VALENCIA, Spain -- DS2, the leading technology innovator and global supplier of high-speed powerline communications technology, today confirmed its plan to launch its G.hn-compliant DSS9960 chipset next year.

At a meeting this week, the International Telecommunications Union's Standardization Sector (ITU-T) gave final approval to the G.hn specification, which becomes the first international standard for high-speed transmission over power lines, phone lines and coaxial cables. Approval of the G.hn standard marks a major step forward on the road to a unified market for wireline products. G.hn offers silicon manufacturers like DS2 a stable technical specification based on a single PHY/MAC to speed up the development of standard-compliant products such as the future DSS9960 chipset.

"This approval provides us with a solid technical specification so that we can finalize development of our G.hn-compatible DSS9960 chipset in the coming months. The DSS9960 is designed to meet increasing bandwidth requirements and will provide much higher performance than products available today, at a very low cost. We will offer seamless interoperability between our current 100 Mbit/s and 200 Mbit/s UPA-compliant products and the future G.hn-compliant DSS9960 chipset," said Jorge Blasco, President and CEO, DS2.
