GPON Gateway : Gigabit Passive Optical Network gateway with built-in home networking capabilities

Amedia Networks is developing a GPON gateway with built-in home networking capabilities and a personal media library. The HG-G1000 is being designed to provide the integrated functionality of an in-home Broadband Home Router, an outdoor Optical Network Terminal, and integrated battery backup. Telecom companies will be able to offer the single, in-home gateway appliance for subscribers with no required outdoor-hardened optical or electrical components. This eliminates outdoor installation and media required to interconnect multiple products, while also providing means to utilize existing home television and telephone wiring within the connected home. The device offers carriers Multimedia over Coax Alliance, Ethernet, and wireless capabilities. The appliance is coupled with Amedia's new Broadband Entertainment Center, making it a multimedia control point within the home. Utilizing a web browser interface from any television or monitor, users can browse the Internet as well as download, organize, store, or playback multimedia such as videos, digital pictures, music, and voice messages.
