Freescale introduces industry’s first 10G Wi-Fi enabled home gateway solution



Freescale semiconductor has released the QorlQ LS1043A residential gateway, claimed to be the industry’s first 10Gbit/s Internet and 10Gbit/s Wi-Fi enabled home gateway solution aimed at driving multi-gigabit broadband access toward mainstream adoption.

The QorlQ LS1043A was developed in collaboration with Quantenna Communications and features a quad-core processor based on 64-bit ARMv8 technology, together with Quantenna’s QSR10G 10G Wave 3 802.11ac Wi-Fi product family.

The device is said to deliver 1.6GHz of performance and dissipating typical power down to 5W, the LS1043A is suited for broadband gateway applications including next-generation edge networking equipment such as Fibre and xDSL residential gateways, branch routers, security appliances and SND/NFV edge platforms.

“Delivering on the promise of Quantenna’s 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi product family demands a level of packet processing performance that was previously the exclusive domain of high-end enterprise networking equipment, yet today Freescale is uniquely positioned to bring power-efficient, multi-gigabit performance to the home,” said Nikolay Guenov, director of Product Management for Freescale’s Digital Networking group.

The device is also said to feature virtualisation hardware, supports over-the-air software updates with Freescale’s thrust architecture, and offloads latency sensitive applications for optimised local performance with classification and traffic management hardware.

Freescale offers a full-featured Linux OpenWRT-based residential gateway Application Solution Kit, which implements low-level routing and security acceleration functions, and a CodeWarrior toolchain.
