PARIS, FRANCE – Broadband World Forum, Stand 115 - BroadLight, the leading supplier of GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) semiconductors, and Jungo Ltd, an NDS Group company and a leading provider of software solutions for residential gateways, today announced that the two companies have integrated Jungo’s OpenRG™ residential gateway software with BroadLight’s BL2348 GPON System-on-Chip. This new GPON gateway reference platform enables service providers to offer their customers high-speed broadband access and advanced digital home services over fiber networks.

The new platform allows service providers to accelerate the introduction of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) services and benefit from increased ARPU, while at the same time reducing gateway development costs.

The GPON residential gateway platform from Jungo and Broadlight offers intelligent data routing with quality of service (QoS), carrier-class VoIP, IPv6 support, and virtual private networks with firewalls. The platform also provides seamless support for multiple local area network (LAN) technologies, including Ethernet, USB and WiFi.

The BL2348 integrated network processor (NP) combined with the OpenRG middleware’s open, modular architecture gives gateway manufacturers and service providers unparalleled flexibility for bringing customized products to the market.

“Our collaboration with Jungo has produced a versatile platform for the rapid development of cost-effective residential gateways, connecting the high-speed digital home to FTTH services,” said Doron Tal, VP Business Development and Product Management of BroadLight. “Combining the superior flexibility and performance of the BL2348 SoC with Jungo’s field-proven OpenRG™ gateway middleware enables us to deliver a complete, ready-to-deploy GPON gateway platform for service providers.”

“Fiber networks are gaining momentum worldwide, enabling service providers to increase ARPU with a range of advanced, high-bandwidth digital home services, while at the same time requiring sophisticated CPE in subscribers’ homes,” said Eran Rom, Jungo’s CEO. “We are pleased to be working with BroadLight to offer a robust platform for GPON gateways based on the company’s market-leading semiconductor offering. This partnership further emphasizes Jungo’s ability to supply service providers with best-in-class uniform middleware for their entire home gateway installed base, on all chosen hardware platforms and network technologies.”
