Broadcom introduces new fiber access device series for broadband connectivity
Oct 28, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Broadcom Corporation, a provider of semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, has introduced BCM6838x Series, a new fiber access series of devices for broadband connectivity in the home.
The new series of SoCs are the industry's most integrated solutions for Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPON) and Gigabit Passive Optical Networks (GPON), delivering high-speed Internet, TV and telecommunications.
As the fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) access market continues to add subscribers around the world, Broadcom has engineered a low power residential solution to reduce power consumption and system cost. The high level of integration in Broadcom's BCM6838x Series provides system vendors with a cost-effective solution to implement EPON and GPON home gateway units (HGU) and single family unit (SFU) with a single chip at the lowest system cost.
"Fiber access networks today must effectively deliver the resilient quality and high levels of service associated with PON networks while integrating a wide range of broadband technologies-all without burdening OEMs and operators with additional costs," said Greg Fischer, Broadcom vice president and General Manager for Broadband Carrier Access. "Broadcom's new series of PON SoCs offer unparalleled connectivity and service delivery framework for fiber access networks."
Key features of the BCM6838x Series include: fourth generation passive optical networking processor builds on Broadcom's proven broadband hardware and software architecture; highest level of integration includes Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) PHYs, USB, SLAC, SIM card controller and a single power supply; single-band or concurrent dual-band Wi-Fi acceleration; unified software environment across all Broadcom xDSL/EPON/GPON products; enables lowest cost bill of materials; two-layer PCB; and proven software environment with more than 50 million CPE's deployed per year.
