Ikanos Extends Lead in Triple-Play Network Technology With Powerful New Gateway Chip

New Entry to Heralded Fusiv Family of Communications Processors Delivers 200Mbps Downstream and 100Mbps Upstream

FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/08/13 -- Ikanos Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN), a leading provider of advanced broadband semiconductor and software products for the digital home, today extended its lead in chips for triple-play networks with the introduction of the Fusiv® Vx185-HP communications processor chipset. The new chipset for home gateways supports high-speed WAN requirements by delivering bonded VDSL2 rates up to 200Mbps downstream and 100Mbps upstream along with standards-compliant Nodescale™ Vectoring. Supporting the ever-higher bandwidth demands of triple-play applications, the Vx185-HP offers the highest overall network processor performance of any comparable competitive chipset, while uniquely incorporating a dedicated voice DSP for carrier grade voice and a serial ATA (SATA) controller for advanced storage applications, as well as supporting the upcoming 802.11ac wireless communications protocol.

The architecture and feature set of the Vx185-HP make the chipset quickly deployable, reducing time-to-market and speeding the launch of advanced services:

  • For carriers, the Vx185-HP provides processing power for technologies such as 802.11ac as well as emerging, bandwidth-intensive applications on home gateways -- enabling new revenue streams from subscribers by providing services beyond voice, IPTV, and data.

  • For CPE manufacturers, pin-to-pin compatibility with Ikanos' existing Vx185-platform chips, together with re-use of existing Linux software and VDSL2 firmware means a faster time to market and reduced time to profitability.

  • For consumers, the Vx185-HP means higher broadband rates to the home, enabled by VDSL2 bonding and Nodescale™ Vectoring technology; better wireless coverage; and support for new data services to the home.

"Vectoring, together with bonding (coupling two copper pairs), is perhaps the most critical DSL innovation for carriers and CPE manufacturers who want to deliver both the speed and functionality needed to power new high-margin, digital home applications that keep consumers both happy and loyal," said Lee Ratliff, principal analyst for broadband and digital home at information and analytics provider IHS. "Vectoring and bonding are critical technologies for carriers wishing to enhance the capabilities of their copper networks and remain competitive with cable and fiber while being cost-conscious."

The Vx185-HP is unique in providing:

  • A distributed processing architecture with 5.2GHz of overall processing power and wire-speed bi-directional gigabit packet processing
  • Multiple advanced interfaces supporting home networking technologies such as MoCA™, HomePNA™, HomePlug®, LTE, and small cell applications
  • A dedicated DSP engine for delivery of full-chain, deployment-proven VoIP
  • Multi-mode DSL (ADSL, ADSL2, ADSL2+, and VDSL2)
  • Hardware Security Protocol Accelerator for processing encryption algorithms such as DES, 3DES, and AES support up to 256-bit.
  • Flexible NAS options using USB or SATA
  • Carrier-class quality of service (QoS)

The Vx185-HP also complements Ikanos' central office products by implementing Ikanos Quality Video (iQV™), which provides the most robust video delivery solution in the market.

"Since the launch of the Fusiv Vx185 family of processors, Ikanos has been fortunate to anticipate the need for speed resulting from multiple, bandwidth-hungry applications running concurrently in the home," said Omid Tahernia, president and CEO of Ikanos. "With our new Vx185-HP, we intend to continue outdistancing other broadband chipset suppliers. Furthermore, we see the adoption of our Vx185 family of processors as evidence that the only innovations that take hold in fast-moving markets are those that materialize as products almost as quickly as they are envisioned."

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
