Marvell G.hn Chipset Drives Cambridge Industries Group's Home Networking Products

LAS VEGAS and SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Marvell (NASDAQ: MRVL) today announced that Cambridge Industries Group (CIG) has designed systems based on the Marvell G.hn chipset for home networking applications. Marvell is at the forefront of deploying G.hn-enabled products for fast and powerful connectivity in the delivery of multimedia content to Smart TVs and devices in the Smart Home. CIG joins a growing list of OEM partners in Marvell's second wave of G.hn design wins, accelerating the global adoption of the extensible ITU-T standard designed to provide connectivity at data rates up to 1 Gbit/s over standard forms of home wiring, including electrical wires, coaxial cables, twisted pair and optical fiber.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20100719/SF36559LOGO-b) CIG's G.hn systems, the HN-300-A1CN and the HN-100-A1E, are based on Marvell's GE-DW360F reference design, which includes the Marvell® 88LX3142 G.hn digital baseband processor, the Marvell 88LX2718 G.hn analog front end, and the Marvell 88E1510 Gigabit PHY with a complete TCP/IP protocol stack. In addition to the powerline-Ethernet bridge function, the CIG HN-300-A1CN provides a 12V DC power supply to power optical network terminal (ONT) gateways and set-top boxes (STBs) directly. The CIG HN-100-A1E is a powerline adapter design with a built-in pass-through power socket and easy plug-and-play installation. The Marvell G.hn chipset is ideal for distributing bandwidth-intensive and real-time applications like HD IPTV, VoIP, real-time gaming, and multi-room DVR.

"CIG is harmonizing networking transceiver technology across all types of home wiring to simplify home networking. With Marvell's G.hn silicon at the core of our powerline devices, CIG is anticipating high-quality performance levels for transmitting high-speed data and real-time applications anywhere in the connected home," said Rose Hu, vice president, marketing, CIG. "We are very pleased to be collaborating with a market leader like Marvell on delivering innovative products that power the Smart Home." Since its debut in September 2011, Marvell's G.hn silicon continues to garner industry support. Marvell's G.hn chipset won a Best Electronic Design Award in December 2011 and a Connected Home Award in April 2012. Demonstrations at CES and the Asia Plugfest in 2012 generated even more interest in Marvell's G.hn vision and potential applications of the technology. Most recently, in December 2012, Marvell became the first silicon vendor worldwide to have its silicon achieve full compliance certification from the HomeGrid Forum, paving the way for mass deployments by OEMs of G.hn systems based on the Marvell chipset.

"Marvell is excited to be working with industry leaders like CIG to bring advanced home networking applications based on G.hn to the Smart Home," said Winston Chen, vice president of the Smart Home Business Unit at Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. "Marvell's G.hn silicon unifies the home wireline network for distributing more content to more screens in more rooms throughout the home. The chipset is also a great ambassador for Marvell's complete portfolio of technologies to support total connectivity solutions for the always-on lifestyle." Marvell G.hn-powered products will be showcased at the Marvell booth (South Hall 3 - Booth 31423) and at the HomeGrid Forum booth (South Hall 1, Booth 21906) during CES at the Las Vegas Convention Center, January 8-11, 2013.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
