PacketFront Employs Mindspeed Processor for Gigabit-to-the Home CPE

Mindspeed Technologies is supplying its Comcerto 1000 packet processor for PacketFront Systems' recently announced DRG 700 customer premises equipment (CPE), which combines Layer 2 switched and Layer 3 routed operation with a residential firewall for secure home networking. The DRG 700 is not only intended for large-scale fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) rollouts, but also addresses medium-sized FTTH projects being implemented by utilities and municipalities. Mindspeed noted that its Comcerto family of processors uses energy-efficient ARM core technology to deliver one of the lowest power consumption rates in its class, and also incorporates advanced, programmable power-management features to support the energy-saving goals of service providers and product manufacturers worldwide.
