Residential gateway reference platforms from PMC-Sierra

PMC-Sierra Inc. has announced a suite of multiservice residential gateway reference platforms for the industry's broadest range of advanced broadband access protocols. The MSP7100-based platforms are available in a range of WAN interface configurations including ADLS2+, VDSL2, Ethernet and EPON to enable robust delivery of carrier-grade services into the digital home. These platforms, based on the company's VoIP-enabled Multi-Service Processor (MSP) family, allow OEMs and ODMs to rapidly develop high-performance residential gateways optimized for enhanced triple play service delivery.

Carriers and cable operators are focused on delivering new high-bandwidth voice, video, media and data services. Enabling these services is driving billions of dollars of investment into solving the "last mile bottleneck" by accelerating wide scale deployments of ADSL2+, VDSL2 and Fiber to the Home/Curb (FTTH/FTTC) infrastructure.

The MSP7100 gateway platform is supported by the MSP7100 Linux Residential Gateway Software Development Kit (SDK). Based on the Linux 2.6 OS, this SDK enables customers to quickly design high-performance, multimedia and multiservice, VoIP-enabled broadband residential gateways.

PMC-Sierra's multiservice residential gateway reference platforms are available today. The MSP7100 reference designs also provide a 2-channel VoIP terminal adaptor, including two FXS ports and one FXO port, a USB2.0 interface, up to three mini-PCI slots, and support multiple home-area-networking interfaces as well as 802.11g and 802.11n.
