Cisco’s DDR2200 residential gateway – Voice, video, data goodness
Cisco passed their versatile DDR2200 residential gateway through the FCC today. This device makes the most out of your DSL connection – it provides wired or wireless G Internet connections for your PC, voice calling for a landline, or television services for a cable/IP set-top-box. With support for HPNA, the device can also network multiple clients, including DVRs, TVs, or game consoles.
That’s a ton of functionality for a single box, and I’m sure it’ll attract a variety of ISPs, cable and telecon providers since it supports such a wide range of services and devices. Most notably, it provides service providers with an upgrade path to IPTV, a big benefit as this service rolls out to more users.
No word on pricing or availability yet, but I’d expect to see more of this device from service providers soon.
