Lantiq has recently introduced the XWAY VRX300, an integrated and high performance VDSL chipset family. Gateway designs based on the new chipset can reach data rates of 200Mbits (two pair bonded) and up to 150Mbits (vectoring) while supporting an array of home networking features, including integrated Wireless LAN, Gigabit Ethernet and VoIP.

The new VDSL chipset provides broadband equipment vendors with the flexibility to produce routers and gateways that support advanced carrier services with fewer components than any other available chipset. All ITU-T standard frequency band plans (Profile 8, 12, 17 and 30MHz) are supported from a single hardware CPE design, and systems can be engineered for the widest possible range of customer premises network functionality.

The chipset uses Lantiq's AnyWAN system architecture, which pairs the company's XWAY GRX300 Communication Processor with the XWAY VRX318 VDSL Transceiver chip. This ITU-T standard compliant VDSL Vectoring and Pair Bonding chip enables carriers to deliver up to 150 Mbits and 200 Mbits performance, respectively, while PHY Layer Retransmission achieves highest possible media content Quality of Service (QoS).

The chipset also runs a high-performance dual-core CPU combined with Packet Hardware Acceleration architecture, achieving an industry leading CoreMark score, with integrated VoIP engine, Gigabit Ethernet switch and Energy Efficient Gigabit Ethernet Phy's. The embedded carrier-grade 802.11n Wi-Fi sub-system with offloading capability allows minimum load on the main CPU while Lantiq's powerful and unique Beamforming technology provides longest reach for entire home Wi-Fi coverage independent of the Wi-Fi client used.
