Ready reference design for residential-gateway
middleware from Jungo and Broadlight
GPON semiconductor device specialist BroadLight and telecom
software expert Jungo have integrated Jungo's OpenRG residential
gateway software with BroadLight's BL2348 GPON SoC chip.
This new residential gateway reference design provides high-speed
internet connection to homes over optical-fibre networks.
This reference design enhances cable based Internet service
providers with the ability to offer more home based internet
services due to the availability of wideband fiber-to-the-home
(FTTH) capable Residential gateways at affordable prices.
The notable features of this GPON residential gateway platform
from Jungo and BroadLight includes intelligent data routing
with quality of service (QoS), carrier-class Voice over
IP (VoIP), IPv6 support, and virtual private networks with
firewalls. This reference platform supports both wired and
wireless LAN networks including Ethernet, USB and WLAN (Wi-Fi).
The BL2348 packs network processor (NP) with the OpenRG
middleware's open, modular architecture to offer the designers
higher level of flexibility.
"Our collaboration with Jungo has produced a versatile
platform for the rapid development of cost-effective residential
gateways, connecting the high-speed digital home to FTTH
services," said Doron Tal, VP Business Development
and Product Management of BroadLight. "Combining the
superior flexibility and performance of the BL2348 SoC with
Jungo's field-proven OpenRG gateway middleware enables us
to deliver a complete, ready-to-deploy GPON gateway platform
for service providers."
"Fiber networks are gaining momentum worldwide, enabling
service providers to increase ARPU with a range of advanced,
high-bandwidth digital home services, while at the same
time requiring sophisticated CPE in subscribers' homes,"
said Eran Rom, Jungo's CEO. "We are pleased to be working
with BroadLight to offer a robust platform for GPON gateways
based on the company's market-leading semiconductor offering.
This partnership further emphasizes Jungo's ability to supply
service providers with best-in-class uniform middleware
for their entire home gateway installed base, on all chosen
hardware platforms and network technologies."
