Keywords:GPON device? FTTH? VoIP?

PMC-Sierra Inc. claims the industry's most highly integrated GPON devices for Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) deployments. The new GPON SoC solutions include the PAS7401 GPON ONT, the MSP7162 GPON Gateway and the PAS5211 four-port GPON OLT, and feature the company's GigaPASS architecture.

Key features
The PAS7401 integrates a GPON MAC, a VoIP subsystem, an embedded controller and GigaPASS bridge performing advanced classification, queuing and filtering, with wire-speed throughput at all packet sizes. Advanced power saving modes can lower PON deployment costs by reducing battery backup unit expenses. The reference designs come with complete GPON ONT software, featuring GPON functions, QoS bridging, VoIP, SIP and OMCI.

The MSP7162 leverages the PAS7401 features and adds gigabit-per-second IPv4 or IPv6 routing, Network Address Translation (NAT) and Quality of Service (QoS) features. The reference design includes complete GPON gateway software featuring an RG management application, GPON functions, bridging, routing, NAT and QoS, Wi-Fi, VoIP and SIP, and OMCI.

The PAS5211 integrates four GPON MACs, a backplane interface of either one 10Gbit/s port or four 2.5Gbit/s ports, an embedded controller and a GigaPASS bridge performing advanced classification, queuing and filtering at line-rate. Sophisticated DBA accelerators and embedded optical supervision cores can lower the network deployment and maintenance costs. Its high-density OLT line card reference design comes with complete software including GPON link management protocols, DBA algorithm and an API layer that are portable to a variety of operating system and host processors.

The PAS7401, MSP7162 and PAS5211are sampling. Reference Designs are also available now.
