Sckipio GFast Supports Speed: End Points Matter as IoT Takes Hold
Figure 1. Remote Medical Care, Telemedicine has 44% Growth in 2016
Remote healthcare grew 44% in 2016. The Intel® Health Application Platform helps enable innovation for greater adoption and effectiveness of secure remote patient care solutions. By offering a platform that supports gathering medical data at the edge of the network, devices are enabled that gather and distribute personal medical data securely to any cloud.
The data generated by remote healthcare comes from endpoints that reach to the patient no matter where that person is located, at home, in a clinic, traveling and provide data back to a clinical professional. This new capability creates huge demand for end point transmission that is timely. This is but one example of the need for fast transmission from endpoints. Youth sports video represents another.
Sckipio, the leader in Gfast, broke new performance records at the Broadband World Forum by demonstrating over 3.1Gbps of download and 900Mbps of upload on production silicon using Gfast bonding running at 212Mhz. The Sckipio Gfast solution provides ultrafast performance. As operators and regulators position to provide end point connectivity, Sckipio is positioned to be a vital provider of technology.
Sckipio Gfast performance records were evident at the Broadband World Forum. Sckipio is pushing Gfast to outstanding speeds. Gfast solutions delivers end-to-end 212a profile bonding in a manner that is sure to be gobbled up by the industry.
Sckipio Gfast silicon runs 4Gbps of aggregate traffic on two bonded pairs of CAT-3 wiring (regular copper telephone wires). The Sckipio SCK23000 chipsets, Civica WanStaX software and the Microsemi WinPath network processor work together to provide a solution for telcos.
In the United States and Taiwan, where CAT-3 wiring with two pairs is common, this solution will offer tremendous capacity to service providers well into the 2030s. In addition, many other countries have two pairs in multi-dwelling unit (MDU) buildings that benefit from this capacity.
