LAS VEGAS — Chunghwa Telecom, a major Taiwan integrated telecommunications services company, has selected G.hn home-networking solutions from MaxLinear, a provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket applications, and Comtrend, a designer and manufacturer of broadband communication equipment, to deliver gigabit-class service to their FTTx subscribers in Taiwan.
Supporting the at-Home Gigabit Customer
Chunghwa Telecom selected Comtrend’s GCA-6000, a G.hn Ethernet over Coax Adapter and PG-9173, a G.hn Ethernet over Powerline Adapter. Both adapter solutions are powered by MaxLinear’s 88LX3142 and 88LX2718 G.hn ICs. By leveraging existing coaxial cables and powerlines, Chunghwa Telecom ensures that FTTx subscribers can enjoy their gigabit service at home, avoiding the performance problems associated with a congested wireless spectrum and the expensive truck rolls required to install Ethernet cables.
“Our GCA-6000 G.hn Ethernet over Coax Adapter and PG-9173 G.hn Ethernet over Powerline Adapter are optimized to meet the needs of broadband service providers that need guaranteed gigabit performance in their customers’ homes,” said Leon Lin, vice president of business development for Comtrend. “By using MaxLinear’s G.hn platform, we ensure we meet our customer requirements today, while having the flexibility to adapt to new requirements (such as cloud-based AR, VR or 8K video) in the future.”
“For years Comtrend and MaxLinear engineers have worked together to build extremely successful G.hn solutions for the carrier market,” said Will Torgerson, vice president & general manager of the MaxLinear Broadband Group. “We are confident that Chunghwa Telecom’s deployment of the Comtrend GCA-6000 and PG-9173 will continue this trend.”
