Infineon Technologies and Jungo have announced a partnership to deliver production-ready, carrier-grade reference designs for the multi-service residential gateway market. The partnership enables customers to offer complete solutions for operator-specific products based on a pre-integrated, carrier-ready software platform from Jungo and Infineon's communications chips. Furthermore, it helps reduce the customer's time-to-market by shortening in-house design by up to 50 percent. The new design is available for ADSL2/ 2+ and VDSL solutions.
The gateway design is targeted at OEMs developing carrier grade CPE that can offer high-performance, next generation multi-service gateways. Service Providers deploying gateways based on the new platform can increase revenue streams by offering new revenue-generating services such as IPTV, video surveillance and Video on Demand (VoD).
The new reference design, for ADSL2/2+ (using Infineon's Danube IAD-on-a-Chip solution) and VDSL (using the TwinPass-VE and the Vinax-CPE), offers a wide range of popular services and functions, including IPTV, home media distribution, WLAN, firewall, VoIP, remote file access and parental control. This robust functionality gives gateway manufacturers the flexibility they need for rapidly developing market-specific products such as triple-play residential gateways, DSL, integrated access devices (IADs), wireless access points, voice and Private Branch exchange (PBX) gateways, VPN routers and home storage routers.
Jungo's OpenRGTM software for residential gateways enables delivery of innovative, usable and manageable value-added services to the evolving digital home, while minimising the Operator's support cost and VAS time-to-market. OpenRG supports all popular home networks and access networks, and includes high-performance feature-rich VAS enablers, such as QoS, VoIP, Firewall and Remote management, as well as a growing set of value-added services. Jungo-based gateways are deployed worldwide and operators deploying Jungo-powered gateways can rapidly and easily introduce new value added services that drive revenues and increase ARPU.
