New product will boost DSL range, data speed and stability beginning in 2009

Regensburg / Ebermannstadt, Germany – August 27, 2008. Northern Bavarian technology company Broadband United has just launched development of its new product IFC Interconnect. Once released in the first quarter of 2009, IFC Interconnect will significantly improve the range, data speed and stability of the symmetrical DSL (SHDSL) service used by business customers. In 2009, Broadband United also plans to develop similar products for ADSL, ADSL2+ and VDSL2. Products from Broadband United will help network operators and DSL providers to offer full coverage in all areas with high data speed and stability. Broadband United intends to target the growing worldwide DSL market as quickly and comprehensively as possible and is seeking additional investors to support this objective.

Business customers with SHDSL to benefit first
All of the products from Broadband United are based on interference cancellation (IFC) technology. The basic principle involves measuring interference on telephone lines which is then canceled out by injecting compensation signals computed in real time. DSL signals can be transmitted much more effectively over lines that are optimized in this manner. “IFC technology has already proven its practical value during multiple field trials”, said Georg Herrmann, managing director of Broadband United who is in charge of technology for the company. “We have now begun product development for IFC Interconnect. Beginning in the first quarter of 2009, we will target providers of symmetrical DSL (SHDSL) for business customers with this first product based on IFC technology. In practical tests, we have been able to boost transmission speeds for SHDSL by up to 50% and increase the range and cable usage by up to 40%.”

Better ADSL, ADSL2+ and VDSL2 for private customers
In 2009, Broadband United plans to begin developing additional products. IFC Interconnect for business customers will be followed by IFC Subscriber for private customers. IFC Subscriber will significantly improve the availability and quality of ADSL, ADSL2+ and VDSL2. This will help large network operators and DSL providers to eliminate holes in DSL coverage. For IFC Subscriber, a specially developed chip will make it possible to mass-produce IFC technology in a cost-effective manner. Due to the high cost expected to develop this application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), Broadband United is currently seeking investors for this project.

Venture capital firms and partner companies for a growing market
“The DSL market is growing around the world with about 200 million lines now in place. By 2012, all market researchers are forecasting at least 500 million lines”, said Andreas Bernhardt, managing partner of Broadband United who is in charge of sales, marketing and finance. “If we wish to quickly exploit the full potential of this market, we need to bring in a venture capital firm or additional established partner companies.” Broadband United’s existing partners are the Northern Bavarian companies Vierling Communications, IK-T and iAd as well as the Institute for Information Transmission (LIT) at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.

Business plan jury and private customers impressed
“An independent panel of entrepreneurs and investors awarded us first place in the Northern Bavarian Business Plan Competition 2008 a few weeks ago, suggesting that we are on the right path with our idea”, noted Andreas Bernhardt. “We have also received impressive feedback from various private DSL customers: In many areas, no DSL or only low-speed DSL is available. Many users are eagerly awaiting the day when IFC is ready for the mass market.”

About Broadband United
Broadband United GmbH (BroadU) is a young and innovative company that is working to develop products to improve the transmission properties of traditional telephone cables used in the local loop. For example, solutions from BroadU can help telephone companies to significantly improve the range, data speed and stability of DSL signals. All of the solutions from BroadU are based on interference cancellation (IFC) technology. IFC was developed by Vierling Communications GmbH in Ebermannstadt, IK-T GbR in Regensburg and the Institute for Information Transmission in Erlangen. Current IFC prototypes can reduce crosstalk interference on telephone cables by up to 20 dB. For DSL signals, this means up to 50% faster transmission speeds and up to 40% more range and cable usage. Field tests performed at major European network operators have confirmed these figures. For additional information, please visit our website:
