LOD, Israel, February 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Ethernity Networks Ltd, a
leading supplier of Access Flow Processors, Today announced the PON OLT
line card on a chip program, an effort designed to help system and
semiconductor vendors to come up with a single chip solution for the entire
PON OLT line card solution.
The ENET architecture enables the support of a full PON OLT line card
solution on a single FPGA, due to its inherent support for fragment frames
reassembly, GEM header generation, logical queue support per virtual
container at ONU side and can support HW acceleration for DBA, as it fully
described at http://www.ethernitynet.com/PONOLTsolution.htm
The first release of the ENET4000 FPGA Access Flow Processor is
designed to fully support OLT EPON or GPON applications, and comes with
User side interface selection of 8 x 1Gbps SGMIIs for EPON, or 4x 2.5G
SGMII for GPON together with XAUI 10G for backplane / up link connectivity.
The ENET4000/PON Access Flow Processor supports all the required Networking
and Traffic Management functionalities at 15Gbps, and includes integrated
SERDESs for direct connectivity to Fiber Transceivers.
The new program enables semiconductor vendors or system vendors that
own PON OLT framer technology to use now the newly released ENET4000
solution connected to External PON Framer, and later through the use of
Ethernity's customization services integrate the unique customer PON framer
technology into the ENET 4000 original architecture.
The ENET4000 main highlights include:
- Integrated Search Engine
- Integrated Hierarchical programmable traffic manager.
- Flexible interfaces
- Utilizes external memory chips based on low cost and power DRAM
- Metro Ethernet and TR-101 compliance.
- Integrated SAR and fragment frame handling.
- PBB/PBT support
- Maintain flexibility, programmability and field upgradeability
- Option for Hard Copy / ASIC
Pricing and availability:
The ENET4000 will start field trials at customer product during
April/08 and is now available for immediate design for new customers.
Design kit includes full software solution, schematics, data sheet and ATCA
evaluation board (http://www.ethernitynet.com/ENET4000RD.htm) equipped with
8 SGMII ports , or 4 x 2.5G SGMII, together with two 1+1 10G XAUI
interfaces. The evaluation board can be ordered and is available for
customer evaluation and tests. Pricing is available upon request
