Ikanos Communications Inc., a developer of Fibre Fast broadband solutions, announced that it has completed the acquisition of the network processor and ADSL ASIC product lines from Analog Devices Inc. (ADI).

The estimated Rs.137.18 crores ($31 million) cash acquisition broadens Ikanos' market by adding the Fusiv line of residential gateway processors and Eagle line of ADSL2+ modem products, along with associated product development and support teams. In addition, Ikanos plans to offer VDSL-based residential gateway solutions that integrate the Fusiv processor with its CleverConnect and FxS VDSL2 products.

"This acquisition is a logical step towards our goal of enabling Ikanos to offer a full suite of interactive broadband solutions," said Rajesh Vashist, president and CEO of Ikanos. "The Fusiv processor delivers class-leading performance and we believe that it will integrate well with our VDSL solutions. Meanwhile, the Eagle products allow us to offer ADSL-based gateways for carriers who want to offer a broader range of products to their customers."

Ikanos expects to have new gateway designs that combine the Fusiv products with its VDSL chipsets.
