Fremont, Calif., March 22, 2007—Ikanos Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN), a leading developer and provider of Fiber Fast™ broadband solutions, today announced that InnoMedia, Inc., a leading supplier of Internet and broadband access Internet Protocol (IP) telephony solutions, will use Ikanos’ Fusiv® Vx150 network processors in its next generation Voice over IP (VoIP)-enabled residential gateways.
The Fusiv Vx150 is designed to offer unparalleled integration of full chain voice processing, signaling and network protocol processing on a single chip to support development of VoIP-enabled residential gateways. This architecture enables InnoMedia to build highly scalable platforms that will provide high packet throughput and meet specific service provider requirements with high quality rich media services, such as voice and video.
