China's FiberHome Selects Siverge for Packet Transport Chip

FiberHome Communications, a leading Chinese supplier of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, has selected Siverge Networks' Griffin chipset for use in a packet transport and wireless backhauling platform.

Siverge's Griffin product family provides a Packet/TDM-on-a-Chip solution that can be used for a Universal Gateway Line Card. Siverge's processors supports the full range of layer 1 and 2 protocols including HDLC, PPP, ATM, IMA, MLPPP, MLFR, LAPS, GFP, VCAT, LCAS and mapping Packet over SONET/SDH (PoS), Ethernet over PDH (EoPDH) and Ethernet over SONET/SDH (EoS).

"The unique option of using a wide range of speed and functionality for different systems, along with a single unified hardware design, provides FiberHome unparalleled time-to-market for customer deployments," said Nimrod Gindi, vice president of sales for EMEA & APAC at Siverge Networks. "FiberHome Technologies is known internationally for its compliance to international quality standards and excellence in engineering services.

  • In March 2010, Siverge Networks announced that its flagship "Griffin" chip had been selected by ZTE for use in multi-service and wireless backhauling products. The Griffin family of chip solutions collapses multiple systems into a single multi-service card, performing transport and aggregation functions needed to create a bridge between legacy systems and new services and networks.
