DSP Group chipset solutions power Deutsche Telekom home gateway with HD voice

DSP Group, a provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged
communications at home, announced that its cordless chipset solutions are
powering a CAT-iq 2.0 certified home gateway (HGW) offered by Deutsche Telekom,
an integrated telecom company.

Deutsche Telekom’s upgraded Speedport W723V Type A home gateway is one
of the first HGWs to receive CAT-iq 2.0 certification from the DECT Forum.

Already used by Deutsche Telekom subscribers, the home gateway’s voice
service is based on the company’s digital cordless chipset reference design and
powered by DSP Group’s XceedR family of market-leading chipset solutions.

The reference design enables development of a low-cost, small
form-factor module that can be integrated into diverse broadband residential
gateways including Internet access devices (IADs), cable embedded multimedia
terminal adapters (EMTAs), and IP office PBXs.

Based on DSP Group‘s single-chip architecture, the
reference design reduces development risk, minimizes R&D costs, and lowers
time to market, while guaranteeing CAT-iq support.

“The recent increased proliferation of CAT-iq 2.0-certified home
telephony products is a significant market development, since it enables
multiple vendors to offer a range of interoperable devices compliant with
cordless technology’s next generation,” said Ulrich Grote, vice president,
Terminal Product Management Fixed-Line of Deutsche Telekom.

“CAT-iq 2.0 certification of our home gateways represents another
step in Deutsche Telekom’s all-IP strategy. In addition to ensuring HD-voice
quality, the certification enables us to provide our subscribers with enhanced
products and services, such as centralized directories and voicemail on the
Internet,” Grote added.

The XceedR family offers the industry’s highest flexibility, smallest
footprint and lowest system cost. In addition to delivering HD sound, XceedR
provides worldwide coverage with unmatched range, extended conversation time,
unique GUI functionality, and an enhanced listening experience.

“We are delighted to support Deutsche Telekom in making CAT-iq
2.0-compliant devices more accessible to the home,” said Oz Zimerman,
corporate VP of Marketing and Business Development at DSP Group.
