PETALUMA, Calif. -- Teknovus, a provider of semiconductors for broadband access networks, today announced a fully integrated Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) chip for Optical Line Terminals (OLTs). The TK3721 OLT chip is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3ah EPON standard, and represents the first complete silicon solution suitable for mass-market, multi-service Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) and Fiber-to-the-Business (FTTB) deployments.

Lowell D. Lamb, Teknovus Vice President of Marketing, states, "Until the introduction of the TK3721, designing an OLT required the use of expensive, discrete components. Development cycles were long, performance and port densities were low, while cost and power consumption were high. The TK3721 attacks these issues head-on and transforms IEEE EPON platforms into carrier-class solutions."

"The level of integration in the Teknovus EPON chips is remarkable," says Kiyotaka Shikata, Manager of Product Development for Fujitsu Access. "It solves a lot of problems for us."
