Infineon increases bandwidth for VDSL
Infineon combines the modern network with the normal telephone cable: three new chips increase the bandwidth for the VDSL standard to 25 Mbit/s. The VDSL-over-Ethernet chipset, which contains the chips 10BaseS, VDSL-A and VDSL-L, can be easily integrated into switching systems or DSL adapters.
However, the maximum range is only around 1000 meters, which is why For example, this technology can only be used for the inexpensive and fast connection of two nearby company networks. Another advantage is that both networks can be connected with each other with this method without disturbing existing ISDN and ADSL connections, so they can continue to be used without restrictions. Manufacturers such as Cisco, D-Link, Ericsson and Fujitsu have already announced the use of the 'VDSL-over-Ehternet' chipset.
