Ikanos Powers Livebox Play Service for Orange 
New Gateway Featuring the Fusiv Vx185 Processor Enables High-Speed
Internet, Wi-Fi Connectivity for Multiple Mobile Devices, and HD
Voice and Video Services 
FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/13 --   Ikanos Communications,
Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN), a leading provider of advanced broadband
semiconductor and software products for the digital home, today
announced that its Vx185 chipset provides the processing power for
Livebox Play, Orange's flagship triple-play service. The
third-generation Livebox platform powered by Ikanos enables Orange to
deliver high-speed Internet, Wi-Fi, and HD voice and video
applications, bringing consumers a wide range of high-bandwidth
services such as HD video, online gaming, and over-the-top (OTT)
content on multiple screens, including mobile devices.  
The Fusiv Vx185 broadband processor is the core component of a
next-generation residential gateway that enables Orange's new Livebox
Play service, delivering high-speed DSL and fiber Internet access and
triple-play services. The gateway includes dual-band 2.4 and 5 GHz
Wi-Fi networking modules, allowing multiple mobile devices to stream
high-bandwidth services such as HD video. It also offers HD voice
processing, as well as superior connectivity with five gigabit
Ethernet ports and two USB ports. The platform is also G.Vector
capable and supports all of the benefits of the Ikanos Nodescale
Vectoring solution. Offering this rich set of features, the
Vx185-based gateway meets all the demands for connectivity,
bandwidth, and services in the digital home. 
"Ikanos is proud to partner with Orange to deliver Livebox Play
high-speed Internet and connected-home services," said Omid Tahernia,
president and CEO of Ikanos. "With our Fusiv Vx185 chip powering
Orange's Livebox Play service, Ikanos clearly demonstrates its
continued momentum and leadership within the broadband access and
connected home markets, enabling a higher quality of experience for
consumers and new revenue streams for service providers."  
The requirements for gateways to support high-speed broadband
services such as Livebox Play are growing rapidly in response to the
booming worldwide adoption of mobile devices and consumer demand for
rich digital content. According to AT&T, U.S. homes now have an
average of 12 network-connected devices, such as tablets, laptops,
interactive gaming consoles and smartphones, as well as smart TVs and
even Internet-connected refrigerators.  
Supporting the ever-higher bandwidth demands of triple-play
applications, the Vx185 offers industry-leading network processor
performance, supporting differentiated features such as:  

--  Field-proven, carrier-grade voice DSP. Whereas most competing
    platforms support voice processing on the main network processor, the
    Ikanos solution preserves processor headroom for advanced services and
--  The fourth generation of the Ikanos Fusiv accelerator processor
    implementation enables bi-directional gigabit routing performance,
    while consuming less than five percent of the host application
    processor's resources. This acceleration architecture also enables
    high-performance, dual-band concurrent Wi-Fi (2.4GHz + 5.0GHz) for
    reliable Quality of Service (QoS) and optimal packet processing
    performance. Competitive solutions require an additional network
    processor to meet similar performance metrics.
--  The Ikanos Vx185 solution enables seamless mixing of voice between
    standard VoIP lines and cordless headsets connected to an embedded
    Digital Enhanced Cordless Telephony (DECT) solution in the system.
