complete TCP/IP protocol stack. Powered by Marvell's G.hn chipset, Gemtek's
G.hn product portfolio delivers high-performance connectivity for distributing
bandwidth-intensive and real-time applications like HD IPTV, VoIP, gaming, and

"We are thrilled to be working with Gemtek on their digital home products
based on G.hn," said Winston Chen, vice president of the Smart Home Business
Unit at Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. "We are also extremely proud of the
progress that Marvell has made with the integration of its certified G.hn
