JULY 20, 2010 By Stephen Hardy -- Israeli electronics vendor Siverge Networks says that FiberHome Communications will use at least two versions of Siverge’s Griffin multifunction chips on line cards that will appear in the Chinese systems developer’s platforms for fiber-optic communication, data networking, and wireless communication applications.

JULY 20, 2010 By Stephen Hardy -- Israeli electronics vendor Siverge Networks says that FiberHome Communications will use at least two versions of Siverge’s Griffin multifunction chips on line cards that will appear in the Chinese systems developer’s platforms for fiber-optic communication, data networking, and wireless communication applications.

Nimrod Gindi, vice president of sales for EMEA & APAC at Siverge, says the devices will find their way into both existing and new platforms. While Grindi could not reveal specifics, he implied that the chips might be used in line cards that would populate multiple platforms.

The win is the second the company has announced in the Chinese market. The company earlier announced that ZTE would also use the Griffin devices.

Both companies are supplying China Mobile with systems for a packet transport network upgrade. By virtue of the two design wins, Gindi says that Siverge chips will be in approximately 55% of the systems delivered for this upgrade, which could require as many as 200,000 systems, Gindi estimated.

The wins are part of a strategy that led Siverge to focus first on the Chinese market, Gindi says. However, the company has begun to ramp up its activities in North America and Europe as well. For example, Gindi says that the company is “engaged” with three vendors in the U.S. and has at least one European customer.
