PMC-Sierra and Incognito Software Collaborate to Provide End-to-End FTTx Solution for Cable Operators
FTTH and Broadband Provisioning Software Leaders Provide a Management Solution that Helps Ease the Deployment of FTTx Solutions
Santa Clara, CA and VANCOUVER, BC, August 16, 2010 – PMC-Sierra, Inc. (Nasdaq: PMCS), the premier Internet infrastructure semiconductor solution provider, and Incognito Software, a leading provider of broadband provisioning software, today announced a live demonstration of a complete EPON provisioning solution that will provide cable operators with end-to-end management capabilities and enable FTTx deployments. The companies will demonstrate this solution at the PMC-Sierra booth during the CableLabs® Summer Conference in Keystone, Colorado, from August 15-18, 2010.
As the demand for higher bandwidth services continues to grow, PON technology is being evaluated as an efficient method of driving fiber deeper into the networks. The combination of PMC-Sierra’s high-speed standard-compliant EPON and 10G EPON solutions and Incognito Software’s Broadband Command Center, an industry-leading device provisioning solution, will help enable these EPON deployments at a lower cost, using existing provisioning standards.
The joint demonstration will showcase Incognito Software’s adaptable, access network agnostic device provisioning software with PMC-Sierra’s robust, end-to-end EPON solution based on 1G and 10G Ethernet Passive Optical Networking (EPON) technology with a focus on network management, QoS, and service assurance for a DOCSIS environment.
“We continue to strengthen our position as the dominant FTTH silicon solution provider addressing the EPON, GPON, 10G EPON and XG-PON markets, and we are working with partners like Incognito to bring this expertise to the MSO space,” said Raphael Sankar, vice president and co-general manager of PMC-Sierra’s FTTH division. “This demonstration, along with our MSO management software suite, shows our commitment to this growing market.”
“Broadband Command Center addresses the needs of all forms of access networks,” said Chris Busch, CTO of Incognito Software. “We are pleased to be working together with PMC-Sierra to enable dynamic provisioning of PON ONU terminals. Our BCC provisioning solutions ensure customers’ ability to deploy fiber based access networks.”
