CyberTAN taps Teknovus' EPON ONU for home gateways

MARCH 24, 2008 -- CyberTAN Technology Inc., a Taiwanese ODM of broadband networking equipment, has integrated Teknovus' EPON chips into its new family of home gateway products designed for bringing fiber to the home, business, and multi-dwelling unit.

MARCH 24, 2008 � Teknovus (search for Teknovus), provider of GEPON chips for the deployment of triple-play services in broadband access networks, and CyberTAN Technology Inc., a Taiwanese ODM of broadband networking equipment, today announced the CyberTAN family of home gateway products for FTTH, fiber-to-the-business, and fiber-to-the-multi-dwelling unit (MDU). CyberTAN's family of home gateways are based on Teknovus' TK3715 EPON ONU, which the company claims is the lowest-power, most highly integrated 2.5/1.25-Gbit chip for Asia's FTTx markets.

CyberTAN says it developed its family of high-performance home gateways to meet the requirements of Asia's FTTx markets. All CyberTAN home gateways encompass VoIP, NAT, and a firewall with Teknovus' TK3715 EPON ONU for support of triple-play services, including VOIP, data services, IPTV, HDTV, VoD, and online gaming applications.

For single family homes and businesses, CyberTAN says it has developed the EB 112-A, which operates in bridge mode, and the EGV 114-A, which operates in bridge or router mode with 4 GbE/FE and optional support for WiFi or HomePlug.

CyberTAN offers two options for MDUs and large enterprises. The 24G Switch provides a Layer 2 management switch and 24 GbE with two module slots for Greenfields�where fiber is available throughout the building. CyberTAN's offering for combined PON/VDSL buildings supports 16/24 FE and 16/24 VDSL2, operating as a mini-DSLAM.

"The Teknovus TK3715 chip fit our requirements for low-power, built-in QoS [Quality of Service], multiple UNIs (GbE and FE), and the option for Turbo-EPON," reports Repus Hsiung, vice president of sales and marketing for CyberTAN Technology. "With Teknovus inside, we were able to rapidly design and offer a full-range of FTTx home gateway products."

"Teknovus' chips are enabling ODMs to quickly develop and sell cost-competitive home gateways that meet the differing requirements of Asia's market segments," adds Greg Caltabiano, president and CEO of Teknovus. "We are pleased to addE CyberTAN to our home gateway partnership family."
