CUPERTINO, Calif. and SHANGHAI, China -- Opulan Technologies today announced the industry’s most complete broadband access solutions that consist of 10Gbps EPON (Ethernet Passive Optical Networks), OpConnTM and CableTVTM SOCs and ASSPs.

By the end of first week of July, Opulan 10Gbps EPON solution has successfully passed chip-level, interoperability testing organized by China Telecom, along with other three participants. The main benchmark testing performed include MPCP discover, register and ranging, DBA, scalable OAM, and backward compatibility with 1G EPON, which are the key requirement in IEEE802.3av and China Telecom specifications. Opulan’s solution is FPGA based, and achieved downstream data flow at 9Gbps and upstream at 950Mbps under asymmetric model. This is the industry’s first carrier-scale, 10G EPON interoperability testing that is considered successful.

Simultaneously, after smooth testing Opulan’s OpConnTM 1G EPON SOCs are to be released to full production. It is a client side ONU SOC of an EPON solution. Opulan engineering team has completed thorough product and interoperability testing against IEEE802.3ah and China Telecom EPON standard. The ONU SOC integrates several important features, including embedded MIPS4kec processor for board level control and management, a powerful Ethernet switch and dynamic bandwidth allocation (DBA) engine that offers wire-speed processing, IEEE802.1ad and 802.1q Bridge, flow-based QoS classifier, and hardware-based AES-128/Triple churning encryption module.

OpConnTM can work under three common scenarios. It can be an uplink for Opulan’s CableTVTM-based, EOC solution carrying traffic from CATV broadband subscribers, which was announced separately earlier in March 2009. OpConnTM can also work to backhaul Opulan’s IPMux-based xDSL traffic aggregation. And, it can also be the final POP of a service provider connecting FTTH (fiber to the home) clients directly. With these three usages, Opulan’s ASSPs cover broadband access through all media, twisted pairs, coaxial cable and optical fiber. Opulan Technologies is the only supplier today that can offer such chip solutions in production capability.

“Achieving the above, Opulan has moved one significant step forward becoming an industry leader in 10Gbps EPON arena worldwide, as well as a complete chip solution suppler for applications from central office to subscriber homes, regardless of transmission media.” Said Dr. Zheng Liu, CEO of Opulan Technologies, “With traffic from clients are in the rapid rise due to growing broadband subscribers and the increasing popularity of digital video with HDTV in reality, 1Gbps uplink in the central office is no longer adequate in some major metro areas, making 10Gbps EPON a real demand from the market.”
