Ikanos NodeScale Vectoring VDSL Reference Platform Delivers 110 Mbps

  • Ikanos Communications
FREMONT, CA – Ikanos Communications, Inc., a provider of advanced broadband semiconductor and software products for the digital home, reported successful completion of early OEM and carrier lab trials, as well as its first design win, for its innovative Velocity-3 NodeScale Vectoring VDSL chipset. Ikanos’ central office reference platform leverages the high performance of Velocity-3 to deliver an unparalleled data rate of 110 Mbps up to 500 meters across all its 192 ports. This reference platform can also be configured as a “2x192” design in a single, integrated system providing 384 ports offering sustained 110 Mbps data rates on each port, all in a small-footprint, low-cost, and quick-to-deploy architecture.

The fully integrated Ikanos Velocity-3 vectoring chipset for both line card and vectoring card provides the first broadband architecture capable of ensuring SLA-backed broadband services at 110Mbps and above – or 200Mbps and above for a bonded VDSL pair. While lowering the costs of provisioning high-bandwidth service and applications, the chipset also reduces the cost and complexity of deployment. Thanks to its highly integrated architecture, Velocity-3 requires no external FPGAs or processors, greatly simplifying integration with other system components, lowering overall system cost, reducing power, reducing footprint, and lowering deployment costs.

Vectoring Solution Ready for Lab Testing
Telcos worldwide are poised to deliver a new wave of high-bandwidth applications to customers, and are relying on advances in VDSL technology to drive quantum improvements in their service offerings. With Velocity-3 technology providing the first demonstrated and proven ability to deliver sustained speeds of 110Mbps on a single copper pair, Velocity-3 chipsets are now available for lab testing, enabling telcos to chart a shorter time-to-market for integrated, VDSL-based, central office plus home gateway solutions.

With the advances that Ikanos has demonstrated in vectoring, VDSL has breathed new life into a market longing for the next broadband breakthrough. The unique architecture of the Velocity-3 chipset, while providing the full noise cancellation that is the hallmark of vectored VDSL designs, also delivers superior scalability, allowing telcos to scale their deployments rapidly and without the costly, time-intensive rip-and-replace challenges of other broadband technologies and solutions.
