The data and voice communications networks that link billions of people around the world are built around international standards.
As a provider of key System-on-Chip (SoC) and semiconductor technology for advanced networks, Lantiq is well connected to this collaborative activity. We are proud to participate in many of the leading organizations and working groups defining standards for Information and Communications Technology (ICT), including work in broadband access, in-home wired and wireless communications, and network interoperability.
We contribute as a company and as individual professional association members to advance the state-of-the-art.
Lantiq - We Go Beyond the Chip™
IEEE is the world's largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. In addition to its highly cited publications and conferences, IEEE fosters development of global standards in a diverse range of technical working groups representing the global engineering community.
Lantiq contributes to standards development in several areas, including Working Group 11 (wireless local area networks), Energy Efficient Ethernet technologies, and the multiple iterations of xDSL.
The Broadband Forum works in the area of broadband wireline solutions and converged packet networks to better meet needs of vendors, service providers and their customers. The organization develops multi-service broadband packet networking specifications addressing interoperability, architecture and management. Its work enables home, business and converged broadband services, encompassing customer, access and backbone networks.
Lantiq is active in the Metallic Transmission Working Group, has made multiple contributions to VDSL and Vectoring documents published by the organization, and participates in testing and certification programs. Furthermore, Lantiq is contributing to the "BroadbandHome", “End to End Architecture” and “Fiber Access Network” working groups. As part of the BBF.069 certification program, Lantiq received the BBF.069 certification for its flagship UGW Software and the BBF.247 certification for the FALC™ On product family.
GSA Global Semiconductor Alliance
The Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) is dedicated to driving the future of technology, with membership that comprises the entire value chain of the industry, including fabless manufacturers, IDMs, semiconductor suppliers, venture capital firms, investment banking firms and other organizations.
Lantiq is active in the GSA’s EMEA Council, which is concerned with trends, opportunities and challenges that the semiconductor industry is encountering in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa).
Home Gateway Initiative
Founded in 2004 by major broadband service providers (BSPs, and joined by leading vendors of digital home equipment, the Home Gateway Initiative is shaping the way that IP (Internet Protocol) services are delivered to the home. The HGI publishes requirements for digital home building blocks, the hardware and software in the digital home that connect consumers and services.
Lantiq has been involved since the group’s start and has made significant contributions to Quality of Service (QoS) and energy efficiency based on a specified Code of Conduct (CoC).
Wi-Fi Alliance® is a global non-profit industry association of hundreds of companies devoted to seamless connectivity. It enables worldwide adoption of Wi-Fi via technology development, market building, and regulatory programs, including the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ program launched in March 2000. This provides a widely-recognized designation of interoperability and quality, and it helps to ensure that Wi-Fi-enabled products deliver the best user experience.
Lantiq’s participation in the Wi-Fi Alliance is a parallel to ites involvement in standards setting for Wi-Fi under the auspices of the IEEE.
The DECT Forum is a global industry association including suppliers and operators of DECT based terminals, systems, and networks. DECT stands for "Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications" and denotes a radio technology suited for voice data and networking applications with range requirements up to a few 100 m. In addition to the DECT and DECT 6.0 standards, the Forum introduced CAT-iq™ (Cordless Advanced Technology - Internet and Quality) for wireless broadband home connectivity using the DECT frequency band(s).
Lantiq participation in the Forum recently has concentrated on CAT-iq and the development of Certification and test criteria.
The ULE Alliance promotes the worldwide market adoption of ULE (Ultra Low Energy) technology in the control network eco-system for automation, security and climate control in homes and commercial buildings. ULE builds on the maturity, existing supply chain, and installed base of DECT, extended with feature enhancements needed to address a sizeable new market with many possible applications.
Lantiq contributes professional expertise in the group’s business, marketing and technology groups and is fully engaged in interoperability testing (IOT) for this emerging technology.
HomeGrid Forum (HGF) merged with the HomePNA Alliance in May 201, to form an industry alliance of over 70 members with the mission of promoting advanced wired home networking technology.
Lantiq was a founder of HGF, contributing to the organization’s technical work, cooperation with standards bodies and the definition and launch of interoperability and certification programs.
The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) drives globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, converged, broadcast and internet technologies. Lantiq collaboration in ETSI primarily focuses on advancing xDSL technologies within the ATTM (Access, Terminals, Transmission and Multiplexing) Program.
Lantiq’s contributions in this area include work on reducing system power consumption, and error correction using retransmission techniques.
http://www.etsi.org/membership/current-membersNICC is a technical forum for the communications sector in the UK that develops interoperability standards for public communications networks and services. NICC is a member-driven organization that is hosted by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), which takes an active role in the standards development process and provides secretariat functions.
Lantiq has been active for many years with the work of the NICC in its DSL and ALA (Active Line Access) Working Groups.
University of New Hampshire – DSL Testing Consortium
Like all UNH-IOL (InterOperability Lab) consortia, the DSL Consortium is a collaborative test program that brings together industry leaders in DSL and DSL related technologies to foster quality, interoperable DSL systems.
As a full member of the consortium, Lantiq participates regularly in InterOp test events for all types of xDSL CO and CPE technology and devices.
Representing more than 2000 ICT and new media companies in Germany, the Federal Association for Information Technology (BITKOM) is the voice of the industry in discussions of policy, sustainability and development issues.
Lantiq participates in different working groups, expert committees and forums of the organization.
The European Semiconductor Industry Association (ESIA) is the voice of the Semiconductor Industry in Europe. Its mission is to represent and promote the common interests of the Europe based semiconductor industry towards the European Institutions and stakeholders in order to ensure a sustainable business environment and foster its global competitiveness. As a provider of key enabling technologies the industry creates innovative solutions for industrial development, contributing to economic growth and responding to major societal challenges. Being ranked as the most R&D intensive sector by the European Commission, the European Semiconductor ecosystem supports approx. 200.000 jobs directly and up to 1.000.000 induced jobs in systems, applications and services in Europe. Overall, micro- and nano-electronics enable the generation of at least 10% of GDP in Europe and the world.
