Ikanos Exceeds 5 Million Port Shipments

Ikanos Communications announced that shipments of its Fiber-Fast Broadband chipsets have exceeded 5 million ports worldwide since volume production began in 2002. Carriers in Korea and Japan are now deploying equipment based on the fourth-generation Ikanos solutions, and carriers in Europe and North America are evaluating Ikanos chipsets as they plan deployment of new broadband services.

  • In February 2005, Ikanos Communications announced a programmable chipset capable of delivering speeds of up to 100 Mbps in both upstream and downstream directions over a single copper line at distances under 3 Kft (0.9km). The increased bandwidth capabilities are attained using advanced signal processing techniques and extended frequency spectrum -- up to 30 MHz, compared with 12 MHz in VDSL and 2 MHz in ADSLx. The rollout include a chipset designed for Optical Network Units (ONUs) and Optical Line Terminals (OLTs), and another designed for Subscriber Located Equipment (SLE) and Optical Network Terminals (ONTs). Both products, which are part of Ikanos' Fx family of chipsets, support symmetric bandwidth of up to 100 Mbps in 64 Kbps increments. A carrier would use existing copper pairs extending from the ONTs to deliver high bandwidth services.
