|TI HIGHLIGHTS ITS CONTINUED SUCCESS IN THE RESIDENTIAL GATEWAY
DALLAS – Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) announced recent successes in the
growing residential gateway (RG) market. By the end of the third quarter, TI expects to have shipped over 100
million DSL CPE and CO ports and 30 million ports of its flagship RG platform, TI’s AR7 modem-on-chip, since it was
deployed in 2003. Leading manufacturers such as AVM, Actiontec, Arcadyan, Aztech Systems Ltd., NETGEAR, Netopia,
Siemens and Westell incorporate TI’s AR7 family delivering superior performance. This extensive installed base has
established TI as the leader in the rapidly emerging RG market.
“Traditionally consumers have relied on simple,
Ethernet-based modems for their computing needs, however the market is experiencing increased demand for more
integrated, sophisticated residential gateways incorporating wireless, voice and video functionality,” said Dennis
Rauschmayer, director of marketing for TI’s Residential Gateway and Embedded Systems business unit. “Based on this
trend, we anticipate shipments of RGs to grow rapidly over the next three to five years. We expect our own shipments
of gateways with wireless and voice functionality to increase significantly this year.”
growth of these integrated RGs provides opportunities for additional semiconductor content,” said Joyce Putscher
with analyst firm In-Stat. “TI is in a unique position to meet this need through its comprehensive portfolio of
solutions that span the broadband, wireless and consumer electronics space. By converging these technologies, TI
allows service providers to offer new capabilities to consumers, grow their subscriber bases and increase revenues
into the future.”
TI’s Flagship RG Platform
TI´s RG designs are based on the
market-leading AR7 modem-on-chip that allows for future system-level integration containing common hardware and
software architectures. The designs integrate key technologies from TI´s comprehensive broadband portfolio including
wireless LAN (WLAN) and Voice over IP (VoIP). The AR7W router integrates TI’s IEEE 802.11 b/g solution and the AR7VW
voice gateway provides VoIP over DSL. In addition, the AR7VWi gateway combines DSL, 802.11 b/g wireless home
networking and VoIP into a single platform. These ADSL2+ RG solutions allow manufacturers to develop cost-optimized,
differentiated gateways that are operator quality and deployment ready due to extensive interoperability testing.
TI is committed to delivering innovative solutions as part of its expanding residential gateway
portfolio, as its AR7 solution and extensions for wireless and voice are available in volume production today. TI
also plans to unveil additional AR7 family extensions later this year, along with its next generation residential
gateway platform to address video.
Texas Instruments Broadband Solutions
OEMs developing broadband communications solutions, TI's advanced signal processing-based silicon and software
platforms deliver the optimal performance, lower power consumption, and system-level integration required to rapidly
deploy differentiated next-generation products for cable modems, digital subscriber line (xDSL) modems, integrated
access devices (IADs), VoIP gateways, carrier infrastructure, and home and office wireless networking. See
