Major Korean Telco Selects Ikanos

Ikanos Communications' Fusiv Vx155 processor will be used in a major Korean telecommunication service provider's first trial deployment of residential gateways. Ikanos' Fusiv Vx155 powers Mercury Corporation's PHY-agnostic residential gateway, which is designed to be used with VDSL2-, PON- and AON-based access networks for distributing triple play services in the home. Mercury Corporation is the only gateway vendor to successfully pass the Korean telco's rigorous benchmark testing and reach field trial deployment.

Ikanos said the PHY-agnostic residential gateway powered by the Fusiv Vx155 enables the Korean telco to deploy this gateway in fiber to the building (FTTB), fiber to the home (FTTH) and fiber to the remote (FTTR) architectures for triple play applications. As demonstrated in Mercury's qualification testing, Ikanos' Fusiv Vx155 delivers wirespeed performance of 100 Mbps with customized Quality of Service (QoS) and firewall/security capabilities for distributing rich-media services inside the home. Datapath processing is offloaded from external components onto the Vx155's on-chip Accelerator Processors (AP), thus reducing overall system cost.
