PMC-Sierra Inc. has announced a suite of multi-service residential gateway reference platforms that allow OEMs to develop residential gateways optimized for enhanced Triple Play service delivery.

Carriers and cable operators are focused on delivering new high-bandwidth voice, video, media and data services, the Vancouver-based company said.

Enabling these services is driving billions of dollars of investment into solving the “Last Mile bottleneck” by accelerating wide scale deployments of ADSL2+, VDSL2 and Fiber-to-the-Home / Curb (FTTH/FTTC) infrastructure.

The VoIP-enabled multi-service residential gateway reference designs and evaluation platforms include the PM2326-KIT ADSL2+ residential gateway based on the MSP7120 multi-service processor and PM4381 ADSL2+ AFE; PM2327-KIT VDSL2 residential gateway based on the MSP7130 multi-service processor and PM4380 VDSL2 AFE; the PM2325-KIT Fast Ethernet residential gateway based on the MSP7130 multi-service processor; and the PM2328-KIT EPON residential gateway based on the MSP7130 multi-service processor and PMC-Sierra’s PAS6201 EPON chipset.

“Carriers must support multiple broadband access technologies when faced with a wide range of physical plant conditions in their networks,” said Dino Bekis, vice president of marketing and applications for PMC-Sierra’s communication products division.
