PARIS, FRANCE; Broadband World Forum 2010: Broadcom Corp. has announced the availability of its BCM6818 Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON)-based residential gateway system-on-a-chip (SoC) solution.
The BCM6818 represents one of the first and most complete hardware and software solutions currently available for enabling advanced GPON-based residential gateway services that include Wi-Fi, voice over IP (VoIP), Ethernet switching and IPTV.
Broadcom's residential gateway software continues to be the most widely deployed globally and supports the Broadcom BCM6818 solution. It is the first residential gateway software to combine TR-069 (which is already part of carrier DSL residential gateway management) with OMCI to enable GPON and provide unparalleled standards-based silicon that simplifies carrier deployment models and preserves the DSL architecture.
With the BCM6818 announcement, Broadcom further completes its broadband carrier access portfolio spanning from gigabit bridges to complete residential gateways in highly optimized solutions that address ADSL, VDSL and GPON segments.
With a portfolio of market leading and high performance carrier access solutions, Broadcom demonstrates these industry-leading solutions at this week's Broadband World Forum in Paris.
