EcoNet's Universal Home Gateway Supports Every Phase of Service Migration

  • EcoNet Limited
HSINCHU, CHINA  — EcoNet Limited, a provider of semiconductor solutions for fixed-line broadband communications, announced a highly integrated universal home gateway (UHG) platform that can provide ADSL/VDSL/GPON/EPON/GbE, 5-modes-WAN access technologies by a single chipset solution to meet telco's demands in every phase of access service migration.

EcoNet's UHG is a hybrid copper/fiber solution with two major benefits. First, when a telcom is considering migrating its current ADSL to a higher data rate access technology (VDSL, ETTH or xPON) UHG's 5-mode-WAN access can cover them all, so as to mitigate telco's procurement efforts and inventory pressures due to subscriber's demand uncertainty on different access services.

Second, once a customer calls for maintenance service, it's easier for technicians to handle a single type of home gateway in the field than multiple types of gateways. Moreover, when VDSL access has been deployed, migrating to xPON access involves only negligible costs for the copper-to-fiber upgrade capability. The overall cost of UHG is much lower than the current method of plugging an SFP-type-ONT into an existing home gateway.

Reduceing Telcoms' Copper-to-fiber Technology Migration Costs
"As EcoNet continues to drive multiple WAN technologies integration at the system-on-a-chip level on MT7585, it's increasingly important for telcoms to reduce service deployment complexity, allow them the chance to re-utilize the provisioned universal home gateway and seamlessly upgrade it as fiber access one directly. The innovative design approach of the UHG architecture ultimately reduces telcoms' copper-to-fiber technology migration costs, offering flexibility for the next generation of broadband connectivity solutions," stated Bomin Wang, CEO of EcoNet.

Key Features of EcoNet's UHG Platform:

  • Providing ADSL/VDSL/GPON/EPON/GbE standard-compliant access technologies on one single chip.

  • Enabling seamless copper-to-fiber access upgrade by providing/inserting a generic SFP-type optical transceiver into the deployed gateway(UHG) at home for higher access speed

  • Leveraging EcoNet's superior performance of xPON(MT752x series) and VDSL2(MT751x series) technologies. Both series of the chipsets are in volume deployment now.

  • Unified software architecture with more than 30 million broadband CPEs deployed per year
