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
“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.”
