MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a provider of radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits, said its customer Guangda has won contracts with multiple cable multi system operators (MSO) in China for broadband customer premise equipment based on MaxLinear´s EN3681 and EN3690 c.LINK 1.1+ Ethernet over Coax (EoC) access technology.
Already a supplier of MaxLinear´s previous generation of c.LINK 1.0 and 1.1 EoC systems to Chinese MSOs, Guangda is ready to deploy its third-generation c.LINK 1.1+ EoC system into MSOs serving consumers in Chengdu, Ningxia, ZheJiang Rui´An, YueQing and CangNan to satisfy the fast-growing demand in China for greater broadband speeds.
The c.LINK 1.1+ system provides enough throughput for MSOs to provide cost-effective and reliable next-generation broadband service to their subscribers.
By reusing the existing coax cables in a multiple dwelling unit, an MSO can avoid the costs of installing Ethernet cables or running fiber to every unit. Since a c.LINK 1.1+ system operates in frequencies above the traditional TV band, it can operate on the same coax cables without disrupting any existing services.
MaxLinear is also a leader in Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) products and has developed MoCA 2.5 technology that provides a solution for MSOs who need even greater networking throughput and capacity.
MaxLinear is headquartered in Carlsbad, California.
