Cortina Systems and Superxon Deliver Industry's First Dual-Mode GPON/EPON SFP ONU

Cortina's CS8232 Dual Mode GPON/EPON ONU Powers Superxon's SFP ONU

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/03/14 -- Cortina Systems, Inc. (Cortina®), delivering innovative technologies that link people and networks worldwide, today announced that the Cortina CS8232, GPON/EPON ONU System on a Chip (SoC), is designed into the Superxon Technology Ltd. SFP ONU, the industry's first dual-mode xPON transceiver. By incorporating both GPON and EPON into the Cortina® CS8232 ONU SoC and offering a hardware and software universal turnkey solution, Cortina enables operators to quickly migrate existing equipment to PON networks, which are more scalable and efficient in adding subscribers. Superxon, a leading global supplier of optical transceivers, combines the CS8232 ONU SoC, with its high-performance and cost-effective optical components, into a pluggable SFP module, offering system vendors unprecedented flexibility in their FTTx equipment design.

The dual-mode SFP ONU "stick," compliant to the SFP MSA standard form factor, encloses the low-power, industrial temperature grade CS8232 ONU SoC along with flash memory and optics. The field-proven, software stack supports autosensing of EPON or GPON mode, and can immediately interoperate with any commercial OLT in the market. Samples are currently available from Superxon.

"Customers have been asking for a way to add PON capabilities to existing equipment," commented Jack Zhou, Marketing & FAE Director of Superxon. "With Cortina's innovative turnkey platform, Superxon was able bring to market the industry's first integrated dual-mode GPON/EPON SFP ONU allowing system vendors and carriers to add PON to their offerings."

"As the industry moves to enhance traditional point-to-point Ethernet with cost-efficient point-to-multipoint PON networks, an integrated xPON device is necessary to enable this shift," stated Lup Ng, Senior Product Line Manager, Cortina Systems. "Combining Superxon's integration leadership and Cortina's industry leading EPON/GPON ONU enabled us to work together to deliver an innovative solution to address the market's need for an equipment upgrade and transition."

CS8232: Dual Mode EPON/GPON ONU Turnkey Solution
The Cortina CS8232 Dual Mode EPON/GPON ONU SoC comes with complete turnkey software and hardware solutions. Coupled with the Cortina OMCI and TR-069 stack, the CS8232 ONU's flexible architecture allows it to be configured as either a full-featured Home Gateway Unit (HGU) or as a cost effective data ONU, enabling system vendors to maximize their resources by designing one solution for the entire market. With turnkey software from Cortina, customers can bring a field-proven solution to market with little R&D investment and technical risk.

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands.
