To beef up its smart home business, Intel agreed to acquire Lantiq, a broadband access and home networking company. The move is expected to enable Intel to extend its existing cable residential gateway business into the telecom residential gateway and access network markets that include DSL, fiber, retail and Internet of Things smart routers. “By 2018, we expect more than 800 million broadband connected households worldwide,” said Kirk Skaugen, svp/gm of Intel’s client computing group. The combined team looks to have a variety of connectivity products and home cloud technologies for OEMs, service providers and companies developing apps for smart homes.
