Altair, Macom, D2 Technologies and Alpha Networks Present Pioneering Android LTE Smart Home Gateway at MWC

New Gateway Offers LTE Broadband with VoLTE, Remote Control and Appliance Monitoring for Smart Home IoT Functionality

BARCELONA, Spain, Mobile World Congress, February 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Altair Semiconductor (http://www.altair-semi.com), the world's leading developer of high-performance, single-mode LTE chipsets, today announced that it has partnered with M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MTSI) (MACOM) and D2 Technologies to power the ASL-14331M, a new LTE gateway developed by Alpha Networks Inc.

The ASL-14331M pioneers a new generation of "Smart Home" devices, offering broadband Internet connectivity. This enables Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and smart-home functionality that allows for remote control and monitoring of various appliances and sensors in the home.

The solution is based on Altair's award winning FourGee-3100/6200 LTE solution, MACOM's recently acquired Mindspeed® Comcerto® 2000 Application Processor, and D2's vPort GW 2.0 IMS VoLTE client software.

"Over the years, Alpha Networks has accumulated valuable experience in networking design and development. Our exceptional capability in this industry can be proven in multiple areas such as evolving network technologies and diversifying applications," said Harrison Chang, President of Alpha Networks. "The ASL-14331M is capable of integrating all home connected devices, and seamlessly connecting to cloud services. It simply transforms any family's traditional gateway into a window to the cloud and a hub of automatic controls. Alpha Networks is pleased to work with Altair, MACOM and D2 to provide brand new home networking solutions and create a diverse and convenient smart home environment for users."

"This exciting product, which extends LTE Internet connectivity to the home-control domain, demonstrates the types of innovation users can expect to see as the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes a reality," said Eran Eshed, Co-Founder and VP of Marketing and Business Development at Altair. "The best-in-class performance and maturity of our single-mode LTE chipset made it a natural choice for powering this innovative new product. We are pleased to be part of this successful ecosystem collaboration."

"We are pleased to participate in this cutting-edge demonstration," said Laurent Hendrichs, Director of Marketing, Communications Processors, at MACOM. "Our Comcerto 2000 processors are well known for high-speed networking in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) routers. With outstanding Java performance, a comprehensive set of security features, and an innovative power management architecture, they are also ideally suited for applications such as smart home and security gateways. Thanks to this new Alpha Networks design, our customers now have access to a compelling platform that will allow them to tap into the emerging LTE broadband and IoT markets."

"We are excited to partner with industry leaders Alpha, Altair and MACOM to develop a product that is at the forefront of VoLTE enabled IoT connectivity," said Doug Makishima, Chief Operating Officer at D2 Technologies.  "This collaboration exemplifies how D2's standards-compliant vPort 4G VoLTE software, with proven interoperability with multiple operators, enables  fast time to market for VoLTE enabled Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and smart home router CPE applications."

D2 Technologies' vPort GW 2.0 IMS VoLTE client software offers broadband service providers a carrier grade, interoperable solution to enable HD quality VoLTE in wireless client devices. The embedded client is fully IR.92 VoLTE compliant and includes support for IMS session initiation protocol (SIP), short message service (SMS) over IP, short message peer-to-peer (SMPP), ISIM and USIM authentication and registration, XCAP call supplemental services, and key softDSP voice engine components such as voice CODECs, LEC, CID, DTMF, Fax and more for FXS telephone ports.

The ASL-14331M will be demoed at Mobile World Congress at: Hall 1, Stand 1A18MR

Altair representatives are available to meet at Mobile World Congress in rooms 5L35MR and 5L38MR.
