An Integrated Product Platform
Centillium’s broad product portfolio offers major
systems building blocks for a range of integrated product
platforms. Two product families are brought together in its
Optical Service Gateway (OSG) Platform offering. This platform
supports feature sets for a wide variety of business and
home gateways delivering quadruple play services - video,
data, voice and wireless.
Close coupling between these product families through harmonized
software offers customers the security of interfacing with
a single product vendor, and streamlines the development
processes. This total approach relieves a systems vendor
from a sizeable software development, saving development
costs and shortening time to market.
Minimizing the BOM is a major focus for any CPE design.
Centillium’s goal is to make this possible by careful
integration of product features across product families.
And this goal is achieved in the OSG by minimizing on-board
RAM requirements and other peripheral devices.
Incorporated in the OSG are Systems-on-Chip
(SoC) selected from Centillium’s Mustang™ and Atlanta™ product
Atlanta 100 is a highly integrated SoC combining a management
processor, a voice engine, and a data engine. It is specifically
designed for residential gateways, media terminal adapter
(MTA), and integrated access devices (IAD). Its design integrates
a high-performance network processor, two RMII interfaces,
a voice DSP (digital signal processor), a USB interface,
and dual PCM/IOM2 interfaces.
The Mustang ME200 SoC addresses the requirements of service
providers deploying customer premises equipment (CPE) for
Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPON). Combined with either
Centillium’s OLT chip, COLT, or interoperable solutions
from other vendors, Mustang supports all the protocol requirements
and relevant standards to ensure error free, bandwidth efficient
delivery of voice, data and video services over EPON networks.
The OSG is sustained by a full featured software
package supporting a standards compliant EPON ONU feature
support of routing, security, NAT, WiFi and voice functionality.
Additionally this package also incorporates a broad set of
APIs, enabling the systems vendor to develop a customized
Customer Development and Evaluation Kit
To shorten systems
vendors’ time to market Centillium
offers a Development and Evaluation kit, (CT-TPGEN210) based
on Mustang and Atlanta. This product provides EPON ONU, Communications
Terminal Unit (CTU), and Media Terminal Adaptor (MTA) functionality.
