Global Wireless Develops Femtocell-based Gateway with Ikanos

Ikanos Communications and Global Wireless Technologies announced a femtocell-based VDSL2 residential gateway platform. The GlobalWireless femtocell base station, combined with Ikanos' Fusiv Vx180 integrated gateway processor, has been designed to extend mobile coverage indoors, while providing flexible service options and reductions in cost and power consumption to the consumer and mobile operators. Ikanos' Fusiv Vx180 gateway processor supports all current VDSL2 profiles. In addition, the Vx180 reduces space and power requirements by combining Ikanos' VDSL2 customer premises equipment (CPE) PHY and its widely deployed Fusiv network processor architecture onto a single chip.
