Cortina Systems, Inc. has announced a family of PON products CS8124 quad 10G EPON OLT with integrated advance traffic management, CS8160 10G EPON ONU for MDU deployments, and CS8232 dual mode EPON/GPON ONU with home gateway capabilities. These parts target the growing segments of the PON spectrum.
Cortina claims, for the central office, the CS8124 10G EPON OLT is the industry's first high density 10G EPON OLT driving innovation for line card designs with support for the latest SIEPON and DPoE standards.
For MDU applications, Cortina CS8160 10G EPON ONU SoC device has good architecture optimized for high-density subscriber traffic management. For fiber to the home gateway, Cortina CS8232 Dual Mode EPON/GPON ONU has Cortina Packet Express architecture with flexibility allowing it to be configured as a full feature, high-end ONU or a cost effective low-end ONU.
CS8124: Quad 10G EPON OLT
The Cortina CS8124 10G EPON OLT is the quad 10G EPON OLT to address service providers' need for volume deployment of high density 10G EPON systems. CS8124 integrates 4 ports of 10G EPON MACs, SerDes and IEEE P1904.1 SIEPON-compliant power saving engine into a low-power device. The CS8124 also features an advanced traffic management core, based on Cortina CS8022 1G EPON OLT.
Four symmetric and asymmetric 10G EPON OLT ports
Integrated traffic management with full L2 switch and VLAN processing
Support for DPoE specifications, featuring 2048 LLIDs per PON port - Offers North America MSOs migrating to EPON technology flexibility in their deployment
Support for IEEE1588v2, IEEE802.1AS, and 1PPS+ToD timing synchronization - enables wireless mobile backhaul in 4G LTE networks
CS8160: 10G EPON ONU
The Cortina CS8160 10G EPON ONU, together with the CS8124, provides system vendors a complete end-to-end 10G EPON solution. The architecture features XAUI and four SGMII ports for MDU configurations. With an integrated traffic management engine supporting up to 256 subscribers, the CS8160 also gives network operators maximum control in managing and provisioning traffic from their customers. Coupled with the CS8124, the CS8160 supports SIEPON-compliant sleep modes.
10G EPON ONU supporting 2048 queues and 256 subscribers - Optimized for MDU deployment
Compliant to DPoE specifications, including multiple LLIDs - Support for North America MSOs migrating to EPON technology
Support for IEEE1588v2, IEEE802.1AS and 1PPS+ToD timing synchronization - Enables wireless mobile backhaul in 4G LTE networks
CS8232: Dual Mode EPON/GPON ONU
The Cortina CS8232 dual mode EPON/GPON ONU single chip architecture allows it to be configured as a full feature home gateway ONU or a bridging ONU enabling system vendors to maximize their resources by designing one solution for the entire market. The Cortina CS8232 dual mode EPON/GPON ONU can be optimized for operating cost savings with power saving and OAM (operation, administration, and maintenance) features. The CS8232 lowers service provider operating cost with remote diagnostic capabilities.
Cortina Packet Express Architecture (embedded high performance CPU, proprietary DMA with prioritized channel access and packet buffer management) - Allows pipelined packet processing and maximizes throughput
Advanced OAM support includes IEEE802.1ag and Y.1731 CFM support
Integrated power saving modes: IEEE802.3az EEE, IEEE1904.1 SIEPON, and G.supp45
