Sagem Integrates Ikanos Silicon into Residential Gateway for Major European Carriers

Sagem Communications has integrated Ikanos Communications' silicon -- including the Fusiv Vx160 processor, VoIP engine and multi-mode VDSL2/ADSL2+ chipsets -- into its residential gateway.

The Sagem F@st 3464 is being used as the customer premises equipment (CPE) for a major European carrier's next-generation VDSL2 access network, which is capable of delivering HD IPTV.

Ikanos' multi-mode VDSL2/ADSL2+ capability allows residential gateways to be deployed independent of the underlying central office (CO) technology, enabling a seamless upgrade from ADSL2+ to VDSL2 without the added expense of a future truck roll. Ikanos' Fusiv gateway processors feature a distributed Accelerator Processor (AP) architecture for supporting advanced triple play services. The on-chip APs offload broadband wireless local area network (WLAN) bridging, routing, switching and firewall functions from the host central processing unit (CPU), which is then available to perform advanced triple play and quality of service functions.
