Introducing AnyWAN™, Lantiq's Powerful Modular Design to Simplify Broadband Gateway Development
Design complexity at the system level is a real challenge. Our customers want to use their platforms for more than one technology. Lantiq listens and delivers: Introducing AnyWAN™.
AnyWAN™'s optimized system chip and software architecture gives OEMs and carriers maximum flexibility in CPE (Customer Premise Equipment ) design and deployment. Based on Lantiq system chips and Universal Gateway (UGW) software, the AnyWAN™ approach provides broadband equipment suppliers with the flexibility to build gateways supporting an array of wide area network (WAN) interfaces and local network connectivity options from a single base design
The first public AnyWAN™ proof-of-concept system will be shown at Broadband World Forum 2012. It is capable of supporting broadband access delivered via ADSL2/2+ or VDSL2, Ethernet, GPON, or LTE. In-home networking supported on the system includes Gbit Ethernet, Wi-Fi(tm), DECT/CAT-iq, powerline and other home networking links as well as telephony services including both legacy and VoIP.
Highlights of AnyWAN™:
- Modular Principle Lowers Costs, Simplifies System Support
- AnyWAN-based design allows a standardized gateway system board and standardized system software to support several different connectivity options; much more efficient than designing separate systems to support different WAN architectures..
- Reduced design cycles and a common base platform provide cost and time to market advantages, particularly for OEMs and ODMs supporting multiple network operators in different global locations.
- Network operators will realize implementation and deployment advantages with AnyWAN-based systems based on the ability to re-use up to 90% of the system code across different versions of the base platform, thus lowering system test and support costs.
