Lantiq 'Turbocharges' Home Networking Performance with New Processors for Home Gateways

Flagship GRX330 Processor Uses Dedicated Offload Engines to Accelerate Data, Frees System CPU to Handle Digital Home Applications

MUNICH and NEUBIBERG, Germany and AMSTERDAM, Oct. 22, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —  Lantiq, a leading supplier of broadband access and home networking technologies, today introduced at the Broadband World Forum Show new members of its high performance AnyWAN™ VDSL2 and Ethernet Home Gateway chipset family. The all new highly integrated SoCs include the flagship GRX330 communications processor, which uses a dedicated acceleration engine to maximize 802.11ac Wi-Fi throughput while keeping the CPU available for other tasks.

'Turbocharging' the Processor
Lantiq GRX processors are "turbocharged" as they feature multiple smart offloading engines. This integrated processing technology ensures that networking traffic is processed outside the CPU. This smart approach leads to zero percent load on the networking processor while operating DSL and Ethernet WAN uplinks.

The Lantiq GRX330 processor also introduces DirectLink™, a packet processing engine optimized for 802.11ac. This allows data transmission at the maximum 802.11ac network data rate without any significant load on the CPU. The GRX330 supports full 802.11ac Wi-Fi data traffic with only one twentieth of the CPU horsepower requirements of competitors' Gateway processors.

Comments

Dirk Wieberneit, Lantiq Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) Business Unit:
"Lantiq's unique, lean and smart offloading technologies allow network processing of nearly all data traffic outside of the main CPU. This is substantially different than the typical approach to handle increased network traffic by driving up CPU clock speed, which wastes power and can lead to sub-optimal performance. Our family of smart communications processors ultimately allows customers to more cost-effectively offer value-add services."

More Information on the turbocharging powers of the GRX330, optimized integration and multiple added services is available in the Lantiq Backgrounder on GRX and on the Lantiq website at: http://www.lantiq.com/grx.

Availability
Lantiq's new GRX330 communication processor will be available in production quantities in the first quarter of 2014.
