At ANGA COM in Cologne, Germany, German technology startup GiaX is introducing two additions to its Distributed Access Architecture product portfolio, the ES1440-BK and the HelEOS Switch Node. The ES1440-BK is a four-port 10G and four-port 2.5G Ethernet switch. The HelEOS Switch Node is a HelEOS gateway with an integrated ES1440-BK switch. The switch node is intended to let cable operators deploy the company's HelEOS solution as a virtual node split solution. Both products are now available for the BK network architecture.

Prior to the introduction of the Switch Node, cable operators could use the HelEOS solution for a single service only, typically Distributed Access Architectures (DAA), mobile backhaul, fiber-to-the-business or distributed PON. By using the Switch Node, cable operators can now use the HelEOS solution for multiple services at once The HelEOS network system is designed to deliver 10 Gbps symmetrical throughput over HFC infrastructure and uses MaxLinear's (NYSE:MXL) MxL85110 Virtual Fiber broadband modem system on chip (SoC).

"Deploying fiber for re-segmentation purposes can be a serious capex burden as this is often associated with digging into the ground, which tends to be labor intensive," said Jorg Hellwig, CEO and founder of GiaX. "At GiaX we have developed an innovative solution, HelEOS, that allows cable operators to re-use the existing coax network, re-energizing that network to offer standard-based 10G Ethernet backhaul capabilities for deployment of DAA architectures, whilst having the flexibility to adapt to new requirements in the future such as FDX. The HelEOS Switch Node is the latest addition to the HelEOS solution, making HelEOS ready for use in cable networks all over the world."
