This open architecture is targeted at small form-factor central office and outside plant applications including wireless base stations, Wi-Fi/Wi-Max radio boxes, next-generation digital loop carriers, optical ADMs, and Fiber to the Curb
optical network units.
We believe Fiber to the Premise and Fiber to the Curb
(FTTP and FTTC) technologies provide the foundation for this transition," said Steve Rago, Principal Analyst for Networking and Optical Communications with iSuppli (El Segundo, CA), a leading communications research firm.
PONs can be deployed as fiber to the premises, fiber to the home (FTTH), fiber to the building (FTTB) or fiber to the curb
(FTTC), and offer a number of advantages over competing broadband technologies.
With these newly introduced devices, Marvell is adding to its SOHO portfolio enhanced QoS and IPv6 capabilities that enable its customers support emerging applications such as Fiber to the Home (FTTH) and Fiber to the Curb
