Wintegra and Ikanos Team on VDSL2 Line Card Designs

Ikanos Communications and Wintegra have jointly developed a VDSL2 line card reference platform. Under the partnership agreement, Ikanos has integrated its SmartLeap 94xx family of VDSL2 chipsets with Wintegra's WinArrow Access Processors in a line card reference design.

The line card utilizes functionality partitioned between Wintegra network processors and Ikanos VDSL2 chipsets, enabling on-board QoS management, traffic shaping, ADSL termination, and bonding without expensive custom engineering. In addition, the tight integration between access processor and VDSL chipset functions offers the potential for higher performance than designs that employ larger numbers of components.
