Broadcom Corporation, a provider of integrated circuits enabling broadband communications, recently announced that the Broadcom BCM6335 asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL) customer premises equipment (CPE) chip is shipping in volume to customers in Asia.
The BCM6335 specifically targets the China ADSL CPE market which, according to Point-Topic founder and publisher, Tim Johnson, is expected to be in excess of 6.8 million lines installed and well over 6 million subscribers by the end of 2003, an 84.7% increase over 2002.
"The explosive growth of the ADSL market in China is driving the need for CPE solutions tailored to that market," said John O'Neill, Broadcom's Director of DSL Marketing. "We developed the BCM6335 and software to exceed China's MII and CCC regulatory requirements, while providing a significant cost reduction for the total solution."
"Broadcom's BCM6335 is an ideal solution to support the rapid increase of ADSL deployments in China," commented Tang FuNan, President of T&W. "We are particularly excited about the BCM6335, as it performs very well and lets us design CPE solutions that are very inexpensive to produce, making it the perfect choice for our customers today."
