Lantiq Teams With D2 Technologies for 4G Voice
MUNICH and NEUBIBERG, Germany -- Lantiq, a leading supplier of broadband access and home networking technologies, today announced two collaborations with leading providers of client software that enables rich, native communications services for 4G LTE clients. Lantiq will offer integration and test support for each company’s Voice over LTE software with the Lantiq XWAY™ GRX Gateway Platform, providing networking OEMs and carriers with a path to faster deployment of wireless broadband enabled home gateways.
The collaboration with D2 Technologies and Ecrio Inc. expand on Lantiq’s commitment to accelerate its customers’ time-to-market and design flexibility in the emerging fixed wireless broadband market. Lantiq began building its ecosystem supporting broadband wireless services in 2011, when it announced collaboration with LTE-chipset supplier Altair Semiconductor.
Voice over LTE (VoLTE) is a software stack built around the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) that provides native voice and other rich media services on the digital LTE networks now being rolled out worldwide. These software platforms run on the Lantiq network processor in a Gateway design, which allows equipment providers to quickly integrate support for the next-generation wireless standard into customer premise equipment.
