TI Integrates Wi-Fi into VoCable Platform

Texas Instruments is incorporating Wireless LAN capabilities into a single VoCable gateway.

The TNETC731 chip supports all of CableLab's PacketCable 1.5 requirements. The new gateway design allows cable service providers to also deliver voice quality monitoring, T.38 fax relay, and battery backup. Voice is enabled through wired telephones, as well as cordless single- or dual-mode wireless VoIP handsets throughout the home network.
