The rising need to access high-definition video streams, including on-demand
and OTT content, on multiple screens leads to an ever growing demand for
bandwidth that is not always available to all consumers on existing copper

HYBRIDGE addresses this demand by combining xDSL and LTE WAN, which enables
aggregated bandwidths reaching up to 200 Mbps at home.

HYBRIDGE is a high-end VDSL gateway that includes the Lantiq DSLTE™ technology
– based on the latest AnyWan™ GRX300 Network processor family. On this
platform, the Netgem Quattuor advanced LTE mobile hotspot can be docked to
provide the additional bandwidth.

Key benefits

  oBandwidth up to 200 Mbps downstream and up to 100 Mbps upstream: With
    HYBRIDGE, carriers can offer up to 200 Mbps aggregated download throughput
    – and 100 Mbps aggregated upload throughput - with flawless
    Quality-of-Service (QoS) and minimum investment, controlled by a software
    based traffic management suite
  oEfficient multiscreen content delivery everywhere: The aggregated DSL and
    LTE WAN bandwidth enables several HD video streams simultaneously in any
    location, even in areas where the wire line service is ADSL only, not
    VDSL. In addition HYBRIDGE offers Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports and Dual Band
    Concurrent 2.4GHz + 5GHz Wi-Fi to support fluid distribution of the
    content to multiple devices in the Home.
  oA modular and versatile platform enabling new fixed / mobile internet
    bundles:  as a special feature, the LTE module can be separated from the
    Gateway and can be used as a stand-alone mobile LTE Hotspot. With a single
    product and subscription pack, operators' customers can benefit both from
    an ultra-fast broadband at home and from the best mobile internet when
