Verizon Communications and Calix have achieved downlink transmission speeds of 34Gbps over the telco’s Next-Generation Passive Optical Network 2 (NG-PON2) infrastructure. The advanced download speed was achieved at the Verizon Innovation Center in Waltham, Massachusetts.
TeleGeography notes that Verizon and Calix previously trialled NG-PON2 services in Tampa, Florida in October 2018, notching download speeds of 8Gbps.
TJ Fox, Senior Vice President and President of Verizon Business Markets, commented: ‘We know how important connectivity is to small and mid-size businesses. These advances will deliver the promise of the cloud for our customers and bring them technology at parity to what previously was only in reach for large enterprises.’
