Broadcom G.fast chip will work with fiber and VDSL too

The Broadcom approach to G.fast is starting to clarify, as it puts out a part this week which combines 212MHz G.fast with DSL-fallback and GPON. The idea is to make a single chip and even a single device with the chip in it, to terminate fiber, as either a FTTH CPE as well as either VDSL or G.fast CPE. Broadcom described this as the highest performing integrated broadband CPE SoC solution. The BCM63158 combines G.fast, xDSL, and GPON into a single integrated device, enabling Telcos to deploy copper or fiber broadband services with a single, unified platform, and move it insists will simplify platform management. The device will work with bonded VDSL 35b or bonded 106MHz G.fast, or a single…
