Bangalore: In celebrating 10 years of Centillium, the company is looking at facilitating triple play through its SoC platforms to beat competition. Speaking on the occasion of the tenth anniversary, Faraj Aalaei, the CEO said, “The fiber supplying internet connectivity in most cases is equipped to deliver triple play services, it is the device at the consumer’s end that needs to be upgraded to enable the delivery.”

To address this big opportunity, the company has built the Mustang SoC for Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPON) and Arion for VDSL2 networks. The two products incidentally were built entirely by the India center. “In fact our India campus is the biggest globally; it not just a development center, but a full-fledged organ of the company, with divisions like finance and pricing, corporate HR, manufacturing, marketing,” noted C.S. Mohan, VP and GM of Centillium India.

The broadband access market is presently valued at $1.3 billion, and growing at a compounded rate of 13 percent annually.
