New Lantiq Entry-Level VDSL Gateway Chip Brings CPE Flexibility to Telecom Carriers

One Chip Solution VRX220 Lets Carriers Offer Family of xDSL Entry Gateways to Meet Customer Connectivity Needs with Support for Fastest VDSL Access Rates

MUNICH and NEUBIBERG Germany, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lantiq, a leading supplier of broadband access and home networking technologies, today introduced its new single chip VRX220 entry-level xDSL home gateway SoC family. The new Lantiq solution enables customers to offer mature, feature rich VDSL Gateways at an unbeatably cost competitive setup for customers and telecom operators.

The VRX220 entry-level xDSL home gateway System-on-Chip is built to balance carrier needs for broadband gateway functionality with low system cost. With the new chip, which is fully compatible with millions of VDSL/ADSL lines in the field and covered by all major international certificates to ensure full interoperability, telecom carriers can quickly add a new gateway design to bring broadband data to subscribers.

Cost-Optimized Design
The VRX220 is built to balance carrier needs for gateway functionality with low system cost. Features include:

  • Significant Bill-of- Material (BOM) savings due to small form factor reference Gateways on a two-layer PCB with Fast Ethernet LAN ports, 802.11n wireless LAN, and Carrier-Grade VoIP.
  • Complete and seamless networking software package with routing, firewall and QoS, and TR-69 remote configuration – a ready-to-go design that enables fastest time to market for telecom operators.
  • Seamless support of VDSL Profile 8, 12, 17 and 30MHz without any change of hardware, including support of Hybrid Fiber/Copper (FTTB/FTTdp).
  • Field proven Vectoring support for future-proof performance in next generation networks.
  • Fully backwards compatible with millions of VDSL/ADSL lines in the field and covered by all major international certificates to ensure full interoperability (IOP)

Lantiq has gained significant market share in the CPE VDSL market. According to the most recent IHS/iSuppli market tracker* report for the VDSL Gateway market, Lantiq's share grew from 33% in 2012 to 37% in the second quarter of 2013.

With the new VRX220 chipset family, Lantiq adds a new engine to continue gaining market share. Carriers can adopt a home gateway strategy that uses a common software platform and feature set in a family of devices – from cost-optimized entry level VDSL gateways to high-end media gateways based on more feature-rich CPE chips.

Comments

Dirk Wieberneit, Lantiq Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Broadband Business Unit:
"Continued advances in copper and hybrid copper/fiber technology strengthen the economics for carriers to extend the life of their existing networks by further investing in VDSL. With the VRX220, Lantiq meets the trend of moving from ADSL to VDSL and beyond for Entry DSL Gateways, while telecom operators can offer highly cost optimized and feature-rich customer premise gateways to their customers."

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
