WASHINGTON, June 7, 2010 – Alcatel-Lucent recently announced that its research division, Bell Labs, has modified existing DSL technology to achieve 300 mbps downstream speeds. This new method employs deployed DSL lines and simply creates a new phantom channel which facilitates the increased speeds.  The technology allows for 100 mbps per 1 km with a maximum of 400 meters.

“We often think of the role innovation plays in generating technologies of the future, but DSL Phantom Mode is a prime example of the role innovation can play in creating a future for existing solutions and injecting them with a new source of value,” said Gee Rittenhouse, head of Research for Bell Labs. “What makes DSL Phantom Mode such an important breakthrough is that it combines cutting-edge technology with an attractive business model that will open up entirely new commercial opportunities for service providers, enabling them in particular, to offer the latest broadband IP-based services using existing network infrastructure.”
