Lantiq and Altair Plans LTE Home Gateways

Lantiq and Altair Semiconductor announced a partnership for the development of LTE-ready home gateways.
The collaboration matches Altair's LTE chipset with the Lantiq XWAY GRX family of network processors for a range of products from simple LTE bridge modems up to multiservice LTE gateways, optimized for different regional market requirements in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

The Altair FourGee-3100/6200 is a 3GPP LTE chipset that offers both TDD and FDD capabilities and has been extensively tested for interoperability with all leading infrastructure solutions.

Lantiq's connectivity and voice product portfolio, including Fast/Gigabit-Ethernet, WLAN, FXS, DECT/CAT-iq solutions, complements the system offering allowing customers to build LTE gateways from pure data-only gateways up to high-end LTE gateways, including voice.

Lantiq's XWAY GRX network processors and Altair's FourGee LTE chipset are available today, tested. The joint system solution is planned for Q1 2012.
