Accton Selects Xelerated for GigE Fiber Access Products

Taiwan-based Accton Technology Corp. has selected Xelerated's programmable Ethernet switching silicon for new ODM products aimed at the unified fiber access market.

The two companies are bringing to market Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) access switches based on Xelerated's silicon and data plane software with Accton's system level product and production expertise.

Xelerated and Accton are showcasing their first product, a Gigabit Ethernet fiber access switch at this week's Interop show in Las Vegas.

The design provides a service density of 44 GE point-to-point access ports and four 10GE uplink ports in one rack unit space. The data plane is based on Xelerated's unified fiber access software, which supports point-to-point Ethernet, PON and mobile backhaul applications.
