MaxLinear’s MxL3710 MoCA 2.5 SoC Selected by CIG for its Next-Generation 10G PON Optical Network Terminals

Sponsored by Businesswire

MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of radio frequency (RF),
analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home,
wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket
applications, today announced that Cambridge Industries Group (CIG), a
leading ODM/JDM partner and equipment supplier in the telecom and
datacom market and a global supplier of PON ONT equipment, has selected
the MxL3710 MoCA 2.5 SoC for their next-generation 10G PON ONT devices.

CIG has developed an advanced 10G PON ONT product that uses MoCA 2.5 as
the Wide Area Network (WAN) backbone to reliably deliver multi-gigabit
digital content from the 10Gb/s XGS-PON or 10G-EPON access to the
residential gateway device in the end users’ home or office. This
product is one of the most advanced ONT networking devices available
today; it seamlessly connects to existing in-home coaxial or Ethernet
wired networks to deliver multi-gigabit home networking speeds.

A MoCA enabled WAN backbone delivers up to 3Gbps high-speed broadband
data from the ONT. This performance enables gigabit whole-home WiFi
coverage and in-home mesh networks that support the most reliable and
robust 4K UHD video and broadband data service over IP.

“We are very proud to deliver an advanced ONT product that fully meets
our broadband service provider customers’ new gigabit broadband and
multimedia service requirements,” said Haibo Zhao, CTO of CIG.
“MaxLinear’s MoCA 2.5 technology as the home networking backbone enables
the most robust high-speed digital broadband data service.”

“Operators are investing billions of dollars in their infrastructure to
bring multi-gigabit services to their subscribers and we are excited to
partner with CIG to enable their next-generation 10G PON ONT to meet the
market needs,” said Will Torgerson, Vice President & General Manager of
MaxLinear’s Broadband Group. “ONTs based on MaxLinear’s MxL3710 solution
enable broadband service providers to deliver an easily-installed,
highly reliable platform that offers multi-gigabit speeds seamlessly
throughout the home or office.”

Technical Features

The MxL371x (MoCA 2.5) product family utilizes MaxLinear’s patented
Full-Spectrum Capture® (FSC®) technology that can
simultaneously digitize up to 1.4GHz of spectrum, eliminating any
discrete components usually required for frequency conversion.

MxL371x captures the entire frequency range between 400MHz to 1675MHz
and features a fully digital channel selection and signal processing
chain as well as MoCA network processor and three-port, layer-2 switch
between its interfaces.

The MxL371x product family exceeds strict performance requirements
defined by the MoCA standard. Having this additional performance margin
enables customers to significantly reduce the overall implementation
cost and provide more reliable service over a larger area of

In addition to market leading hardware performance, MaxLinear also
provides a suite of diagnostic software functions that provide detailed
visibility into radio frequency (RF) and networking specific parameters.
Most notable is the spectrum analyzer feature that enables unique
installation and remote diagnostic tools, reducing truck rolls,
improving installation quality and improving overall network performance
with proactive network management tools.
