Huawei-3Com Selects Passave Silicon for FTTH

Huawei-3Com has selected Passave's Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) chips for deployment in its Quidway S6500 Series Switch product line. The Quidway S6500 is designed for gigabit-speed delivery of data, voice, and video over fiber and is expected to provide users a significantly lower cost for EPON-based broadband service.

Passave said its low-cost, highly integrated EPON chipset is suited to the requirements of carriers in China for cost-competitive broadband delivery and services.

Huawei-3Com's Quidway S6500 Series Switch product with integral Passave FTTH silicon will begin shipping in volume in the third quarter of 2005.

Passave's optical line terminal (OLT) and optical network unit (ONU) devices are deployed in volume by Japan's major carriers.
