The V5700 is Pace’s high-end VDSL2 Gateway, targeted for high-speed Internet services and triple-play (data, voice and IPTV). It is designed as a flexible platform, which can host a range of applications and services.
The built-in IEEE 802.11n wireless interface provides coverage and high performance for the customer environment. An optional second Wi-Fi radio can be used for video distribution in the home. Four Gigabit Ethernet interfaces are provided to connect PCs, set-top boxes and other consumer devices. Using the three USB host interfaces, the gateway can be equipped with 3G backup, hard drives for media storage, ZigBee dongles and other accessories to extend functionality. Analogue telephones can be connected through the two FXS interfaces while DECT phones can connect directly to the built DECT/CAT-iq base station.
All of this is controlled by Pace’s Helium gateway software, a unified software stack, which provides secure networking functions, a VoIP PBX as well as a media centre.
The V5700 is equipped with advanced TR-069 management and is interoperable with major ACSs, as well as other methods of configuration via a user friendly GUI, TFTP or FTP. This enables operators to easily update the firmware image or configuration data.
