Ikanos Fusiv Processors Leverage G.Vector for 100 Mbps

Ikanos Communications introduced its Fusiv Vx185 and Vx183 communications processors supporting the ITU G.Vector standard and bonding for increased rate and reach. The new chipsets, which are aimed at advanced services gateways and integrated access devices, also feature ultra-low power for meeting the requirements of European Code of Conduct and Home Gateway Initiative.

The new Fusiv family offers full ADSL and VDSL2 support, including for all VDSL2 profiles and band plans for Asia, Europe, and North America. The chipsets exceed Broadband Forum performance requirements (TR-67, TR-100, and WT- 114) and support for all wired or wireless networking technologies including Wi-Fi (single or dual-band concurrent modes), HomePNA, HomePlug, Multi-media Over Coax, and ITU

Some of the key capabilities include:

G.Vector Compliance: By employing industry-standard G.Vector (ITU-T G.993.5), Ikanos' Fusiv products are designed to enable 100 Mbps service over traditional copper lines. The new devices add to Ikanos' NodeScale Vectoring architecture, which spans the central office, remote cabinets in fiber to the node (FTTN) networks, and now the customer premises.

Bonding: The Fusiv Vx185 integrates cost-effective support for bonding (ITU-T G.998.1 andG.998.2) by natively interfacing directly to two integrated analog front-end devices. This built-in support is designed to allow service providers to extend the reach of their advanced broadband services by coupling two pair of copper wires together. Bonding can also be used to increase the data rate over shorter distances. Together, bonding and vectoring can be combined to push aggregate data rates up to 300Mbps.

Green / Ultra-Low Power: With the Vx185/183, Ikanos introduces key advancements in dynamic power management.

Gigabit Line Rate Performance: Ikanos' accelerator processor architecture enables reliable Quality of Service (QoS) and optimal packet processing performance. This 4th generation of accelerator processor implementation comes with advancements in packet handling which raises the performance bar for this class of service gateway. The new accelerator processor implementation enables bi-directional Gigabit routing performance while consuming less than 5% of the host application processor.

"Ikanos is focused on delivering next-generation products that provide very high performance coupled with extreme energy efficiency. That's what we built into our latest Fusiv Vx183 and Vx185 – gigahertz of processing horsepower and dynamic power management for operation that beats European Code of Conduct requirements. Add to that support for vectoring and bonding, and we have an innovative product that delivers the power-performance and differentiating value required by service providers around the world," stated John Quigley, president and CEO, of Ikanos.
