Lantiq and ZyXEL Enable Voice Over LTE Functionality on Award Winning Multi-Service Gateway

Fixed Wireless Broadband Carriers Can Now Offer Subscribers Native Voice Service

BARCELONA, SPAIN -- (Marketwire) -- 02/06/13 -- Lantiq and ZyXEL Communications, two leading producers of broadband access technology and service provider solutions, announced that ZyXEL's award winning LTE5121, the fixed LTE multi-service gateway, now supports Voice over LTE (VoLTE). Availability of VoLTE on a fixed LTE gateway platform allows carriers to consolidate their voice, video and data networks thereby improving network operations and reducing costs in delivering triple-play services to subscribers over wireless broadband.

The ZyXEL LTE5121 gateway was a CES 2013 Innovations Design and Engineering Honoree in the Home Networking Product category; recognized for its innovative design, engineering and cutting-edge features that address what consumers and the market are expecting from 4G/LTE technology. The LTE5121 Gateway is also the best platform for ZyXEL to enable upcoming VoLTE capability for household markets. With this gateway, carriers can provide the same high quality of voice, data and video triple-play services as wired broadband can serve today, but without requiring last-mile wired infrastructure like copper or fiber.

The widely deployed Lantiq XWAY™ GRX288 Broadband network processor that powers the LTE5121 gateway manages the VoLTE software stack, which provides native voice and other rich media services. Lantiq also provides the required voice-line service chip (XWAY™ SLIC110) needed to use standard phone terminals in a home or small business.

Comments

Stéphane Téral, Principal Analyst of Infonetics Research: "47% of the LTE operators we interviewed for a July 2012 study said they plan to offer a voice service over their LTE RAN within one year of launching LTE services. IMS remains the default VoLTE platform with circuit-switch fallback as a backup in areas where LTE is unavailable."

Wayne Hwang, Assistant Vice President of Wireless Strategy Business Unit for ZyXEL: "By incorporating the Lantiq network processor, the ZyXEL LTE5121 gateway is able to provide the processing bandwidth to support multiple advanced communications capabilities. This allows us to respond to market evolution quickly and deliver solutions that allow our customers to provide rich media and other premium services to their subscribers."

Dirk Wieberneit, Head of the Customer Premises Equipment Business Unit of Lantiq: "ZyXEL has long recognized that carriers have to support a wide range of subscriber services while achieving economies in the platforms they have to support. The LTE5121 is precisely the type of powerful, modular gateway carriers need to meet these dual requirements. Our highly integrated GRX288 network processor helps ZyXEL to address these challenging market requirements."

Find these and other innovations from ZyXEL, at booth 5B60, Hall 5 at the Mobile World Congress, 25-28 February, 2013, in Barcelona.

The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future. This advent means logging has become a thing of the past. Before, it was on us to track our own data, but now that data is automatically available.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

You think you know what’s in your data. But do you? Most organizations are now aware of the business intelligence represented by their data. Data science stands to take this to a level you never thought of – literally. The techniques of data science, when used with the capabilities of Big Data technologies, can make connections you had not yet imagined, helping you discover new insights and ask new questions of your data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sarbjit Sarkaria, data science team lead ...
Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, will show how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningfu...
The IoTs will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and share the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the development proc...
Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources. While those clouds delivered faster access to resources, they lacked visibility, control and security needed for production deployments. In their session at 18th Cloud Expo, Steve Anderson, Product Manager at BMC Software, and Rick Lefort, Principal Technical Marketing Consultant at BMC Software, will discuss how a cloud designed for production operations not only helps accelerate developer...

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
