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.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...
Digital innovation is the next big wave of business transformation based on digital technologies of which IoT and Big Data are key components, For example: Business boundary innovation is a challenge to excavate third-party business value using IoT and BigData, like Nest Business structure innovation may propose re-building business structure from scratch, as Uber does in the taxicab industry The social model innovation is also a big challenge to the new social architecture with the design fr...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Is your aging software platform suffering from technical debt while the market changes and demands new solutions at a faster clip? It’s a bold move, but you might consider walking away from your core platform and starting fresh. ReadyTalk did exactly that. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, will discuss why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and over a decade of audio conferencing product development to start an innovati...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate.

If you had a chance to enter on the ground level of the largest e-commerce market in the world – would you? China is the world’s most populated country with the second largest economy and the world’s fastest growing market.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
