Broadcom Corporation’s new BCM55524 Quad Port Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) Optical Line Terminal (OLT) system-on-a-chip (SoC) combines the functionality of up to seven application-specific standard parts (ASSPs) and eliminates seven on-board memory devices. Optimized to meet the bandwidth, scalability, and performance demands of next-generation broadband access networks serving both business and residential subscribers, the BCM55524 delivers twice the density and half the power per port of its predecessor, the TK3723.

The BCM55524 quad OLT is designed to work in tandem with Broadcom’s StrataXGS aggregation switch series, combining EPON and Carrier Ethernet performance in an end-to-end solution that meets the feature set requirements of next generation FTTx deployments.

The BCM55524 is now sampling with production volume slated for the first half of 2012.
