Mindspeed and Lionic have together developed a solution for broadband-home-router-design powered by Mindspeed's Comcerto 2000 communication processor and Lionic's Talos III software development kit (SDK). This SDK supports enterprise-class Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology for residential broadband applications.
Other supported features include advanced application-based QoS, advanced parental controls, keyword filtering, URL filtering and antivirus technology.
They are showcasing this product in a live quality of service (QoS) demonstration at the 13th Annual Broadband World Forum in Amsterdam this week at the Lionic's booth.
The features going to be demonstrated includes:
High-performance scanning, taking full advantage of the integrated DPI engine
Traffic visualization and traffic leveling for the enablement of tiered service plans
Device identification for smart home network control and the prioritization of traffic
Hardware DPI offloading Layer 7 applications
Application-specific QoS and control for OTT voice, video and gaming flows
"The DPI engine integrated in the Comcerto 2000 is the perfect vehicle to introduce deep packet inspection-based technologies in the home," said Eric Lu, chief executive officer at Lionic. "Lionic is excited to be working with Mindspeed and leading BHR vendors to enable next-generation applications and services."
Dual 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor integrated Comcerto 2000 is suggested as ideal chip for designing broadband communication equipment both for home use as well as for small-to-medium business (SMB) use. Mindspeed's Comcerto 2000 processors use intelligent offloading to run wire-rate Gigabit-per-second IPv6 NAT and firewall applications, while keeping their 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processors fully available for executing value-added applications, from OEMs or service providers.
