AVM Deploys Vectoring on Its Installed Base of Nearly Two Million Ikanos-Based
Home Gateways, Increasing Broadband Data Rates by up to
Enhances the Fusiv(R)-Based FRITZ!box 7390 Gateway With Vectored
VDSL2 Capability and Increased Noise Protection for Higher Quality of
Service; AVM to Demonstrate Gateway at Broadband World Forum 2013
FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/17/13 -- Ikanos Communications,
Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN), a leading provider of advanced broadband
semiconductor and software products for the digital home, today
announced that AVM, a leading manufacturer of broadband networking
devices in Europe, has begun deployment of vectoring to its installed
base of Ikanos-based FRITZ!box 7390 home gateways. Soon to reach the
two-million mark, the deployment is expected to create one of the
largest installed bases of vectoring CPEs in Europe. The enhanced
gateways, which are powered by the Ikanos Fusiv(R) gateway processor,
will be able to achieve a 2X-3X increase in broadband data rates.
Users are also expected to experience significantly improved video
performance resulting from the integrated G.INP protocol support.
This standard VDSL protocol provides additional protection against
impulse noise, which in turn translates into a higher quality of
service for the consumer. AVM will demonstrate the performance of the
vectoring gateway at the Interoperability Pavilion at Broadband World
Forum 2013, in Amsterdam, held Oct. 22-24.
"Since its initial deployment, the FRITZ!box 7390 has been one of our
most successful broadband home gateway platforms, experiencing
continued consumer demand in the market," said Peter Faxel, Executive
VP Products & Technology, AVM. "We expect our close collaboration
with Ikanos and the resulting vectoring deployment on this platform
to create additional interest in FRITZ!box, as the higher throughput
and the improved noise protection further enhance consumer quality of
"We are pleased to see the continued success of the FRITZ!box 7390,
AVM's flagship DSL gateway in the market," said Kourosh Amiri, vice
president of marketing, Ikanos. "Ikanos and AVM share a common vision
and commitment to delivering best-in-class broadband connectivity to
consumers. With the advent of vectoring and the widespread support
among global carriers, AVM's large-scale deployment of vectoring on
its flagship product once again puts the company at the forefront of
broadband gateway technology. We're excited to be a key technology
partner for AVM and applaud them for their vision and leadership."

Forward-looking statements address matters that involve risks and

that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those
indicated in these statements. We believe that these factors include,
but are not limited to, the following: whether the installed base of
our products will reach the two million mark, whether deployment of
vectoring will reach all two million gateways, whether the vectored
gateways will achieve a 2x to 3x increase in data rates and/or
significantly improved data performance, the rate at which we will
continue to sell our Fusiv(R) gateway processor to AVM or other
customers, the acceptance of our products by our customers and
telecommunications service providers; macroeconomic conditions which
may cause our customers to defer purchasing plans or cancel any
purchasing plans altogether despite successful design wins; the
continued demand by telecommunications service providers for our
specific xDSL semiconductor products; the failure of
telecommunications service providers to implement deployment plans on
schedule, or at all, despite increased performance results; our
ability to generate demand and close transactions for the sale of our
products; competition in the markets in which we operate; and the
fact that the products we sell may not satisfy shifting customer
