​Intel buys Lantiq for connected home networking

From ZDNet:  Intel acquired Lantiq, which makes broadband and networking gear, in a move that broadens its connected home efforts.
 
Terms of the deal weren't disclosed. Lantiq is based in Munich, Germany and primarily serves broadband providers.
 
With the move, Intel becomes the latest tech giant to hop on the connected home bandwagon. Samsung has said its appliances will be connected to the Internet and tied together. Google owns Nest and everyone from Apple to Microsoft has some kind of connected home play.
 
Intel is looking to combine its cable gateway unit with Lantiq to tie together multiple devices---that will presumably run on its processors. Intel also has a strong Internet of things unit. Lantiq fills out the portfolio.
 
Lantiq would fit into the gateway portion of Intel's IoT platform.
