MAY 24, 2010 -- TECOM, a broadband equipment manufacturer based in Taiwan, has selected PMC-Sierra’s systems for its new GPON Optical Network Terminal (ONT) designs. TECOM’s Mini GPON Gigabit ONT is built around PMC-Sierra’s PAS7400 SoC and targets residential and SOHO deployments that require maximum performance, high quality of service, and small form factors.

MAY 24, 2010 -- TECOM, a broadband equipment manufacturer based in Taiwan, has selected PMC-Sierra’s systems for its new GPON Optical Network Terminal (ONT) designs. TECOM’s Mini GPON Gigabit ONT is built around PMC-Sierra’s PAS7400 SoC and targets residential and SOHO deployments that require maximum performance, high quality of service, and small form factors.

“Our products must provide the highest quality of service at GbE speeds and fit into small form factor designs in order to meet European customers’ requirements,” says Kevin Shen, director of product line management, TECOM. “TECOM selected
PMC-Sierra’s field-proven GPON ONT SoC and OMCI software because it is the best solution for these requirements, and it allowed us to get a complete product to market quickly. TECOM’s Mini GPON Gigabit ONT provides multiple high-quality data, voice and video applications to end users and can connect to any GPON Optical Line Terminal that carriers deploy.”

TECOM’s new Mini GPON ONT targets European FTTH markets, which require triple-play quality of service to the customer at Gigabit Ethernet wire speed to the home. The ONT features a GbE user interface and supports 2.5G downstream traffic to the customer at any packet size. It is based on PMC-Sierra’s PAS7400 GPON ONT SoC and OMCI software package, which has proven to be interoperable with all major Optical Line Terminals (OLT) on the market at numerous interoperability events.

The PAS7400 product line integrates a GPON MAC, a VoIP subsystem, an embedded controller, and GigaPASS bridge performing advanced classification, queuing, and filtering, with wire-speed throughput at all packet sizes. Advanced power-saving modes can lower PON deployment costs by reducing battery backup unit expenses. The reference designs come with complete GPON ONT software, featuring GPON functions, QoS bridging, VoIP, SIP, and OMCI.

PMC-Sierra also provides a four-port GPON OLT SoC, the PAS5211 for Central Office equipment.
