Computex Taipei 2013, USA & FRANCE: Mindspeed Technologies Inc. and Sequans Communications S.A. announced their successful collaboration in delivering a fully integrated Category-4 LTE fixed wireless gateway reference design for broadband access and other connected home services.
The solution combines the industry-leading capabilities of an LTE baseband chip from Sequans and the Comcerto 2000 communications processor from Mindspeed.
By partnering to offer a pre-integrated and pre-certified Cat-4 solution which combines Sequans' LTE SQN3120 baseband chip and Mindspeed's Comcerto 2000 communications processor, the two companies jointly enable equipment and device manufacturers to efficiently address the fixed wireless gateway market for home and small business users.
With dual 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processors, the carrier-grade Comcerto 2000 solution supports voice-over LTE (VoLTE) and IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) frameworks. The products use intelligent offloading engines that enable Gigabit class networking to run concurrently with the Cat-4 LTE link, while leaving plenty of CPU headroom for user applications such as JVM/OSGI bundles. Comcerto 2000 LTE routers easily support simultaneous 2Gbps IPv6 NAT routing, firewall, IPSec and 1.2Gbps Wi-Fi.
