Gigabit Fiber Access Gateway chips Jun 20, 2007 12:00 AM
PMC-Sierra (Booth 1651) has announced two fiber access gateway solutions, the MSP7150 EPON/GPON gateway system on a chip (SoC), for fiber to the home (FTTH), and the MSP7140 VDSL2 Gateway SoC, for fiber to the node (FTTN). These SoCs deliver Gigabit-per-second, line-rate IPV4/V6 routing, network address translation (NAT), quality of service (QOS), encryption and a multichannel voice-over-IP (VoIP) terminal adaptor, and consume less than 1.5 Watts of power. PMC-Sierra’s fiber access gateway solutions provide OEMs and ODMs with a common platform architecture to support multiple high-speed access technologies in various geographic markets. In addition, service providers can rely on equipment based on PMC-Sierra’s multiservice platform to deliver carrier-grade IP services into the digital home. PMC-Sierra offers designs and development platforms, including BOM-cost optimized schematics, gerbers and documentation for EPON, GPON, VDSL2 and Gigabit Ethernet fiber access gateways. The MSP7140/50 devices and reference design platforms will be sampling in the third quarter.
