Ikanos Chipset Selected For Sunrise Test Solution

Sunrise Telecom is using Ikanos Communications' Fx10050S-5 VDSL2 customer premises equipment (CPE) chipset in its latest VDSL Transceiver Unit-Remote Terminal (VTU-R) test solution for its SunSet MTT modular platform. The fifth-generation Fx10050S-5 VDSL2 CPE chipset supports all VDSL2 profiles up to 17.6 MHz and offers up to 100/50 Mbps performance. Ikanos' VDSL2 and VDSL chipsets have the highest market share in the industry for both the central office and the CPE sides, according to market research firm iSuppli. "The growing demand for bandwidth, combined with the trend to bundle voice, video and data on a single packet-based network, is increasing the complexity of the network," Dean Westman, vice president and general manager for Ikanos' Gateway Products Group, said in a statement. "By enabling innovative DSL testing and monitoring solutions, Ikanos is easing service providers' deployments of IPTV and triple play services worldwide." Sunrise's solution offers service providers a range of testing capabilities to support today's triple play network deployments. It is geared for efficient VDSL2 service installation and verification.
