PMC-Sierra is now offering complete systems for symmetric 10Gbps IEEE 802.3av EPON, including optical line terminals (OLT) and optical network units (ONU).

PMC-Sierra\'s PAS8011 system for 10G OLTs and the PAS9011 system for 10G ONUs integrate all the functionality required from an OLT and ONU running at 10G rates, including transceivers, and leverage PMC-Sierra\'s market-leading EPON capabilities and analog expertise.

Since these solutions are interoperable with some seven million EPON ONUs deployed worldwide that are based on PMC-Sierra\'s devices, they enable a smooth and gradual upgrade from 1G EPON to 10G EPON while lowering carriers\' capex and opex.

Raphael Sankar, vice president of marketing for PMC-Sierra\'s Fiber to the Home business unit, said the solutions will allow carriers to provide new services such as the next level of HDTV broadcasting and advanced business offerings, while further reducing capex.
