— China’s Huawei launched a 40T Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) prototype at the OFC/NFOEC 2013 event this week in California. The prototype supports simultaneous 2 Tbit/s transmission of 20 C-band optical channels, providing capacity of as much as 40 Tbit/s per fiber. According to the company, as many as 10 million subscribers can watch high-def VoD services simultaneously.

Broadcom is marketing what it says is the industry’s first low-cost, HD, digital cable set-top-box SoCs with integrated Full-Band Capture and IP video server technology. Broadcom’s BCM7583 and BCM7584 devices provide entry-level HD and HD-DVR platforms for MSOs with features that facilitate Internet video-streaming capabilities to multiple video devices simultaneously. The new STB SoCs also provide state-of-the-art Conditional Access (CA) and Digital Rights Management (DRM) security, enabling the conversion of content from CA to an IP-DRM streaming content to protect the rights of content providers.
