Delivering any service over any type of media is a complicated task, as each media type requires a different networking component to handle specific protocols and throughput. Allocating dedicated resources for each media type results in huge associated expenses. Today’s access equipment must support significantly more bandwidth for multicast performance to handle today’s demanding video, gaming, and virtual reality application, plus additional protocol handling, traffic management to deliver high QoS, OAM, and content distribution. Moreover, the market is constantly evolving to require support for new applications and protocols. A platform that can support new requirements and interfaces without implementing special new silicon allows equipment vendors to differentiate solutions and respond to evolving market needs using Field Programmable Devices.
Ethernity Broadband solutions offer the best of both worlds, with high bandwidth, high throughput offerings that use FPGAs to ensure easy programmability to account for future requirements. Furthermore, Ethernity’s solutions are capable of integrating multiple protocol and their associated throughput requirements, including G.fast, DPU for FTTdp, and XGS-PON, in a single low-power FPGA that allows reverse power feeding for the remote device.
Our efficient ENET architecture on FPGA creates a family of products tailored to the needs of telecom services and interworking platforms. Ethernity’s ENET Flow Processors have the best available combination of performance, feature set, flexibility, and price for broadband access infrastructures.
