FREMONT, Calif. -- Ikanos Communications, developer of Smart Silicon for Profitable Broadband(TM), today announced that Netopia, Inc. (Nasdaq:NTPA.PK), a market leader in the broadband Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) market, will use the Ikanos CleverConnect(TM) 600 Very-High-Bit-Rate Digital Subscriber Line 2 (VDSL2) chipset in its next generation CPE. Carriers deploying the Ikanos-based Netopia solutions can offer their subscribers a high-bandwidth solution to deliver high quality triple-play services -- voice, video and data over a single copper line.

"The Ikanos CleverConnect 600 market-leading solution enables Netopia to develop and market a triple-play CPE solution that can be used by carriers worldwide," said Dano Ybarra, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Netopia, Inc. "Netopia is a leader in the broadband industry, and we believe the CleverConnect 600 chipset will help us maintain that leadership by enabling Netopia to deliver the first gateway-based VDSL2 product to market."

Ikanos' CleverConnect 600 is a single-port, standard-compliant solution that enables equipment vendors to develop high-performance CPE such as modems, bridges, routers, Voice over Internet protocol(VoIP) Gateways and residential gateways. The chipset supports VDSL2, VDSL, EFM and VDSL Long Range (VLR(TM)). Its many programmable features and high level of integration make it relatively easy to customize the chipset for worldwide applications. Due to these features, we believe the CleverConnect 600 enables CPE vendors to serve multiple markets with fewer products, reduces time to market, and decreases development, manufacturing and inventory costs.
