Lantiq Powers First CAT-iq 2.0 Home Gateway for DT

Lantiq's XWAY and COSIC silicon will power the industry's first home gateway certified by the DECT Forum as compliant with the CAT-iq 2.0 profile. Specifically, Deutsche Telekom will upgrade its Speedport W 504V home gateway to be CAT-iq 2.0 compliant in its service area beginning this summer.

Two Lantiq single-chip devices are used in the home gateway. The Lantiq COSIC Modem is an integrated CAT-iq solution featuring a baseband controller, RF transceiver and a power amplifier on a single chip. This can be used with any of the Lantiq XWAY xRX family of CPE products for xDSL gateways. Lantiq's embedded VoIP engine is the DECT software stack which serves as the engine at the heart of the CAT-iq implementation and is supported with a toolkit for application integration.

CAT-iq is a next generation cordless phone technology for advanced IP-based communications, beginning with wideband, HD-quality voice services and expanding to a rich suite of voice services and data-driven applications. Features of CAT-iq 2.0 include multi-line support, easy pairing and phonebook synchronization. As future CAT-iq profiles are released, service providers will be able to push new voice and data services to consumers that essentially make cordless phones part of a broadband intelligent home network.http://www.lantiq.com
