NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- Conexant Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CNXT), a worldwide leader in semiconductor solutions for broadband communications, enterprise networks and the digital home, marked its entry into the fiber access market with its integrated Xenon system-on-a-chip (SoC) solution. The device is targeted at optical network terminals (ONTs) on the client-side of broadband passive optical networks (BPONs). PON networks provide cost-effective, high-speed "last mile"broadbandconnections to homes and businesses over a fiber optic cable, and are an evolutionary step from coaxial cable or copper-based connectivity solutions.TheXenon system solution can also be used in conjunction with Conexant's AccelityVDSL/VDSL2 chipset to provide fiber-to-the-neighborhood (FTTN), enabling the cost-effective delivery of triple-play voice, video and data services. Xenon is the first in a family of planned devices for PON networks, and is currently being deployed by service providers worldwide.

   "We have leveraged our system design expertise and technical leadership position in DSL to deliver the world's most integrated and lowest system cost broadband passive optical network semiconductor solution," said Akram Atallah, vice president and general manager of Broadband Access for Conexant. "PON provides broadband network operators with a next-generation solution for the delivery of bandwidth-intensive, voice, video and data services to the home.Further, our Xenon PON device can be used with our VDSL chipsets to provide operators with an economical, high-performance solution that allows them to quickly deliver products to a larger, existing subscriber base."
