The TNETC731 leverages TI's Puma-3 DOCSIS chip, TNETV901 voice DSP, and
WLAN TNETW1350A 802.11b/g based mPCI card. In addition, an integrated CableHome and residential gateway software
package, including NAT/firewall and advanced routing options, is available from Ashley Laurent.
The reference design comes complete with hardware and software and is easily software upgradeable to support
additional features. It is Wi-Fi® certified, ensuring that customers will be able to quickly deploy a
high-performance, standards compliant wireless networking product.
"TI's extensive broadband and
residential gateway expertise enables us to offer the most complete and advanced solution in a single platform, so
our customers can meet and exceed service providers needs for a differentiated and easy-to-deploy gateway," said
Irvind Ghai, director, worldwide marketing for TI's cable group.
The TNETC731 VoCable gateway reference design is available for OEM/ODM use today.
