Centillium Communications Inc. announced its Optical Services Gateway platform, a solution integrating optical and VoIP technologies. Centillium claims that the platform is the only one in existence that enables systems vendors to offer an integrated services gateway solution to their customers. The new platform is suitable for service providers striving to deliver voice, video and data services capabilities over their passive optical network (PON) access infrastructure to both residences and businesses.

The platform combines Centillium's Mustang EPON (Ethernet passive optical network) system chip with the VoIP, routing and security capabilities of its Atlanta product family. According to the Centillium, their solution would assist system vendors in developing optical network units that enable service providers to offer triple-play capabilities.

"This announcement marks the first in a series of solutions that will help expedite the delivery of advanced services to market, ultimately helping optical developers bring multimedia capabilities to detached homes, apartments and businesses," said Didier Boivin, vice president of marketing for Centillium. With our new solutions, we are helping to increase return on investment across the broadband customer chain."

Centillium's optical services gateway platform is supported by a development and evaluation kit which includes a multi-functional customer evaluation board, reference designs and a turnkey software package. The Optical Services Gateway platform is available now.
