As organizations leverage disruptive technologies, such as IoT and smart cities, their wireless and fiber infrastructures must support computing bandwidth demand in real time. And it’s the new technologies coming about that will dramatically improve existing wireless and fiber infrastructures by increasing data speeds, enabling faster video downloads, lowering latencies, and offering enhanced levels of security and reliability.

Today, leading provider of fiber optic networking systems, XKL, introduced its new Wi-Fi infrastructure solution that boosts capacity and distance for fiber to Wi-Fi networks. The company’s new Wi-Fi fiber-to-wireless hybrid solution is a special application of XKL’s DQT10 series, and enables companies, municipalities and other organizations that deploy Wi-Fi networks to extend their reach up to 80km with up to 36 wireless access points per 1RU system, enabling growth and enhanced flexibility.

“Data growth is hitting record levels and networks must be prepared to accommodate,” comments Chad Lamb, XKL’s Chief Systems Architect. “XKL focuses on driving results for our customers through personalized customer engagement and our highly flexible suite of products. With our new Wi-Fi enhancement solution, we prepare organizations to be data-driven, and fortify their networks to adapt to today’s technologies, while paving the way for future innovations.”

As a Layer 1 device, the DQT10 is based on XKL’s FlexArc architecture, which enables it to act as a distribution hub for wireless applications, with MIMO access points supporting 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless networks. This increases distance from a traditional 10km-reach Ethernet implementation to an 80km-reach, providing 10GE (or soft-configurable 1GE) at each wireless access point, as well as increased flexibility and efficiencies across metro and regional wireless networks.
