iamba Networks Introduces Industry's First End-to-End GPON Solution for Telecom Equipment Manufacturers and Original Design Manufacturers

CUPERTINO, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 7, 2007— iamba Networks, leading provider of gigabit passive optical networking (GPON) solutions for the telecommunications industry, today announced its comprehensive new suite of products, the iamba GPON Eco-System (iGES) solution. The iGES solution is based on iamba's high-performance, tightly integrated SoCs and offers a complete solution for OLT and ONT system vendors.

The OLT component of iGES includes the iSL2402, a dual-PON SoC, complete GPON management software suite and a reference design that has been tested by several operators worldwide. A quad-PON SoC, iSL2404, will be released in 4Q 2007. The ONT solution, based on iamba's iSN1000 SoC, is a certified manufacturable design that includes PON management and triple-play application layer software, electronic and mechanical design. As part of its iGES solution, iamba offers a manufacturing license for its ONT product line, which includes outdoor and indoor ONTs designed based on inputs from major operators. iamba's ONTs have passed interoperability tests with most major OLT vendors and have been tested by a number of Tier 1 operators worldwide. iamba offers sustaining engineering support throughout the life cycle of each product as part of the iGES solution.

Using iamba's iGES solution TEMs can skip the costly product design, test, verification and certification phases and move directly to the production phase and product delivery, significantly reducing time-to-market, development risks and cost. According to Infonetics, a leading market research firm, GPON is the leading growth segment of the telecom market with an expected annual growth rate of more than 116 percent over the next five years. Over this same period Infonetics research forecasts total ONT revenues reaching $2.83 billion and the total OLT revenues at $1.11 billion.

"GPON has been chosen by operators worldwide as the most effective access solution to meet the growing demands for increased bandwidth in the last mile, driven by the continued rise in volume of data, video and voice traffic," said Moshe Nattiv, CEO, iamba Networks, Inc. "iamba Networks has been involved in the PON industry for many years, which allowed us to witness the pain felt by TEMs attempting to enter this technologically demanding market. We designed iGES as a comprehensive solution kit for GPON, accelerating our partners into the exciting global GPON market."

iGES Technology

The iGES solution is based on state of the art, next generation SoCs developed and owned entirely by iamba: the iSN1000-a line of ONT SoCs and the iSL2400 OLT SoCs.

The iSN1000 ONT SoCs, include a SERDES, a multi-core processor architecture and software supporting management, VoIP, IPTV and legacy services and iamba's unique Traffic Pump Module (iTPM) delivering 1Gbps wire-speed data at all packet sizes. The iSN1000 line is comprised of versions optimized for SFU, SBU and MDU applications.

The ISL2400 is comprised of dual-PON and quad-PON versions. The currently available iSL2402 is a dual-PON OLT SoC, which supports 64 ONTs per PON, FEC and AES. The device, based on a unique multi-core processor architecture also supports a powerful Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation (DBA) function to maximize the bandwidth utilization of the PON interface. The iSL2402 is currently in use by a number of Tier-1 TEMs and has been successfully tested by leading carriers in the United States, Europe and Asia.

Based on the proven technology of the iSL2402, the iSL2404 is a highly integrated OLT SoC supporting four GPON interfaces per chip, significantly lower power and lower cost on a per-PON basis.


Full design information for the iSN1000 ONT SoC will be available in July 2007 and the device will sample in September 2007. Similarly, design information for the iSL2404 quad-PON OLT SoC will be available in September 2007 and the device will sample in November 2007.
