SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group®, (Nasdaq:DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, announced today that DSP Group's DECT/CAT-iq 2.0 DCX81 System-on-a-Chip (SoC) is integrated in Swisscom's new gateway products.
DSP Group's DCX family of highly-integrated single-chip DECT solutions cost effectively delivers full home coverage with multi-line, multi-handset support and crystal clear high definition voice (HD Voice). The SoC is embedded with certified CAT-iq 2.0 firmware, offering a rich set of advanced features, including phone book and call list synchronization.
The DCX SoC's in-field software upgradability allows providers like Swisscom to rapidly bring to market products complying not only with emerging standards like CAT-iq 2.1 and 3.0, but also with the ULE (Ultra Low Energy) standard for home automation. ULE support by residential gateways is forecasted to enable a vast market of Ultra-Low-energy devices for home control, security and monitoring.
