Broadlogic Bl85000 300x97BroadLogic Network Technologies and ZTE are teaming to offer a new solution that uses Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) infrastructure to deliver digital TV VOD and broadcast services to cable subscribers in MDUs. The integrated solution, which includes ZTE's C300 10G optical line terminal (OLT) and ZXA10 F100 10G EPON optical network unit (ONU), and BroadLogic's IP-toQAM Node reference design, is intended to offer cable operators an economical way to provide VOD and broadcast services for high-density population areas such as high-rise buildings. It will be demonstrated publicly for the first time during the CCBN Exhibition in Beijing.

10G EPON enables HD and SD digital TV services to be delivered via an EPON-to-QAM gateway that leverages EPON systems already in place for data services. The approach consists of an EPON-to-QAM gateway housed in an outdoor enclosure supporting as many as 128 QAMs. It connects BroadLogic's high-density silicon-based QAM solution and a 10G EPON system from ZTE. The same EPON system can be used to offer VOD services. Other digital TV services, including linear and switched broadcast, also can be offered.

BroadLogic and ZTE also recently demonstrated a solution for delivering broadcast video over EPON for the North American market.

In other BroadLogic news at CCBN, the company will demonstrate new silicon solutions for broadband video delivery based on its BL85000 QAM chip. The chip is designed to output up to 32 QAM channels on a single port, consume less than 7 watts, and also meet DOCSIS 3.0 Radio Frequency Interface standards for North America, and State Administration of Radio, Film, and TV (SARFT) standards in China.
