Lantiq, a supplier of broadband access and home networking technologies, and Netgem, a technology provider of innovative video solutions for the connected entertainment market, have revealed Hybridge, a combined xDSL and LTE Residential Gateway.
The rising need to access high-definition video streams, including on-demand and OTT content, on multiple screens leads to an ever growing demand for bandwidth that is not always available to all consumers on existing copper networks. Hybridge addresses this demand by combining xDSL and LTE WAN, which enables aggregated bandwidths reaching up to 200 Mbps at home.
Hybridge is a high-end VDSL gateway that includes the Lantiq DSLTE technology – based on the latest AnyWan GRX300 Network processor family. On this platform, the Netgem Quattuor advanced LTE mobile hotspot can be docked to provide the additional bandwidth.
David Remaud, Head of Mobility Business Line for Netgem: “With more than 15 years of experience delivering connected home services in hybrid environments, we have a strong belief that technologies need to be combined to address the surge of both multi-screen and high quality video services. We are particularly proud to partner with Lantiq to develop this breakthrough DSLTE Residential Gateway. With Hybridge, operators will be able to provide a fluid and high quality multi-screen video experience to any subscribers anywhere.”
