DASAN’s gigabit per second EPON solution, based on PMC-Sierra’s FTTH chip set using its GigaPASS™ architecture, is capable of delivering premium-grade triple-play services – voice, data and video – to Korea’s growing FTTH subscriber base.

DASAN Networks expects the number of subscribers under this deployment to reach 800,000 in the 2007 calendar year.

“Korea has consistently been a leader in deploying broadband access technologies and they now join Japan in selecting PMC-Sierra-based EPON FTTH technology for widespread deployment,” said Victor Vaisleib, general manager of the FTTH Business Unit at PMC-Sierra. “To be chosen for deployment in Seoul, the nation’s capital, is a significant honor. This accomplishment solidifies our position as the worldwide leader in FTTH silicon.”
