Fancy 10 Gbps home broadband? Broadcom's built the guts of it

1 post in this topic

While network operators around the world squeeze the last drops of sweat out of their copper, silicon vendors like Broadcom have an eye firmly on a fibre future.

The company, currently in the throes of a takeover by Avago technologies, has announced a reference design to help its OEMs build kit to the emerging Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPON) standard, CableLabs' contribution (via the IEEE) to the eventual migration to fibre-to-the-premises.

So as not to demand a forklift migration at the network's head-end, CableLabs' Ethernet PON and DPoE (DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON) is designed to format existing DOCSIS transmissions over all-optical networks.

The Broadcom reference design shows OEMs how to create DOCSIS-compatible residential EPON gateways capable of 10 Gbps.
