Broadband Amplifier

SWIFT increases reach by more than 50%, doubles broadband rates on typical loops and triples the bandwidth on longer loops. Kenton's SWIFT allows cost-effective delivery of broadband to virtually every location in a carrier's footprint, and increases the number of customers to whom IPTV and other video services can be delivered.

SWIFT operates seamlessly with the Carrier's DSLAM and the subscriber's Customer Premise Equipment (CPE), providing higher bandwidth and longer reach than available with standard DSLAM equipment. SWIFT is designed to extend the reach of DSL Services (ADSL, ADSL2 and ADSL2+) without impacting voice services, and remains completely transparent with standards-based DSLAMs and CPE.

SWIFT is line powered from the existing POTS line feed eliminating the need for batteries or any additional Central Office (CO) equipment leading to rapid deployment on customer lines. SWIFT passes through the POTS service and power even during a unit failure.

SWIFT Broadband Amplifier's are designed to meet the stringent requirements for Telco outside plant specifications including ingress of water or particles and provide protection against lightning strikes and Electromagnetic Interference and eliminates any radiated emissions emanating from the Amplifier.

SWIFT Broadband Amplifier's are designed to ensure spectral compatibility with neighbouring services. They are designed to conform to spectral regulation, offering the ability to comply with the PSD requirements for each individual market. The Amplifier can be installed at existing splice points and turned up almost immediately. It is typically installed mid-span between the CO and the customer premises. SWIFT will auto-calibrate and provide optimal bandwidth and auto-correct for tip and ring roll making installation simple. The Amplifier requires no active management and allows easy troubleshooting.
