Portugal as a technology hub. Nuno Monteiro at Altice Labs is ready to ship CPEs, 16 port G.fast DSLAMs, and single port “fiber range extenders.” They are working on a 24 port DSLAM as well, using Sckipio chips. The single port has a natural application when you can bring fiber close (<200 meters) and want to save time and the expense of running fiber all the way. The extender can be configured very simply or with full management capability.
They are seeing enough demand for coax connectivity they offer a unit with both coax and twisted pair interfaces. They also offer dual coax outputs, one for a set top and one for a router. They have a Yang-based management system already widely in use.
