In response to growing customer demand for high-performance and low-cost GPON equipment, Enablence Technologies today announced that it will be expanding the use of BroadLight's end-to-end Gigabit Passive Optical Network Communications Controller Integrated Circuits (E2E GPON ICs) for its high-speed GPON residential gateways and optical networks terminals.
Enablence has been successfully shipping GPON products incorporating BroadLight’s BL2338 and BL2340 Communications Controller ICs and now will start using the BL2345 and the BL 2348 Communications Controllers ICs for expanding the Enablence GPON product portfolio of Optical Network Terminals (ONTs) and Residential Gateways. The Enablence Optical Line Terminal (OLT) platform currently incorporates BroadLight’s BL3458 Communications Controller ICs for Optical Line Terminals (OLTs).
“BroadLight is the clear market leader in the GPON space by delivering products that power the entire GPON system,” Bill Saunders, Enablence’s Vice President of Engineering. “We have had a long term relationship with BroadLight and as demand for our GPON equipment continues to expand the BroadLight’s IC solution was the best way to get to the market quickly with a low-cost and powerful GPON product line with Enablence’s own PLC based technology.”
“Our GPON communications controller IC product shipments are now ramping as we are seeing GPON becoming more pervasive throughout the access market,” said Didi Ivancovsky, Founder and VP of Marketing for BroadLight. “Our GPON communications controllers are enabling our customers to deliver complete GPON solutions at an attractive price point in all market segments.”
