Comtrend Picks BroadLight's GPON

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- BroadLight, the leading supplier of GPON semiconductors and software, today announced that Comtrend Corporation has selected its BL2348 System-on Chip (SoC) for a GPON residential gateway (RG) that connects the home network directly to the access network. This new generation of GPON equipment enables global leaders such as Comtrend to deliver the cost and performance targets needed to deploy triple play services in volume.

“Comtrend joins the growing list of equipment companies that are combining the modem and router into a single RG device,” said Raanan Gewirtzman, CEO of BroadLight. “This type of integration took place in the DSL and cable modem industries and we are seeing similar adoption of high-performance RG devices in the GPON market as the cost comes down and performance goes up.”
