MaxLinear modem selected by Technetix for wireless fronthaul-over-coax solution

MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a provider of radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket applications, has announced that Technetix Inc. has selected its MxL85110 broadband modem system-on-chip (SoC) for a new product that enables 10 Gbps throughput over coaxial cable infrastructure, the company said.

By using Virtual Segmentation, 10 Gbps throughput can be provided over a single coaxial cable, alleviating the need to lay fiber or to carefully position and spectrum-manage adjacent fixed wireless radios. For suburban locations where coax is available, 5G can be provisioned quickly and cost-effectively given the ability to leverage existing coax infrastructure.

This video-centric market mandates stringent quality-of-service (QoS) requirements over all transport media. Virtual Segmentation delivers robust connectivity over coaxial cable and provides configurable QoS assurance, TR-069 remote management, and secure firmware upgrade capability.
