XWAY ARX300 Family Highlights

With the new device family, Lantiq provides several new features:

  • Complete ADSL PHY on-chip, including line driver circuitry, compliant with ITU-T G.992 for 28 Mbps downstream and 2.7 Mbps upstream data rates supporting physical layer features such as erasure decoding and retransmission (G.998.4), directly benefiting Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) applications.
  • Industry's first fully integrated Gigabit Ethernet switch and Gigabit or Fast Ethernet PHYs.
  • Integrated, flexible 802.11n Wireless LAN (WLAN) connectivity supporting 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz frequency band operation. XWAY™ WRX312 (2x2 MIMO) and XWAY™ WRX313 (3x3 MIMO) companion chips are low power multi-standard IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n RF transceiver with integrated power amplifier for 2.4 GHz band operation.
  • Two device versions: XWAY™ ARX382 and XWAY™ ARX388 derivatives leverage Lantiq's extensive voice communications and home networking portfolio in multiple reference designs, including XWAY™ SLIC 100 voice interface, COSIC™ Modem DECT/CAT-iq single-chip device, and XWAY™ HNX G.hn chipsets for powerline/phone line/copper wire connectivity. 
  • Low system Bill of Materials (BOM) due to market-leading integration level.

XWAY ARX300 Performance Highlights

  • High-performance dual-processor architecture includes a 500 MHz CPU and dedicated 32-bit protocol processing engine that assures Gigabit routing performance with zero load on the application processor.
  • Fully-compliant 802.11n.e/i/h WLAN performance at up to 300 Mbps with zero-packet-error rate technology and "Thick MAC" architecture to offload processor intensive operations from the main CPU supports carrier grade wireless links for rich media, including IPTV.
  • Designed with power management mechanisms to meet European CoC v4 and beyond requirements.

Comments

"ADSL is the prevailing broadband access technology. In 2011, over half of all broadband access CPE shipments (including DSL, Cable and FTTH) and more than 85% of DSL devices were ADSL CPEs, according to the recent Infonetics' Broadband CPE Market Tracker. With more than 50 million CPE shipments annually worldwide, ADSL will continue to be the largest broadband access device category throughout the forecast horizon 2012 to 2015."

Rainer Spielberg, Vice President of Marketing, Lantiq: "Lantiq's ARX300 family is the first fully integrated GigE/ADSL/WLAN SoC for routers and IADs. It enables carriers to meet growing demand for triple-play services and in-home Gigabit throughput with significant cost, size and power savings at no system performance compromise. This achievement will open the market to new applications around home connectivity and home automation."

Availability

XWAY ARX300 devices are available now for engineering development with key customers. Volume production to support customer roll-outs will begin in the fourth quarter of this year.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
