CONEXANT LAUNCHES ADSL/ADSL2PLUS UPGRADEABLE CHIPSET.
"We have used our proven expertise in DSL to deliver another advancement in performance and functionality in our highly successful Viking product line," said Angelo Stephano, vice president and assistant general manager of Broadband/DSL Access Products for Conexant. "Our new Viking II Plus semiconductor family underscores our commitment to providing our worldwide customer base with high-performance, flexible solutions that support today's technical standards and provide a cost-effective migration path that supports evolving technology standards."
The Viking II Plus platform is a highly integrated solution with feature-rich software supporting a wide array of DSL bridging and routing features including remote management and universal plug and play, that reduce service providers' deployment and support expenditures. Features include:
-- Field-proven technology based on the company's successful and widely deployed Viking family.
-- Pre-qualified at major service providers worldwide.
-- A flexible hardware platform supporting three software options with different memory sizes, resulting in optimized system cost. Options include managed bridge, PPPoE half-bridge and full-router applications. This enables manufacturers to use a single design for multiple product offerings.
-- Remote simple network management protocol (SNMP) management software that is interoperable with major DSLAM vendors including those in China. Remote service provider management via SNMP can significantly reduce the overall deployment costs of DSL service and is becoming a requirement for CPE deployments.
-- Support for all standards-compliant versions of ADSL including ITU G.992.1 (G.DMT), ITU G.992.2 (G.Lite), ITU G.992 Annex A, Annex B, Annex C far-end cross-talk bitmapping (FBM) and dual bitmapping (DBM), and ANSI T1.413 Issue 2.
Conexant's client-side and central office (CO) semiconductor solutions include a full range of standards-based integrated circuits, software and reference designs for all asymmetric and symmetric DSL market segments. Additional products include a highly integrated, multi-application CO network processor for the next-generation of intelligent DSL access equipment.
Samples of the Viking II Plus are available now, with volume production scheduled for the third quarter of 2004. A reference design that supports global ADSL deployments from a single platform is also offered.
