Homes in the UK could be set to enjoy exponentially faster broadband capabilities in the coming years if a new partnership from CityFibre delivers on its promise.
The high-speed fibre operator has announced a team-up with Calix to deploy the world's first Software Defined Access (SDA) operating system across its network, ISP Review reports.
According to the ISP, this could allow it to offer speeds of up to 10Gbps to every home on its network, with the potential to increase this even further to 100Gbps in the future.
Chief executive of CityFibre Greg Mesch said that in Calix, the firm is joining forces with a "like-minded" innovator that is pushing the boundaries of what is possible with fibre-only infrastructure.
"The ability to scale services up to 100Gbps, while driving customer experience to new levels, highlights the inadequacies of connections that are passed off as fibre today," Mr Mesch added.
"It also shows that not all full fibre networks are equal and that, as an alternative network builder, CityFibre’s commitment to the UK’s digital future goes far beyond simply putting fibre in the ground."
Executive vice-president of field operations at Calix Michael Weening also explained that with his company's AXOS technology, CityFibre will be able to deliver new products and features more rapidly and help "change the UK's broadband market forever".
