VDSL Gateway at CES

As I’m still wrapping up coverage of the products and demos from CES, here’s a quick look at Motorola’s VDSL2+ gateway. Per my earlier conversation with Alan Lefkof, it looks like this will be a big year for upgrades from ADSL to VDSL. The gateway shown here (Motorola Netopia 7000 series) can reach throughput levels up to 100 Mbps and includes four Ethernet ports, two ports for VoIP and a POTS back-up port.

Interestingly, a consumer receiving TV over DSL needs both a set-top and a modem/gateway for access (cable TV only requires a set-top), with a lot of the quality of service (QoS) functions taking place on the gateway device. In other words, the gateway picks up a lot of the slack in making it possible for operators to deliver voice, video and data simultaneously without any service degradation.
