PMC-Sierra Launches 10G-EPON SoCs
PMC's ONU devices feature the industry's most advanced integration to reduce system cost and power. Integrated synchronization functions enable backhauling of mobile networks over 10G-EPON, eliminating the need for external circuitry. Integrated power-saving modes reduce ONU power consumption by more than 50 percent, enabling energy-efficient networks.
"Carriers continue to seek ways to meet the demand for enhanced triple-play services and increased bandwidth, and 10G-EPON provides the answer with high reliability and low operational expenses," said Ofer Bar-Or, vice president and general manager of PMC's Fibre to the Home Division. "As the market segment leader, PMC is paving the way for higher bandwidth networks at low power and high QoS. Our highly integrated SoCs allow easy migration from EPON and GPON to 10G-EPON."
