Broadcom Products for DPoE 1.0
Leading semiconductor solutions provider
Broadcom Corp recently announced that its end-to-end Ethernet Passive Optical Networking (EPON) Optical Network Units (ONU) and Optical Line Terminals (OLT) chipsets are ready to be deployed in DPoE 1.0 environments.
The ONU and OLT chipsets in combination with Broadcom's DML software facilitate the cable operators to migrate their networks from 1Gbps to 10Gbps. The 1G EPON and 10G EPON access technologies are well suited for the demanding business and mobile backhaul services as they offer the required bandwidth, scale and operability features. Broadcom-based EPON networks support 1 Gbps and 2 Gbps speeds simultaneously; thereby supporting rollout of new services without network disturbance. These chipsets enable cable multi-system operators (MSOs) to offer new fiber-based business services.
Broadcom also collaborated with CableLabs, MSOs and industry Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to create a standard to achieve full vendor and equipment interoperability. Broadcom, in association with other cable labs and OEMS, contributed to the DPoE standard to make it widely available in the market.
Based in Irvine, California, Broadcom is engaged in designing and marketing semiconductor components of network voice, video, and data traffic for various applications. The company continues to drive innovation and engineering excellence across a broad range of communication end markets to help its customers enhance device performance and overall efficiency.
Broadcom currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell). Other stocks that look promising and are worth a look in the industry include
Marvell Technology Group Ltd ( MRVL - Analyst Report) , TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc. and PMC-Sierra Inc , each carrying a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
