Ikanos Introduces iTSS™, Comprehensive Software Suite for Home Gateways and Consumer Broadband Applications and Services

The New Turnkey Software Solution Accelerates Time-to-Market for Gateway System Designers and Device Manufacturers

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2014) - Ikanos Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN), a leading provider of advanced broadband semiconductor and software products for the connected home, today announced iTSS™ (Ikanos Turnkey Software Solution), an embedded-software platform for its family of Fusiv® gateway processors. This new software platform equips system integrators and equipment manufacturers, such as KAONMEDIA, which has already adopted this solution, with a complete, ready-to-deploy software stack for developing triple-play home gateways and related applications on high-speed broadband networks. Ikanos (Booth #B4) and KAONMEDIA (Booth #E5) will be demonstrating the iTSS™ software solution at the 2014 Broadband World Forum conference taking place in Amsterdam on Oct 21-23.

iTSS™ is a comprehensive broadband solution designed to work in tandem with the cost-optimized CPE reference hardware platforms from Ikanos. Built around the Ikanos Fusiv™ family of multi-mode broadband-gateway chipsets, iTSS™ can take advantage of all of the benefits of the chipsets' native features, including flexible WAN interfaces (ADSL/2/2+, VDSL2, and Gigabit WAN), dual-band concurrent Wi-Fi, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet support, and carrier-grade voice. Complete network management modules (such as for TR-069), a full voice SIP stack, and end-user features such as home network topology mapping are also provided by iTSS™.

Complete Gateway Solution
iTSS™ also provides integration options with the onboard Ikanos inSIGHT Broadband eXperience Manager (BXM), an industry-first suite of broadband diagnostic and monitoring tools introduced in mid-2013. iTSS™ leverages the advanced diagnostic features of inSIGHT, along with Ikanos' patent-pending algorithms, to enable carriers to proactively identify the cause of common wiring faults and noise interference problems. Delivering a high degree of visibility and accuracy in identifying and resolving service issues, inSIGHT surpasses existing network-based remote monitoring solutions. This powerful cost-saving feature gives OEM's and ODM's an edge in the competitive carrier market.

With a laser focus on reducing carrier time-to-market, Ikanos integrated its easy-to-use tools for GUI customization into iTSS™. OEM and ODM customers can rapidly create their own branded version of iTSS™ to tailor the software to their own business needs. The iTSS™ platform is also highly extensible, allowing both new customer-facing and carrier-facing applications to be developed over time - providing continuous improvement in the customer experience and lowering carrier OpEx.

"What was recently a nascent market for the digital home has grown by quantum leaps of innovation in consumer-friendly applications and services," said Jon Black, Director of CPE Marketing at Ikanos. "But delivering the benefits of that innovation over the home gateway requires significant software development and testing investment, which can result in delays in service rollouts. Ikanos envisioned that complexity and has responded with iTSS™, giving our customers a platform for rapid service rollouts and quicker time-to-revenue."
