Paradyne this week launched its Remote Broadband Access Concentrator (BAC) featuring ADSL2+ with shipments underway.

The Remote BAC is the industry’s first line-powered access platform to deliver ADSL2+, the breakthrough advancement that provides up to 29Mbps of throughput over the existing telephone wireline infrastructure. In addition, the Remote BAC can be configured with Paradyne’s patented ReachDSL as well as standards-based SHDSL.
