Broadcom Corporation has announced a new chipset, production-ready reference design platform and associated firmware that is targeted for Ethernet-based wireless and wired backhauling applications, as well as Ethernet-based business applications that require higher bandwidth.
The new Broadcom BCM96519 multi-line digital subscriber line (DSL) terminal solution leverages Broadcom’s multi-mode ADSL2+/VDSL2, vectoring and channel bonding technologies.
The BCM96519 significantly increases the capacity of Ethernet connectivity over copper, almost 10-fold, with rates approaching 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) speed.??
The BCM96519 provides wireless service providers with upgrades to multi-Mbps backhauling links supporting 3G and 4G base stations, or Node Bs (also known as BTSs or base transceiver stations) to accelerate the introduction of new mobile broadband services such as mobile TV, live video sharing and high resolution 3D gaming.
