The Industry’s first 10G Home Gateway Reference design, featuring 10Gbps WAN connection, 10G Wave3 Wi-Fi and quad-core ARM 64-bit performance to 1.6GHz





• Industry’s first residential gateway solution to support 10Gbps internet access + 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi

• Based on a quad-core 64-bit ARMv8 communications processor & Quantenna QSR10G wireless technology


Targeted performance and power efficiency

  • 2-4x ARM Cortex-A53 cores, over 20,000 CoreMarks CPU Performacne
  • Leading packet processing offload technology: greater than 5G IPsec performacne
  • Proven support for Mulitrate PHY support
  • Proven support for 10G+ high performance applications, NAT, IP Forwarding

Purpose-built for fan-less, small form factor networking applications

  • Ideal for 1-10GbE Gateways, high end consumer wireless routers, services branch routers, SDN & NFV edge platforms, industrial PLC and control, security appliances
  • High level of integration for low Bill of Materials
  • Suite of production ready software applications
  • Advanced virtualization hardware and software for vCPE, TEE and secure VM applications


Next Generation Gateway Requirements


  • Residential Customers demanding ever higher bandwidth up to 10G PON
  • Support for latest WiFi formats and data-rates is critical for 802.11ac and beyond
  • Video via OTT / IP delivery
  • Video playback on multiple device formats around the home:
  • Smartphone, tablet, smartTV, PC
  • UHDTV deployment, managing bandwidth & QoS will be challenging
  • Set-Top-Box will be replaced by headless gateway with wireless distribution of content in the home
  • IoT services such as security monitoring & home automation increasingly important
  • Open platform for SDN and NFV services
