Broadcom unveils 10G EPON cable residential gateway

Semiconductor company Broadcom has released a DOCSIS-compatible 10G Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) residential gateway reference design.

Broadcom's new design allows cable multiple system operators (MSOs) to provide multi-gigabit speeds for home subscribers' high-speed video and Internet services via a fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network. The new integrated platform enables MSOs to quickly provide multi-gigabit speeds to their subscribers without expensive upgrades.
