Infineon Technologies AG now offers a DECT solution, which when combined with a DOCSIS 3.0 chipset, produces a platform for North American cable service providers to deploy next-generation VoIP services operating over DECT 6.0 cordless telephones. The resulting platform, which fuses Infineon's COSIC modem and DUSLIC-xT with Texas Instruments' Puma 5 chipset, enables system integrators to develop Embedded Terminal Media Adapter (eMTA) products that conform to the latest standards in DOCSIS 3.0, and the latest DECT 6.0 / CAT-iq cordless telephony standards.

"Infineon's COSIC-Modem chipset offers a low-cost, full feature add-on to our Puma 5 DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem chipset, which allows applications and platforms to leverage the flexible architecture of the industry's first DOCSIS 3.0 compliant solution and draws on TI's extensive Voice over Cable experience to meet diverse VoIP market needs," said Ran Senderovitz, cable business manager of TI. "The DECT enabled eMTA platform, with features based on TI's Puma 5 chipset, offers cable manufacturers and Multiple System Operators (MSO) the ability to deliver a completely new telephony experience to the consumer."

"By combining Texas Instruments' cable modem with Infineon's field-proven DECT and SLIC products, we can now offer a unified platform that supports both next-generation DECT cordless telephones, as well as legacy analog phones," said Imran Hajimusa, vice president of broadband access products of the communication solutions business group, Infineon Technologies North America. "This modular solution enables OEM customers to develop a family of products that meet the requirements of the world-wide customer base."

The DECT-enabled eMTA platform includes TI's Puma 5 DOCSIS 3.0-based cable modem chipsets, optimized for triple play and next-generation IP services; Infineon's COSIC family optimized for DECT 6.0 / CAT-iq base station, handset and VoIP gateways; and Infineon's DUSLIC-xT (Dual-channel Subscriber Line Interface Circuit) device for voice and VoIP-enabled device.
