Hitachi selects Mindspeed Comcerto processor from Caelera to deliver triple-play home gateway for Japan's fiber access network

Supplier News

Mindspeed Technologies announced that the company’s Comcerto customer premise equipment (CPE) processor, available from Caelera , has been selected by Hitachi to create an ultra-low-power home gateway that features 2Gbps routing performance with concurrent WiFi and carrier-grade Voice-over-IP (VoIP) capabilities. Hitachi’s fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) gateways are being deployed by Japan’s largest service provider in its rapidly growing FTTH access network.

Features of the broadband gateway processor include:

  • The broadband gateway processor enables the future digital home with sophisticated, reliable services including broadband multimedia content delivery and high- definition (HD) voice
  • The dual-core processor platform maximizes packet throughput and uses a programmable software architecture, so that manufacturers can offer multiple system solutions for various deployments ranging from FTTH-based triple-play gateways to 3G/4G-routers and WiMAX integrated access devices (IADs)
  • The processor platform not only gives service providers the reliable data and voice quality they need, but also provides the application headroom necessary to deploy a variety of new revenue-generating services to their broadband home
“We are pleased to have achieved this home-gateway breakthrough with Hitachi for Japan’s largest fiber access network,” said Raouf Halim, chief executive officer, Mindspeed. “Japan is the world    leader in FTTH deployment, and a key proving ground for the latest CPE advances. Our Comcerto broadband gateway processors deliver superior CPE gateway power efficiency that we have perfected over five generations of in-house ARM-based development, plus robust router performance for sophisticated broadband services. In addition, Comcerto processors provide the same carrier-grade voice quality found in the more than 200 million voice ports shipped to telephone carriers around the world.”

“Power efficiency is increasingly critical in the broadband FTTH gateway market, and Mindspeed’s broadband gateway processor has helped Hitachi set a new standard in power-efficient gigabit triple-play routers,” said Takeshi Masuda, executive vice president, Telecommunications and Network Systems Division, Hitachi, Ltd. “This exciting new product for Japan’s largest fiber access network is a key strategic milestone for Hitachi, as we continue to enable the accelerating shift toward IP-based next-generation networks, while opening the door to future new services.”
