Ikanos Debuts Home-Gateway Reference Design Based on the Fusiv Vx183 Processor
By Shamila Janakiraman, TMCnet Contributor
Omid Tahernia, CEO of Ikanos said, “Ikanos is, once again, propelling growth in the market for residential broadband services. Building on the breadth and maturity of our Fusiv product family, we are uniquely able to deliver the performance and key feature set for gateways that will truly drive adoption of broadband in underserved and emerging markets.”
Officials explained that the new design will enable Ikanos to supply its Fusiv-powered home gateway processors for both emerging and maturing markets covering South America, Australia, Southeast Asia, and Asia.
In such emerging markets, carriers are deploying, or planning to deploy FTTx with VDSL2 for either upgrading current ADSL customers or to boost fixed-line broadband service deployments in underserved areas.
The Fusiv Vx183 VDSL2 reference design will be available in a compact form factor which will retain the benefits of the Fusiv distributed offload architecture. The design ensures optimum QoS, carrier-grade voice, and host processor power that helps manage value-added services and applications.
Also, the home gateway design leverages Ikanos’ inSIGHT broadband eXperience manager (BXM) which can run on an offload processor independent of the host. inSIGHT delivers an intuitive user interface for consumers and carrier personnel to provide quick, local or remote resolution of noise interference and wiring problems.
GIGABYTE Technology is the first to adopt the new design for the GIGABYTE platform which integrates the basic wired and wireless interfaces needed for entry-level gateway markets. Also advanced features are integrated with options like gigabit Ethernet and dual-band concurrent Wi-Fi. GIGABYTE will be able to reduce time to market and can also support multiple carrier needs with a common platform.
“We’re proud to expand our partner base with GIGABYTE in providing leading-edge broadband gateways to these markets,” Tahernia added.
Ikanos also announced the immediate availability of its single-port Velocity-Uni, the newest member of its VDSL CO (Central Office) processor family.
