Deutsche Telekom Powers Home Gateway with Lantiq

Deutsche Telekom's flagship Speedport communications hub for in-home broadband services is powered by Lantiq silicon. The new Speedport W 921V Broadband Router is based on Lantiq chips for all its major functions including DSL, network processor, Gigabit Ethernet, 2.4 and 5G WLAN, DECT/CAT-iq, voice, and ISDN.

Features of the new broadband router include Wi-Fi streaming, ADSL/VDSL connectivity of up to 50 Mbps and DECT/Cat-iq HD-telephony. It supports dual band (2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz) Wi-Fi for concurrent data and media streaming, including IPTV, which allows for superior video quality transmission over WLAN.

Lantiq supplied key chips and core software used in the Speedport W 921V, including:

  • the XWAY VRX288 Home DSL Gateway chipset, which acts as a system central processor to support broadband access processing, wired/wireless connectivity, digital voice processing and other features

  • the XWAY PHY11G physical layer chipset to drive wired Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to external devices

  • the WAVE 300 WLAN chipset, with full dual band (2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz) output to support simultaneous wireless data and media stream communications across a household while providing superior video quality with zero-packet-errors across exceptionally long distances in buildings

  • the XWAY SLIC120, a dual-channel telephone line interface in a single chip

  • the COSIC Modem, a DECT/CAT-iq base station device

  • the IPAC-X, an ISDN Transceiver.
