Munich/Neubiberg, Germany – May 14th, 2013 – Lantiq, a leading supplier of broadband access and home networking technologies, today introduced the industry’s most integrated and highest performance VDSL chipset family, the XWAY™ VRX300. Gateway designs based on the new chipset can reach data rates of 200 Mbits (two pair bonded) and up to 150 Mbits (vectoring) while supporting an array of home networking features, including integrated Wireless LAN (Wi-Fi), Gigabit Ethernet and VoIP.
The new VDSL chipset provides broadband equipment vendors with the flexibility to produce routers and gateways that support advanced carrier services with fewer components than any other available chipset. All ITU-T standard frequency band plans (Profile 8, 12, 17 and 30MHz) are supported from a single hardware CPE design, and systems can be engineered for the widest possible range of customer premises network functionality.
Duh. "...T-Venture, the venture capital firm of Deutsche Telekom, is a strategic investor in Lantiq..." Of course they DT will choose Lantiq. This means there is a big market for VDSL. Ikanos needs to win sockets and move chips out of inventory. Start selling, IKAN!
