KT has developed the World’s First Gigabit Speed capable of running in Every LAN Environment - 2-par LAN Gigabit Internet
06/14/2016 | By Netmanias (tech@netmanias.com)

  • This is the world’s first time internet speeds have been able to hit 1 Gbps over a 2 pairs wire connection.
  • Without laying down new wire, 1Gbps internet is now possible cost effectively.
  • This new technology can also be applied rapidly overseas, allowing telecom companies around the globe to improve the capabilities of existing infrastructure.

On June 7th, kt (CEO Hwang Chang-gyu, kt.com) unveiled the world’s first 1Gbps internet solution, which can be applied to all customers currently on 2 pairs wire internet connection.

 

In collaboration with local small and medium enterprises, kt has been able to develop new technology which improves the modulation between internet exchange points and subscribers, roughly doubling internet speed.

 

Through this new solution kt can offer customers high speed internet, even while living in areas without 4 pairs wire or fiber to the home.

Currently 39% are using ultrahigh speed internet in a LAN environment, and some of these customers who are in condo building only have 2 pairs wire connections, which has made it impossible up until now to get 1gbps internet speeds.

 

With the 2 Pairs Wire Giga Internet Solution, existing infrastructure can be utilized to improve speed. This is much more cost effective and cable does not need to be laid down or replaced.

 

kt Chief Technology Officer Lee Dong-myun said “We are the first in the world to develop GiGA Internet with GiGA Wire, which will help to strengthen our reputation as a IT powerhouse nation. We will continue to develop cutting-edge wired and wireless technologies in order to lead the era of 5G.”

 

In February of this year, the GiGA Wire technology was exported to Spain and Turkey in February. It is expected that this technology will continue to contribute to the improvement of telecommunications infrastructure globally.

Additional Information:

 

1. LAN Cable: Unshielded Twisted Pair Cable, connects on both ends with a RJ-45 connector. However the communications standard and the number of cables transmitting data can affect the transmission rate.

 

2. 2 pairs wire: 4 strands wires, data transmission via cable, is generally 100Mbps with a maximum speed of 500Mbps. And most buildings constructed before the year 2000, were wired with 2 pairs wire.

 

3. GiGA Wire: can provide internet speed up to 600Mbps using lines built for phone usage. This is a specialized solution for areas in which laying fiber-optic cable is difficult.

 

※ GiGA Wire Technology Intro.

 

ㅇOverview: GiGA Wire solution can provide high speed internet at premises legacy cable where fiber is not available. Based on ITU-T G.hn standard, this technology is composed of crosstalk mitigation and auto pairing on the bundle or 2 pair wire cable connected to multiple users. Customers can expect 5 times faster internet speed without any construction.

ㅇStandards: ITU-T G.996x (G.hn)

ㅇDeployment plan: In 2013, KT introduced world’s first GiGA Wire to customers which allows speeds up to 600Mbps, and second half of 2016 will release GiGA Wire 2.0 speeds of up to 1Gbps.

ㅇApplication: GiGA Wire can be placed at the inside of building or historical site which are difficult to install new wire or fiber optic cable.
