MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Demonstrating superior product execution, BroadLight today announced that it has successfully sampled the BL2000 GPON system-on-chip solution. The BL2000 system-on-chip completes BroadLight’s End-to-End GPON product offering which also includes PONmaker software and the BL3000 OLT MAC. The company will be demonstrating working GPON systems at the Fiber Optics Expo in Japan on January 18-20 in booth #55-7 and also in a private suite (TIME24 bldg). BroadLight executives will also be participating on two GPON speaking panels at the show.

“As the first company to successful sample a GPON controller, BroadLight is taking the lead in a rapidly growing market that is predicted to be the largest PON growth segment in the next few years,” said Andy Vought, CEO of BroadLight. “Based on this flawless product execution, customers can be confident that BroadLight will deliver quality-tested GPON products on-time to meet the needs of their demanding service provider customers.”

“Infonetics Research predicts that in 2008 GPON revenues will exceed those of competing BPON and EPON solutions in North America and worldwide,” said Michael Howard, Principal Analyst and Co-Founder of Infonetics Research. “BroadLight is the first vendor we’ve seen to sample a GPON solution and this should help put them in a position to be a significant competitor for the GPON contracts that are currently under development.”

“BroadLight’s GPON customer Askey added “This is a major milestone in the GPON industry and we are pleased to that we chose BroadLight as our supplier,” said Arthur Lie, Senior Marketing Manager of Askey Computer. “All indicators point to GPON being very successful in the market and we look forward to bringing our product to market very quickly.”
