Broadcom Corp. released what it touts as the industry's first multimode ADSL2+/VDSL2 chipsets featuring channel bonding capabilities. The press release states that VDSL2 equipment based on these multimode chipsets will enable telecommunications service providers to offer a single platform for legacy (data-centric) services as well as new "triple play" (voice, video and data) services over currently installed copper-based networks. By leveraging these advanced chipsets to support both legacy and new services, service providers can create additional revenue streams, reduce operating costs and maximize available equipment, said Broadcom.

"True multi-ADSL2+/VDSL2 silicon solutions for both the CO and CPE enable carriers to upgrade their equipment once and then focus on providing advanced triple-play services over the technology of their choice, whether it's ADSL2+, VDSL2 or even multiple ADSL2+ or VDSL2 lines bonded together," said John O'Neill, Senior Director of Marketing of Broadcom's Carrier Access Business Unit.

Supports all ADSL standards

The ADSL2+/VDSL2 multimode chipsets support all existing ADSL standards as well as the new ITU-T VDSL2 standard (G.993.2). These devices offer the widest flexibility to meet all required and optional advancements in support of the new VDSL2 standard, including both ATM and Ethernet transport, dual latency and dual interleaving, flexible transmit power, full control over spectral usage, and performance optimizing framing and filtering, the press release further said.

"We believe that our multimode solution, which features data rate scalability over loop length with xDSL flexibility, will be a clear differentiator that our customers will offer to service providers," O'Neill added.
