Lantiq and Intel announced a joint reference platform for fixed LTE Broadband Router designs.
The co-developed reference platform combines the Intel XMM 7260 LTE communications platform with Lantiq’s GRX330 Communications Processor.
- An Intel designed M.2 module based on the Intel XMM 7260 platform delivers LTE-Advanced features including flexible carrier aggregation - up to 40Mhz with support for up to 23 CA combinations in one SKU – and category 6 speeds (300 Mbps theoretical peak downlink speeds).
- The 7260 supports more than 30 3GPP bands (21 bands simultaneous in a single SKU) and global network standards (LTE FDD/TDD, WCDMA/HSPA+, TD-SCDMA/TD-HSPA/EDGE).
- The Lantiq GRX330 communications processor offers a full Gigabit Ethernet router design, using a dedicated acceleration engine to maximize Wi-Fi throughput, while keeping the CPU available for other networking and application tasks.
