Broadband Solution Provider Also Announces WireSpeed(TM) Routing Technology at Berlin Forum
AURORA, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTL) today marks the European debut of the UltraLine(TM) Series3 multi-service residential gateway at the Broadband World Forum in Berlin, Germany.
The gateway features WireSpeed(TM) routing technology, integrating Infineon's TwinPass-E dual-core network processor to support simultaneous delivery of high-bandwidth applications like IPTV, VoD and other customized digital services. The UltraLine(TM) Series3 is among the highest performing, most reliable and flexible platforms for delivering comprehensive broadband services.
Westell, a leading provider of convergence gateways and broadband access solutions, will demonstrate the UltraLine(TM) Series3 and other cutting edge solutions at the Broadband World Forum, Oct. 9-11 in Berlin. Learn more at the Westell stand #5029, in the Estrel Convention Center.
The UltraLine(TM) Series3 is one of the only residential gateways in its class optimized for wired and wireless applications. The network processor employs two powerful CPUs that can be individually programmed to support a wide range of consumer applications, including media sharing, home monitoring and remote device management.
"For example, one CPU can deliver a flawless IP video experience while the other CPU coordinates the transfer of digital media from a connected storage device to a media player," said Joe DeCarolis, Westell director of engineering. "These supplementary applications give our customers a platform to deliver new broadband services."
"The UltraLine(TM) Series3 stands as the most robust residential gateway on the market with its support for multiple service delivery enabled by the Infineon TwinPass-E network processor," said Imran Hajimusa, vice president of wireline products for Infineon Technologies North America. "We are pleased to work with Westell to offer a powerful and flexible residential gateway for their customers," said Hajimusa.
In addition to unparalleled routing performance, reliable, high-speed wireless coverage is critical to many emerging services such as IP video and in-home media sharing. The UltraLine(TM) Series3's integrated SmartBeam(TM) smart antenna ensures optimal Wi-Fi coverage and bandwidth and prevents wireless interference from typical sources such as cordless telephone systems. For maximum performance, the UltraLine(TM) Series3 employs 802.11n wireless with multiple antennas. It will simultaneously support two wireless interfaces, 802.11g and 802.11n, providing outstanding media streaming performance without compromising backward compatibility with existing 802.11g and 802.11b client devices.
