Network Processor for CPE
Supports Multiple WAN Technologies
INTEL's GRX 300 CPE network processor product family offers a paradigm shift by introducing INTEL's AnyWAN™ technology. GRX 300 is "WAN-agnostic" and supports multiple WAN technologies for broadband access, connected via the appropriate PHY/modem ICs. Key features are:
- Highest system integration and scalability with dedicated external devices
- Support for a high-performance CPU architecture with dedicated accelerator for embedded 802.11n WLAN
- Wire-speed routing performance at zero CPU load, supported by Smart Acceleration for guaranteed session bandwidth & QoS (e.g. IPTV)
Fully Scalable and Flexible Gigabit-Ethernet Gateway
With built-in 2.4 GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, an integrated Gigabit Ethernet switch (and PHYs), and integrated VoIP engine and codecs, INTEL's GRX 300 offers a high level of integration on the LAN side. System developers can achieve further product differentiation by using the GRX 300's wide range of interfaces, such as PCIe, USB, RGMII and SPI to connect various 802.11ac 5GHz solutions or home automation technologies such as DECT ULE, Bluetooth or Zigbee.
The AnyWAN™ Technology Reduces Product Development Time and Risks
Two acceleration CPU engines and one offload engine guarantee enough space on the main CPU core for the application software. The GRX 300 series in combination with the universal DSL-PHY VRX 318 enables system developers to easily design all variants of DSL gateway platforms. Thanks to the AnyWAN™ concept, system developers can reuse all their previous development efforts to build LTE gateways, Ethernet Wi-Fi routers or GPON HGUs by using the same design and exchanging WAN frontend/modem technology. The rest of the platform design (LAN interfaces, CPE network processor, system software) can remain unchanged. This reduces product development time and risks as well as development costs. Today, GRX 300 and the AnyWan™ concept are used in several DSL, LTE, GPON and Ethernet gateway designs in both carrier and retail markets.
