LOS ALTOS, Calif., Oct. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group®, Inc. (Nasdaq:DSPG) a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, announced today the integration of its ULE-based chipset with home gateways based on Intel's Puma™ 6 SoC. The solution uses DSP Group's advanced DECT / ULE SoC integrated with the Intel Puma platform.
DSP Group's cutting-edge ULE solution provides full home coverage on a dedicated interference-free RF spectrum. In addition, the ULE-based solution enables rich voice and visual content to be transferred from nodes to the base and vice versa, providing a unique IoT solution that is unparalleled by other short range RF technology. The ULE solution is easily software-upgradable from standard DECT, which already exists in over than 25 million home gateways. This eliminates the need to add a second OTT (Over-the-Top) box - reducing overall service provider OPEX.
"Extending our mutual work with Intel from standard DECT to ULE-enabled home gateways came as a natural step for both parties," said Raz Kivelevich-Carmi, VP of Marketing and Business Development at DSP Group. "Reutilizing DSP Group's DCX81 DECT / ULE solution, SoC and firmware provided a very fast time-to-market reference solution for our joint customers, addressing the need of the ever-changing IoT market," he concluded.
"DSP Group's ULE IoT solution enhances the Puma 6 platform beyond HD Voice with the ability to manage security and home automation nodes within the house," said Bob Ferreira, General Manager, Product and Platform Marketing in Intel's Service Provider Division. "By remote software upgrade the gateway interacts with IoT platform provider Yoga Systems' cloud service, allowing users to monitor and control their home from afar," he continued.
The solution will be presented at the Broadband World Forum and the upcoming European Utility Week at DSP Group's meeting room
