Broadcom Corporation has announced its new Intensi-fi XLR wireless LAN (WLAN) VoIP router system-on-a-chip (SoC) platform solutions with enhanced features that include 3G support and best-in-class power consumption. System OEMs can now leverage Broadcom wireless silicon integration and VoIP software to develop advanced routers. 3G functionality can be added to these new platform solutions using a USB interface, bringing Internet and network services to homes where broadband is otherwise unavailable.

Broadcom’s 802.11n design platform with external 3G support includes router options for low-end to high-end solutions as follows:

  • The Broadcom BCM5356U (a single-stream 2.4GHz IEEE 802.11n router SoC solution)
  • The BCM5358U (a dual-stream 2.4GHz IEEE 802.11n router SoC solution)
  • The BCM5358 (a dual-stream 2.4GHz IEEE 802.11n router SoC solution with VoIP support)
  • The BCM47186 (a dual-stream 2.4GHz  IEEE 802.11n high-performance Gigabit Ethernet router SoC solution with VoIP support)

To provide a strong wireless backbone for the networked home, Broadcom optimized this new 802.11n router platform with Accelerange technology — a set of hardware and software enhancements that ensures more robust wireless coverage.
