Pace (LSE: PIC), a leading global developer of advanced technologies for
service providers, and Broadcom, a global innovation leader in semiconductor
solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced the
development of a Media Server Gateway that uses the XG5 product specification

BCM3128 Full-Band Capture Cable Multi-Receiver, the BCM3335 Quad Transcoding
Hybrid IP Gateway, and the BCM4360 5GHz Wi-Fi solution.
