CUPERTINO, Calif. -- iamba Networks, a leading provider of Gigabit Passive Optical Networking (GPON) solutions and Wintegra Inc., a leading provider of silicon and software for Broadband Access Aggregation solutions, today announced collaboration on the development of a GPON solution for Multiple Dwelling Units (MDUs).

iamba's iSN1000D GPON SoC will be tightly integrated with Wintegra's WinArrow2 product family creating a high-end solution for GPON MDU application for VDSL2 end users. Standardized by ITU, VDSL2 has been designed to provide operators and carriers the flexibility to gradually and cost-effectively upgrade existing DSL infrastructure while supporting the deployment of triple play services. The MDU market in 2010 is going to be 15% of the total ONU ports deployed that year, serving a very large number of GPON subscribers who live in large apartment buildings around the globe, according to Infonetics Research.

The joint solution provides superior QoS on both the downstream and upstream, full compliance with the DSL Forum technical spec, WT-156 and full programmability and future proofing through the Wintegra WinArrow2 NPU architecture. Additional benefits of the jointly developed product include covering a range of port densities from as few as 8 ports and up to 48 ports, WinArrow's rich software offering, including extensive set of data path and control path stacks, and iamba's end-to-end GPON software offering, including OMCI management stack.

"iamba's products are optimized for various markets and we believe there is a market need for a solution that provides flexibility that the operators require while also delivering the service customers demand. A jointly developed product from iamba and Wintegra enables us to deliver a solution that address the needs of both," said John Mein, VP of Sales and Marketing, iamba Networks.
