Hsinchu, October 4 April 2022 /PRNewswire/—— Taiwanese Airoha Technology, a premier IC design company, announced today that it has landed in the US market by deploying the world’s fastest XGS-PON broadband network, ensuring symmetrical 8 Gbps upload and download speeds and low 3ms latency. Deployed to multiple project areas in cooperation with US telecommunications companies, AIROHA IC chips for fiber broadband customer premises equipment (CPE) strictly comply with the standards set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), with a symmetrical speed of 8 Gb/s Verified by Speedtest®, This is by far the fastest real-world fiber optic network and sets a new benchmark for the introduction of 10G-PON technology amid the global recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and a booming digital content market.
A subsidiary of IC giant MediaTek, AIROHA has over 20 years of fixed network engineering experience and an inclusive product portfolio for fixed broadband, designed to provide interoperability and reliability in highly heterogeneous and stability-demanding environments sex. This case demonstrates AIROHA’s ability to help telcos and network operators deploy high-performance services to their customers’ premises faster than expected, while reducing operational and maintenance costs.
Comply with FCC promised speeds and verified by Speedtest®
Federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021 requires U.S. federal government spending $65 billion Regarding broadband access, this has become the biggest focus in the industry. To help build the credibility of the entire industrial ecosystem, the FCC has established strict regulations to ensure that the quality of network services delivers on the promises of its suppliers.exist August 2022, AIROHA helped a US telecommunications operator commercialize the world’s first XGS-PON service, achieving a real-world speed of symmetrical 8 Gbps compliant with FCC regulations. For telecom operators, fiber-optic broadband is not just about providing stability and reliability for network speeds, it is essentially about maintaining compliance with the FCC and earning the trust of a broad market.
The most critical and difficult part of 8 Gbps XGS-PON deployment in the US is achieving low latency under 3 ms according to Speedtest testing® standard. AIROHA solves this challenge with impeccable software and hardware integration and firmware optimization.
Market demand drives the migration of fixed-line broadband to fiber
During the COVID-19 pandemic, market demand has risen due to the work-from-home (WFH) trend, and rapid developments in content technology are driving fixed-line broadband operators to accelerate their migration to fiber optic cables.including innovative applications 4K and 8K Video streaming, AR, VR and Metaverse require high-speed data transfer of high-quality video and audio content. Therefore, network service providers have been researching more advanced PON technology or 10G-PON. In addition, the upcoming 25G/50G-PON specification is imminent.
20 years of experience serving more than 150 operator customers paved the way for the world’s fastest optical broadband in the US market
With 20 years of accumulated experience in deploying broadband services for 150+ operator customers, Aloha Technology has helped US telecom operators realize the world’s first symmetrical 8Gbps broadband service in just two years. In the past two years, AIROHA has exerted all its expertise in providing SoCs, software and services to earn the trust of customers. In the first phase, we demonstrated our strength in enabling GPON technology to customers, and in the second phase, we achieved a major breakthrough in 8 Gbps XGS-PON.
AIROHA has a full range of market leading fiber migration solutions from xDSL, xPON to 10G-PON. AIROHA provides the compatibility and interoperability required for broadband services and supports a wide variety of existing equipment from different vendors. AIROHA is well aware of the pain points faced by telecom operators and network operators in PON transformation. In the wave of accelerated migration of optical fibers, we will continue to provide solid and inclusive solutions and become the most trusted and valuable long-term partner of more service providers.
