The right (straight) cable allows remarkable choices. Bill Bittencourt startled the G.fast Summit with new results from the lab and the field. They said it couldn't be done, but Calix customers are proving it is possible to use multiple DSLAMs. Instead of being limited to 16-24 G.fast customers, that can be doubled and possibly tripled. In early testing, the second DSLAM resulted in less than a 2% loss. Many North American buildings have straight cable – otherwise known as CAT1 or “station wiring” – from a distribution point to each unit. Geoff Burke explains, "In essence, what this means is that typical MDUs have insulated wiring from the Distribution Point to the unit, which greatly minimizes cross talk and loss.
