SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- PMC-Sierra, Inc. (Nasdaq:PMCS) today announced the availability of a Gigabit-speed, multi-service fiber access gateway device with an integrated ITU-T G.984 GPON interface. The MSP7160 integrates all of the functionality required for a GPON residential gateway, and leverages PMC-Sierra’s proven GPON interoperability and software layers to improve performance and reduce OEM time-to-market and development costs. The availability of this new device will enable carriers to expand HD video service offerings to consumers through the mass deployment of high bandwidth broadband, and support necessary enhancements to applications, such as video and picture sharing, P2P and data storage.

The MSP7160 delivers gigabit-per-second IPv4 or IPv6 routing, Network Address Translation (NAT) and Quality of Service (QoS) features. It includes integrated multi-channel VoIP terminal adapter capabilities, GPON MAC and SERDES functions with proven interoperability. As the newest addition to the industry’s most complete fiber access gateway portfolio, the MSP7160 is also software compatible with PMC-Sierra’s other MSP7100 family devices.

“Based on our successful IEEE EPON deployments in Asia, PMC-Sierra is the unquestioned market leader in high volume FTTH deployments, and this new integrated GPON residential gateway solution will help accelerate the transition to similar high volume deployments of the GPON ITU standard,” said Victor Vaisleib, vice president and general manager of the FTTH Business Unit at PMC-Sierra. “Using our broad portfolio of software-compatible fiber access gateways, our customers can leverage their development efforts to provide next-generation access gateway products for any carrier in the world.”
