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

Recommended Posts

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.


my god..what would i give to have 10gbps... right now i have just 2mbps
