Westell Technologies announces next-generation IPTV residential gateways
Westell Technologies has announced the development of the Westell UltraLine Series3 networking gateway products for IPTV and other bandwidth-intensive IP services delivery.
The versatile, new line of gateway products is built around a high-performance, dual-core network processor that ensures IP video streams reach their final destination within the home while assuring picture quality. The UltraLine Series3's increased processing power permits the deployment of video monitoring techniques as well as remote diagnostics and control — features crucial to providing a cost-effective IPTV offering while maximizing consumer satisfaction.
The Westell UltraLine Series3 supports the most recent advances in wide area network (WAN) solutions. The UltraLine Series3 supports the highest rate VDSL2 profile capable of bidirectional 100Mb/s traffic over short distances. Other VDSL2 profiles supporting longer loops are provided for fiber-to-the-neighborhood topologies. The higher throughput VDSL2 30a band plan is well suited for multidwelling unit (MDU) applications and green field scenarios.
