Lantiq Announces Carrier-Class Network Processing for Home Gateway

"You get the service you want at the quality you want. By far the most flexible and secure gateway that has ever existed!" --Rainer Spielberg, Lantiq-- Multi-Gigabit Routing Enables Unmatched QoS, Paired with Dedicated Security and Hardware-Enforced Virtualization to Deliver True Digital Home Experience

MUNICH and NEUBIBERG, Germany, March 16, 2015 -- Lantiq, a leading supplier of broadband access and home networking technologies, today introduced the industry's most integrated home gateway network processor. The new GRX350 combines unsurpassed routing performance and bi-directional packet classification to provide True Quality of Service (TrueQoS), along with a dedicated Trusted Execution Processor (TrustWorld) and hardware-enforced virtualization (TrueVirtualization). This virtualization isolates concurrent applications so that networking functionality executes separately from non-networking applications, such as smart home services. One benefit of this architecture is shortened test time and time to market of new applications - without endangering the stability and integrity of the core networking software.


The MIPS based GRX350 network processor integrates carrier grade edge router features into its advanced home gateway architecture, which includes multiple CPUs, Gigabit switch with integrated GPHYs, 3x3 Wi-Fi, Voice and DECT telephony. Following Lantiq's AnyWAN concept, the chipset effortlessly handles any kind of wide-area-network (WAN) connectivity including the new G.fast standard.

* Next generation multi-service gateways based on the Lantiq processor will concurrently manage multiple Gigabits of incoming data streams from interfaces, like G.fast, GPON, Gigabit Ethernet WAN, VDSL2 or hybrid access network approaches such as DSLTE (DSL + LTE).

* GRX350 integrates advanced offloading technologies to intelligently manage the multi-millions of packets from all the wired and wireless devices competing for network bandwidth in digital home environments doing it with a 0% CPU load.

* In a first for home gateway network processors, Lantiq applies TrueQoS with hardware acceleration to all downstream and upstream data traffic, using full packet classification and bandwidth protection to assure the best possible customer experience

* With GRX350 the home gateway supports virtual provisioning of network functions in SDN (Software Defined Network) / NFV (Network Function Virtualization) scenarios by linking the standard OpenFlow protocol to its embedded TrueQoS and Packet Acceleration engines.

Rainer Spielberg, Vice President and Head of the Residential Gateway Solutions Business Line at Lantiq:

"The new Lantiq GRX350 Network Processor opens the door to previously unavailable levels of service quality in broadband home networking. With Lantiq TrueQoS, customers get the service they want at the quality they want. In addition the GRX350 will power the most secure gateways ever available for home networks, thanks to the dedicated security core. We believe these unique features will be the heart of the true digital home."

The GRX350 is based on Imagination Technologies' interAptiv processor core which is among the most performance-efficient and feature-rich CPU cores in its class. GRX350 includes multiple multi-threaded MIPS CPUs.
