Xelerated Announces New Reference Design for GPON to Enable Mass Volume Deployment

Fully Integrated Solution Reduces Costs and Increases Time-to-Market

STOCKHOLM, Sweden–(EMWNews)–Xelerated, the global leader in field-proven Carrier

Ethernet ASSP-based chipsets, today announced a new reference design

for GPON. Xelerateds new HX300 family of

network processor units (NPUs) and Ethernet switches can now

interoperate with Broadlights BL3458

controller. The fully integrated GPON

solution enables carriers to deploy revenue-generating services in the

access network while reducing costs, increasing time-to-market and

ultimately enabling mass volume deployment.

The new solution introduces feature flexibility into the first mile,

extending the lifetime of the network by 10 to 15 years. This

future-proofs the Carrier FTTx

build-outs and enables vendor interoperability, which is a challenge

today for many carriers. In addition, software support has been added

for GPON to facilitate smooth integration for the network equipment



OLT market is expected to show tremendous growth over the next few years

as carriers in North America and Europe build out GPON infrastructure.

The combined Xelerated/Broadlight OLT solution provides a unique

combination of high integration and feature flexibility,

said Bob Wheeler, senior analyst at The Linley Group. This

solution drives down cost for the network equipment vendor while

allowing carriers to benefit from programmability in the access network

ultimately providing for easier and more rapid introduction of new


Xelerateds HX300 family of devices offers

seamless support of Broadlights 2.5 G mode

interface. The solution is suited for both Chassis-based GPON systems as

well as ETSI-based pizzaboxes. The Chassis-based solution typically uses

Xelerateds HX310 series of programmable

Ethernet switches on the line card to reduce costs while Xelerateds

HX330 series of NPUs is used on the uplink card to terminate TR-101 and

Metro Ethernet Services, as well as ETSI-based pizzaboxes. Utilizing

this solution, network equipment vendors can now increase their

densities on the line card to 16 GPON ports per line card, driving down

costs and power while increasing integration.

This is a natural step for us. We have been

working with several lead customers to find the right balance of system

partitioning for the lowest possible cost. Now we can allow our

customers to deliver unprecedented service density to drive new

revenue-generating services, said Thomas

Eklund, vice president of marketing and business development at


We are very excited to work with Xelerated

on this innovative GPON solution, said Doron

Tal, vice president of business development and product management at

Broadlight. By offering glueless support

between the BL3458 Quad GPON OLT device and the HX300 family of devices,

we offer a pre-tested and fully integrated solution to our customer

which ultimately shortens the time-to-market.

The HX300-based reference design for GPON will be available in Q4 2008.
