Ikanos to Unveil Its Latest Residential Gateway Processors and Platforms at CES 2014

Company Will Showcase Several Home Gateway Platforms, Including a Media Gateway and a Cost-Optimized Fusiv® Reference Design With Ikanos inSIGHT BXM In-Home Monitoring and Diagnostics

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 2, 2014) - Ikanos Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN), a leading provider of advanced broadband semiconductor and software products for the digital home, today announced that it will unveil its latest processors and reference platforms, addressing the booming residential gateway market, at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The demonstrations will cover a wide spectrum of functionalities, ranging from media processing and distribution to portable consumer devices through a media gateway platform, to showcasing the latest in-home and cloud-based diagnostics and monitoring capabilities provided by the company's industry-leading inSIGHT BXM software suite. Demonstrations will be held in Ikanos' private suite at the Las Vegas Hotel, Jan. 7-10.

As service providers look to offer a wider range of services to their residential customers, the smart gateway, particularly its ability to manage and process content, has evolved into a key enabler for these new service offerings. One of the platforms Ikanos will demonstrate at CES is designed specifically to address this growing need, with a focus on media processing and distribution throughout the home. In this demonstration, an Ikanos partner media processor complements an Ikanos Fusiv® gateway processor with integrated VDSL2 for a feature-rich media gateway platform supporting aggregate (combined upstream and downstream) WAN data rates reaching over 300Mbps, sufficient for delivering multiple streams of ultra HD-resolution video. 

Further building on the leading position of the Ikanos Fusiv® gateway processors, Ikanos will also demonstrate its cost-optimized, turnkey home-gateway reference design based on the Fusiv® Vx183 processor with integrated inSIGHT BXM in-home monitoring and diagnostics. inSIGHT gives consumers and carrier personnel an intuitive user interface that enables quick, local or remote resolution of noise interference and wiring problems such as improperly connected microfilters, wire cuts, or corroded wiring, minimizing the need for service calls or truck rolls, and resulting in lower carrier OpEx and an improved consumer Quality of Experience.

"Ikanos' Fusiv® processors have been deployed by Tier One carriers worldwide," said Omid Tahernia, president and CEO of Ikanos. "With rising service provider demand for higher performance, support for a wider range of applications, and an enhanced level of security and diagnostics capability, we believe our Fusiv® gateway processors are uniquely positioned to be the gateway solution of choice for service providers, as they plan their next-generation multi-service gateways."
