Leading semiconductor solutions provider
) recently announced that its end-to-end Ethernet Passive Optical
Networking (EPON) Optical Network Units (ONU) and Optical Line
Terminals (OLT) chipsets are ready to be deployed in DPoE 1.0
The ONU and OLT chipsets in combination with Broadcom's DML
software facilitate the cable operators to migrate their networks
from 1Gbps to 10Gbps. The 1G EPON and 10G EPON access
technologies are well suited for the demanding business and
mobile backhaul services as they offer the required bandwidth,
scale and operability features. Broadcom-based EPON networks
support 1 Gbps and 2 Gbps speeds simultaneously; thereby
supporting rollout of new services without network disturbance.
These chipsets enable cable multi-system operators (MSOs) to
offer new fiber-based business services.
Broadcom also collaborated with CableLabs, MSOs and industry
Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to create a standard to
achieve full vendor and equipment interoperability. Broadcom, in
association with other cable labs and OEMS, contributed to the
DPoE standard to make it widely available in the market.
Based in Irvine, California, Broadcom is engaged in designing and
marketing semiconductor components of network voice, video, and
data traffic for various applications. The company continues to
drive innovation and engineering excellence across a broad range
of communication end markets to help its customers enhance device
performance and overall efficiency.
