metanoiaWorking with Huawei. Metanoia, also known as Yi Chung, stays under the radar but they continue active in technical fora. They have participated in the UNH-BBF plugfests and have appeared occasionally at trade shows. As you can see from the spec sheets below, their chips are aimed at the mainstream G.fast market, They worked with Soft At Home on an SFP reference design. 

They also have been filing patents. These are by Chun-che Chang 

12/17/15 - 20150365131 - Crosstalk management for ofdm communication systems in power efficient transmission mode
In the present disclosure, several techniques are proposed to estimate the worst-case crosstalk noise and use it for bit-loading and SRA calculations so that fluctuating crosstalk when PET mode is enabled does not lead to system instability. One of the proposed techniques involves strategically placing some marker tones in the...

212 GHz and cDTA are soon shipping from Adtran. True gigabit is here. Sales takeoff is almost in sight, probably Q1 2018.
Australia confirms 1M, AT&T is ready to ramp, DT finally is moving. Omantel and Telkom South Africa are now on the map. Almost all telcos are now choosing G.fast for large buildings when they don't go FTTH. MNet Cologne and Chunghwa Taiwan have changed from fiber all the way to G.fast in the basement.

212 MHz and cDTA Are Ready: Adtran http://bit.ly/GF212cDTA
Frank Miller of Century: G.fast Will be Important to Us http://bit.ly/GFCentury

Carl Russo: Since 2007, I've Been Turning Calix Into a Software Company http://bit.ly/CalixSDN

Adtran Chosen for Australia nbn Fiber to the curb. http://bit.ly/GFnabAus

nbn looking to a million lines. This one is big. Adtran is on a roll, with DT & AT&T also looking good for 2018.

1,400,000,000 In The Works. 1.4 Gigabits http://bit.ly/GF14Gig
South Africa & Connecticut Go Nokia http://bit.ly/SouthAF
