New 10-gigabit ready gateway platforms will deliver new speed, lower latency, high capacity

MaxLinear Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket applications, has announced that it is working with Intel Corporation and Cable industry leaders, including Charter, Comcast and Cox, on a new family of 10 gigabit ready gateway platforms for the home, the company said.

The new platforms will support 10 Gigabit Full Duplex DOCSIS 3.1® (FDX) to deliver multi-gigabit upload and download speeds. MaxLinear is currently developing a new front-end SoC for these platforms based on its patented Full-Spectrum Capture® (FSC®) technology that includes sophisticated diagnostic and spectrum management capabilities.

The front-end will include high speed connectivity to Intel´s next-generation gateway SoC. Intel´s SoC will offer powerful computing and networking performance and is architected for a wide range of WAN, LAN and WLAN use cases to help MSOs achieve optimal performance and improve Quality of Service (QoS).

The MaxLinear IC, along with Intel´s next-generation gateway SoC, will be highly optimized to provide the greatest level of integration while maintaining system design flexibility to support future evolution of implementations. The modular nature of this solution ensures a simple, non-disruptive, path to potential future DOCSIS standards.
