CommScope outfits in-home GPON gateway with Wi-Fi 6 capabilities

Jan. 11, 2021
The company says the improved connectivity of the NVG578LX will deliver faster broadband around the home with Wi-Fi 6 and 2.5 Gbps Ethernet WAN/LAN (switchable) support.

CommScope announced it is expanding its Wi-Fi 6 home network gateway offering with the release of its NVG578LX 2.5G GPON Wi-Fi 6 residential gateway.

The NVG578LX GPON home network gateway provides gigabit speeds for the delivery of managed voice, video and data services. The improved connectivity of the NVG578LX will deliver faster performance around the home with Wi-Fi 6 and 2.5 Gbps Ethernet WAN/LAN (switchable) support, says the company.

“With more of us working and learning from home, consumers are demanding faster speeds and improved Wi-Fi performance,” observes German Iaryczower, Senior Vice President, Broadband Home Solutions, CommScope. “This high performance Wi-Fi 6 residential gateway gives service providers a cost-effective solution to deliver the in-home connectivity experience their customers need.”

The company says its NVG578 series of advanced gateways for the PON family of optical networking standards is especially geared to deliver managed voice, video, data and IoT services, with the previously released NVG578SX providing up to 10 Gbps symmetrical broadband capability. For its part, the NVG578LX delivers high-speed broadband services via on-board GPON optics up to 2.5 Gbps downstream into the home and 1.25 Gbps upstream.

The NVG578LX gateway enables reliable, single-platform delivery of voice-over-IP, data and streaming broadcast-quality video. This connectivity is complemented by the unit's equally high-speed LAN interfaces, including:

  • One 2.5G Ethernet WAN/LAN port, three 1G Ethernet LAN ports
  • Dual-band Wi-Fi 6
  • 2.4 GHz 3x3 802.11ax
  • 5 GHz 4x4 802.11ax

Recently, the NVG578LX gateway was deployed by Ziply Fiber as part of the service provider’s gigabit broadband with Wi-Fi 6 roll-out. The NVG578LX gateway may be complemented with CommScope's X5 Wi-Fi Extenders to create a mesh Wi-Fi solution to deliver high-performance Wi-Fi in even the far corners of a home, the company says.
