PMC-Sierra and Entropic Demo 1G and 10G EPON

PMC-Sierra and Entropic Communications are collaborating to develop a solution for delivering >100 Mbps broadband connectivity to each customer in MSO fiber deployments. The partnership combines PMC-Sierra's high-speed standard-compliant EPON and 10G EPON solutions and Entropic's Access solution.

The seamless fiber to coax solution uses PMC-Sierra's PAS8011 10G EPON OLT, which serves up to 32 ONUs and terminates to Entropic's Access network controller, which supports up to 63 homes with >100 Mbps of aggregate throughput over the existing coaxial network.
