|MaxLinear and devolo Team for New G.hn Wireless, IPTV Products for Carriers|
devolo's new generation of home networking solutions enables a double-digit increase in data rates compared to current technologies, thus providing the best user experience possible. The new products leverage existing electrical wiring to offer both wired and Wi-Fi connectivity. They provide end users with seamless, robust Wi-Fi coverage across an entire home with the freedom to enjoy streaming video or surfing the Internet anywhere.
devolo's new G.hn powerline products are optimized for very low latency and packet loss to serve applications such as IPTV and online gaming and are the first in the industry to support newly released features required by service providers, including: G.hn power saving mode, IEEE1905a, and TR-069.
Power saving mode is an energy-efficiency feature of the G.hn standard that can drastically reduce power consumption in common usage scenarios. IEEE1905a provides the framework to simplify setup and optimization to achieve expected performance through self-installation. TR-069 is critical in eliminating truck-rolls by allowing remote management and field-upgradability of the G.hn powerline adapters.
MaxLinear’s G.hn Wave-2 chipset (88LX5152 baseband and 88LX2720 analog front-end) combines to deliver the highest performance and lowest latency powerline solution in the industry with net data rates up to 1 Gbps. The ICs implement advanced TDMA technology to achieve the very low latency needed for gaming, VoIP, and IPTV applications. The chipset also features next-generation LDPC forward error correction for error-free 4K IPTV video delivery.
