UK’s Kenton Group set to launch ‘Velocity Lite’ – ultrafast broadband


UK based Kenton Group, one of Europe’s fastest growing network access specialists, has launched its new ultrafast broadband access solution offering speeds of up to 320Mb over bonded Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC).

Velocity Lite – on show for the first time at Broadband World Forum in London later this month – offers Service Providers a cost effective and resilient alternative to fibre when delivering ultrafast data access to customers.


The solution combines four very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line 2 (VDSL2) FTTC circuits using industry standard Multi Link PPP (MLPPP) bonding, which allows dynamic addition and removal of individual links and low overheads minimising bandwidth wastage. This enables areas previously deemed unsuitable or too expensive due to the current footprint and high cost of Fibre to the Premises solutions to have ultrafast connectivity.

“We are committed to delivering innovative products that offer reliability and a low total cost of ownership to our customers,” said Lee Palmer, Commercial Director at The Kenton Group. “With the Velocity Lite, we can provide customers ultrafast data access of speeds up to 320Mb, enabling them to harness the benefits of the cloud and to prioritise critical data and services with true Quality of Service.”

Kenton’s Velocity Lite utilises four VDSL2+ modems to provide customers with a high-performance solution which has passed BT’s conformance testing for connection to the FTTC network. This allows exceptionally fast deployment compared to traditional fibre delivery.

Palmer added: “Many businesses now need to enhance the speed and resilience of their data services because of their dependency on critical cloud based services. The Velocity Lite can help them deliver this.”

The Velocity Lite has been designed to work across multiple market sectors, including for carriers, ISPs and local governments. Typical applications for the Velocity Lite include high speed internet access, streaming of video and music, gaming, TV over Wi-Fi, a residential Wi-Fi access point, small cell backhaul and a fixed line and mobile resilient network router.

The Kenton Group continues to affirm itself as one of Europe’s fastest growing network access specialists with a client portfolio that includes BT, TalkTalk Business and Virgin Media. The Group will be attending Broadband World Forum at ExCeL London, 20-22 October, alongside technology partner SmartRG to showcase a range of network access solutions for service providers around the globe.
