Broadcom Corporation (News - Alert) (BRCM), a company that provides semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced the VDSL2 residential gateway platform.

Broadcom's VDSL2 features integrated vectoring technology, removing crosstalk interference and proliferating higher-speed Internet, IPTV (News - Alert) and mobile broadband services. Integrated vectoring and bonding add performance consistency across lines while extending reach and broadband speeds, reducing costs and protecting investments in existing copper infrastructure.

Gordon Yang, president, ZyXEL Communications (News - Alert) Corporation said, "ZyXEL is committed to providing reliable, end-to-end and fully-converged solutions to meet carriers' needs around the world. With Broadcom's technology, ZyXEL is providing carriers the ability to offer subscribers new advanced VDSL2 bonding solutions for IPTV triple-play services."

The solution increases capacity (throughput/data rates) on infrastructure equipment and extends the value and reach of broadband services to more households by leveraging the company's third generation of standards-compliant VDSL2 technology and existing knowledge base of real-world deployments. It drives deployment of superior next generation IPTV and mobile broadband capacity and copper plant manageability, and extends service reach to more households while reusing existing copper infrastructure.

Thomas Huang, VP of Service Provider Business Unit, D-Link (News - Alert) Corporation, commented: "We are pleased to work with Broadcom to build the next generation of CPE equipment that includes a wide range of features like Wi-Fi, 5-band bonding and PON. Broadcom's ability to achieve a high level of integration enables the deployment of higher performing triple play services at lower costs to reduce service providers' operation expenses and improve ARPU."

Greg Fischer, Broadcom's VP & GM, Broadband Carrier Access (News - Alert), said: "Committed to breakthrough performance and innovation, Broadcom ushers in the next generation of xDSL gateway designs with G.vector and 5-band bonding together with our market leading 5G Wi-Fi. Now carriers can deliver even more high-bandwidth services to their subscribers and throughout the connected home."
