D2 and Ikanos Partner for VoIP-Enabled Quad Play Gateways

Ikanos Communications has partnered with D2 Technologies to develop a quadruple play residential gateway design that integrates Ikanos' Fusiv Vx180 VDSL2 gateway processor with D2's vPort VoIP software. The residential gateway supports voice, video, data and mobile wireless services. The residential gateway design also accelerates the rollout of new VDSL2 customer premises equipment (CPE) for the home office or small- to medium-size businesses, offering comprehensive quality of service (QoS) for VoIP and Internet protocol television (IPTV) applications.

The Fusiv Vx180 multi-mode VDSL2 gateway processor provides 2.7 GHz of processing power, VoIP, multimode DSL and security, and supports QoS and wire speed performance. With the Fusiv Vx180, space and power requirements are lower because it combines Ikanos' VDSL2 CPE PHY and its Fusiv network processor architecture onto a single chip. The gateway processor is optimized for IPTV and triple play with features such as dynamic rate repartitioning (DRR) and seamless rate adaptation (SRA), which are expected to be incorporated into future standards enhancements.

D2's vPort embedded VoIP software offers support for integrated circuit and system on a chip (IC/SoC) designs, including ARM- and MIPS-based architectures.
