests more and more of its resources in developing an innovative IPv6 Router to support this vision.
InnoRoute is an SME specialized in IP/Ethernet packet processing with a special focus on QoS. InnoRoute solutions target fixed and mobile networks, especially at the network edges, where fast fiber network backbone ends in many small bandwidth channels. Its products are IP cores for packet processing and network devices. InnoRoute strengths are HW/SW development with emphasis on FPGA, firmware, and board.
