Solutions for Access Network Infrastructure
For operators, having a scalable, reliable and easily managed access network infrastructure is essential, as the access network is what physically enables them to offer services to enterprise and residential customers. While modern, competitive access infrastructure is essential, carriers face relentless pressure to reduce cost per megabit both for capex and opex.
This drives the need to upgrade and deploy a converged access infrastructure supporting higher bandwidth and multiple different classes and types of services over a single fiber plant. Various 10G PON options (XG-PON / XGS-PON / NGPON2, etc.) enable deployment of such converged access infrastructure in a very cost effective manner. Such converged access infrastructures must support high reliability, high security, timing and synchronization and carrier class service delivery with Carrier Ethernet.
Microsemi is at the forefront of enabling such converged infrastructure, thanks to an array of industry leading technologies and product portfolio. Microsemi's portfolio for access network infrastructure includes Carrier Ethernet switches and network processors with SDN / NFV capabilities, Timing over Packet (IEEE 1588 and SyncE) solutions, the most advanced Voice Line Circuit (SLIC/SLAC) solutions, Power over Ethernet (PoE), Reverse Power Feeding (RPF) ICs and Systems, FPGAs with lowest power consumption, as well as Timing and Synchronization Systems and related management software.
Accurate, precise timing at all layers of today’s IP-based networks is critical to successfully delivering broadband services with assured Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) while generating definitive call detail records to enable network billing. Consistent and reliable timing helps deliver quality assurance, network performance, service availability and seamless interoperability among the diverse universe of network elements, service infrastructure and customer premise equipment in next-generation wireline networks.
With the industry’s most extensive product offering to support wireline carriers, Microsemi offers end-to-end solutions from primary reference sources through distribution and all the way to the network edge to achieve synchronization of communications networks around the world.
