The purpose of the Proof of Concept testing in the Telecom’s Network Integration Laboratory (NIL) is to assist customer premises equipment vendors and service providers to:
- Validate the compatibility of selected modems and residential gateways (RGWs) against the requirements of WVS
- Identify suitable modems and residential gateways for WVS
- As an optional step, test the backward compatibility of the modems/gateways with ADSL2+
Through trialling, the project will reduce risk, fill knowledge gaps and increase likelihood of successful delivery.
