Ikanos Powers Calix E5 Service Edge Node for North American IPTV Rollouts.

Ikanos Chipset Enables Industry's First 48-Port Multi-Mode DSL Line Card

FREMONT, Calif., June 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Ikanos Communications, Inc. , a leading developer and provider of Fiber Fast(TM) broadband solutions, today announced that Calix has selected Ikanos as the VDSL2 chipset provider to power their E-series IP Service Edge Node (SEN). Ikanos offers very high-density, low-power chipsets for multi-mode applications, which are designed to enable Calix to offer cost-effective, high-bandwidth VDSL2 and ADSL2+ services in Fiber-to-the-Node (FTTN) and Multi-Dwelling Unit (MDU) applications.

The multi-mode operation of Ikanos' chipsets is designed to offer interoperability with deployed VDSL2, VDSL1, ADSL2+ and ADSL CPE on a per port basis, with auto-detect capability. Line cards based on such multi-mode chipsets can enable carriers to smoothly transition nodes, remote terminals and central offices to VDSL2 technology, while minimizing upgrade costs. Additionally, delivering advanced services from a single, multi-mode line card can enable carriers to reduce operating costs, streamline inventories and simplify field operations.

"Calix selected Ikanos because they have extensive VDSL deployments with carriers worldwide, and have the most experience with the technology," said John Faxio, director of market development for the E-Series at Calix. "Ikanos was the best choice for our E5 platform because it provided the highest density, lowest power consumption and multi-mode capabilities."

"Calix is a leader in the access market for IPTV deployments in North America," said Piyush Sevalia, director of product marketing for access products at Ikanos. "Their selection of Ikanos chipsets validates Ikanos' market and technology leadership."

The Calix E5 IP Service Edge Node is the industry's first purpose-built, IP-based, Fiber-to-the-Node (FTTN) platform. Leveraging a robust Ethernet switching core, the E5 SEN delivers ultra-broadband services over the last mile of copper, enabling high-demand, revenue-generating services such as IPTV, VOIP, and video over high-speed Internet access. The Calix E5 cost-effectively meets these demands while dramatically reducing installed CAPEX and ongoing operating costs.
