Ikanos and DSP Group Demo Multi-Service Residential Gateway with DECT

Ikanos Communications and DSP Group are jointly demonstrating a reference design for a multi-service residential gateway with fully integrated Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) capabilities. The design integrates a DECT/CAT-iq Module from DSP Group with Ikanos' Fusiv Vx180 integrated gateway processor. The Fusiv Vx180 device combines Ikanos' VDSL2 customer premises equipment (CPE) PHY and its widely deployed Fusiv network processor architecture into a power and space optimized chipset that supports all key types of DSL technology, including ADSL, ADSL2+ and VDSL2. The Fusiv Vx180 also combines accelerator processor (AP) engines for data path functions with a MIPS-based CPU core, resulting in the preservation of host CPU processing power for enabling value-added applications. DSP Group's DECT/CAT-iq Module enables superior voice coverage and wideband audio (HD voice).
