FEBRUARY 10, 2009 -- Tailyn Communication Co. of Taiwan has chosen Wintegra's (search Lightwave for Wintegra) new Carrier Ethernet processor, the WinIP3, for its next generation of GPON products. Tailyn's new platform is targeted at GPON multi-dwelling unit (MDU) applications.
This new platform from Tailyn takes advantage of the additional performance and power efficient architecture Wintegra's new processor provides, according to the device manufacturer. The new IC also lowers bill of material. The new Wintegra device has 2.5-Gbps interfaces for glueless connection to GPON PHYs as well as 10-Gbps performance to aggregate multiple GPON data streams.
Tailyn plans to incorporate Wintegra's Carrier Ethernet control path and data path software to provide the feature set needed to support important GPON service offerings such as IPTV. Wintegra says its software is field upgradeable, which will enable Tailyn's system to be "future proofed" without requiring truck rolls, further reducing system deployment and maintenance costs.
Tailyn's new GPON MDU platform will become available in late 2009.
