Infineon Technologies AG announced that its GEMINAX MAX and ConverGate chipsets have been selected by Adtran, a DSL equipment vendor in North America, for use in its Total Access series of DSLAM (DSL Access Multiplexer) products.

Infineon's GEMINAX MAX and ConverGate chipsets enable service providers to offer consumers higher ADSL2+ data rates of up to 24Mbps compared to current solutions. With ADSL2+, a conventional telephone connection is sufficient to surf the Internet, receive multiple TV channels and place a traditional or VoIP telephone call all at the same time.

The GEMINAX MAX is an 8-channel ADSL/ADSL2 and ADSL2+ solution for central office, DSLAM, and DLC (Digital Loop Carrier) applications. It allows downstream data rates up to 24Mbps over each of its eight channels and fully supports the latest international standards for ADSL, ADSL2, and ADSL2+.

Meanwhile, ConverGate belongs to Infineon's family of ATM and Ethernet communication convergence processors suited for xDSL traffic aggregation on IP-DSLAM line cards or IP pizza boxes with fast or Gigabit Ethernet backplanes. It provides support for current and evolving network protocol stacks and sets the base for value-added services like video-distribution via Multicast or VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) and VLANs (Virtual Local Area Networks).
