Lantiq teams with Qualcomm Ateros for gigabit home gateway refernce design
June 13, 2012 // Nick Flaherty
German communications chip designer Lantiq is working with Qualcomm Atheros on a reference design for a gigabit broadband home gateway.
The collaboration provides gateway manufacturers with a complete software and hardware reference design featuring the newest evolution of 802.11 Wi-Fi and proven DSL broadband gateway functionality. With full test and validation of the design by Lantiq and Qualcomm Atheros, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can focus effort on value-added features built on a platform that achieves maximum wired and wireless throughput for triple-play broadband services. To ensure end-to-end Gigabit wireless interoperability, the reference design enables manufacturer readiness for the first wave of Wi-Fi certification of 802.11ac products, targeted by the industry for the first quarter of 2013.
Customer interest confirms that advanced home networks will operate with a mix of wired and wireless technologies that combine to deliver the best possible end-consumer experience," said Dirk Wieberneit, SVP/GM of the CPE Business Unit at Lantiq. "One of the benefits of the Lantiq and Qualcomm Atheros smart integration is that the Wi-Fi subsystem offloads the main processor so that the CPU power is available for other applications.
The Lantiq XWAY ARX300 and VRX288 are cost-optimized home gateway chipsets supporting either ADSL or VDSL broadband access. It uses a dual processor architecture with application processor CPU and dedicated 32bit protocol processing engine that assures wirespeed Gigabit routing performance with zero load on the application processor. It also includes a VDSL2 technology with advanced DSL Physical Layer features and service improvement techniques such as Erasure Decoding & ITU-T Universal Retransmission for up to 100/50 Mbps (downstream/upstream) data rates on VDSL networks to handle multiple IPTV streams and concurrent digital voice and data service access.All news
