Ikanos Communications, Inc. provides advanced semiconductor products and software for delivering high speed broadband solutions to the digital home. The company’s broadband multi-mode and digital subscriber line (DSL) processors and other semiconductor offerings power carrier infrastructure (referred to as Access or CO) and customer premises equipment (referred to as Gateway or CPE) for network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) supplying telecommunications service providers. The company’s products are at the core of DSL access multiplexers (DSLAMs), optical network terminals, concentrators, modems, voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) terminal adapters, integrated access devices, and residential gateways. The company’s products reflect advanced designs in silicon, systems, and firmware and are programmable and highly-scalable. Its expertise in the integration of its digital signal processor (DSP) algorithms with advanced digital, analog, and mixed signal semiconductors enables it to offer high-performance, high-density, and low-power asymmetric DSL (ADSL) and very-high bit rate DSL (VDSL) products. The company’s broadband DSL products consist of high performance CO and CPE chips. It offers a line of multi-mode communications processors (CPs) for residential gateways that support various wide area network (WAN) topologies for telecom carriers, wireless carriers, and cable multiple system operators (MSOs), including Ethernet and gigabit Ethernet, passive optical network (PON), DSL, and wireless broadband. In addition to its DSL and RG processors, the company announced inSIGHT, its new suite of CPE-based software products. Products The company offers multiple product lines that are designed to address different segments of the communications processor and the high-speed broadband DSL markets. Service providers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) choose its semiconductors from these multiple product lines based on a variety of factors, such as the design of their networks, the distance between the fiber termination point and the customer premises, the technology that they want to deploy, the services that they want to offer, and system design constraints, such as performance, density, and power consumption. DSL Processors for a Range of CO and CPE Devices The company’s families of DSL processors are designed for a range of devices that deliver high-speed access to the digital home. Fusiv Vx185 and Vx183 family of chipsets are high performance G.Vector-compliant communications processors designed specifically for the next generation of service gateways in the home. The Vx185/183 are the company’s latest convergence devices that leverage the advancements from the previous Fusiv family, while adding more processing power and critical interfaces to form the foundation for next-generation residential gateways. The highest performance product in this new family, the Vx185-HP, provides leading edge processing power, high speed wireless LAN interfaces for dual-band concurrent 802.11n and 802.11ac, VoIP, multi-mode bonded DSL, and security, while supporting carrier class quality of service and gigabit wire-speed performance. The Vx185 and Vx185-HP add support for VDSL2 bonding. The Vx585 family, in development, maintains the distributed architecture of the Vx185/183, while supporting an even higher level of performance with a dual-core central processing unit (CPU) architecture and additional, higher performance acceleration processor engines. Fusiv Vx180 is an integrated communications processor that features a MIPS-based CPU core, VoIP capabilities, security, and quality of service. It includes a multi-mode VDSL2 data pump that is backward compatible to ADSL2+, ADSL2, and ADSL for flexibility across a range of service provider deployments. The product integrates with home networking technologies, such as 802.11a/b/g/n. The Fusiv Vx180 offers two IFE options. The IFE5 supports up to the 30a profile with 100 megabits per second (Mbps) upstream and 100 Mbps downstream performance. The company’s VDSL and ADSL chipsets for DSLAMs and other CO equipment include its Velocity family of products, includin
