Teknovus Cites 20 Carrier Deployments for its GEPON

Teknovus, a start-up based in Petaluma, California offering Gigabit Ethernet Optical Network (GEPON) chipsets, reported that more than 20 carriers have deployed its OLT (central office) and ONU (customer premises) chipsets. The company cited deployments by traditional telcos, cable companies, and power-line companies, all expanding into the triple-play markets in Asia, North America, Europe, South America and Australia.

Teknovus announced major carrier deployments in 2005, including KDDI, K-Opticom and Korea Telecom. Since the beginning of 2006, more than 12 service providers have installed EPON-based access networks built on Teknovus' chipsets, including Chunghwa Telecom in Taiwan, Hanaro Telecom in Korea and Beijing Netcom in China.
