Xelerated Tackles GPON

STOCKHOLM -- Xelerated, the global leader in field-proven Carrier Ethernet ASSP-based chipsets, today announced a new reference design for GPON. Xelerated’s new HX300 family of network processor units (NPUs) and Ethernet switches can now interoperate with Broadlight’s BL3458 controller. The fully integrated GPON solution enables carriers to deploy revenue-generating services in the access network while reducing costs, increasing time-to-market and ultimately enabling mass volume deployment.

The new solution introduces feature flexibility into the first mile, extending the lifetime of the network by 10 to 15 years. This future-proofs the Carrier FTTx build-outs and enables vendor interoperability, which is a challenge today for many carriers. In addition, software support has been added for GPON to facilitate smooth integration for the network equipment vendor.

“The GPON OLT market is expected to show tremendous growth over the next few years as carriers in North America and Europe build out GPON infrastructure. The combined Xelerated/Broadlight OLT solution provides a unique combination of high integration and feature flexibility,” said Bob Wheeler, senior analyst at The Linley Group. “This solution drives down cost for the network equipment vendor while allowing carriers to benefit from programmability in the access network – ultimately providing for easier and more rapid introduction of new services.”
