G.hn Chipset

The Marvell G.hn chipsets family helps the connected home realize optimal network performance over any wired medium including powerline, coaxial cable, phoneline/twisted pair and plastic optical fiber. Offering full home connectivity at 1 Gbps and 2 Gbps PHY rates, Marvell’s G.hn chipsets represent an ideal solution for wireline distribution of bandwidth-intensive and real-time applications like HD-IPTV, VoIP, gaming, video surveillance, multi-room DVR, and more. The new 2Gbps chipset offers support for the new ITU-T G.hn 200MHz channel bandwidth, allowing for higher data transmission rates through the multitude of supported connections that G.hn already offers. Marvell’s 2 Gbps G.hn chipsets will enable vendors to build a new generation of solutions for wired IPTV delivery and 802.11ac extenders that will double the throughput and increase the range of existing products. 

Key Features and Benefits

chipsets Marvell’s 88LX5153 digital baseband processor and Marvell’s 88LX2730 analog front-end chipsets are fully ITU-T G.hn standard compliant, enabling system vendors to develop 100% interoperable solutions:
