Broadcom Completes World's First Microsoft® Mediaroom™ Client Integration With New Embedded Wireless High Definition Set-Top Box Solution
Broadcom Delivers Production-Ready, Carrier-Grade Wi-Fi for Whole-Home High Definition Video Distribution
The completion of this Mediaroom wireless client integration highlights the continued commitment by
- According to
ABI Research, approximately 15.5 million STBs will ship with Wi-Fi in 2015 — growing at 35 percent annually from 2010 to 2015.
- Microsoft Mediaroom now supports BCM4717V-based modules on BCM7405 platforms to enable Wi-Fi as a deployment option.
- Carrier-grade Wi-Fi means that the radio, physical layer (PHY) device, media access controller (MAC), and application layers have been optimized to minimize packet loss, provide whole-home coverage, and minimize video glitches as a result of interference or changing wireless conditions.
- The BCM4717V IPTV solution provides:
- Primary operation on the 5GHz band to allow the greatest frequency agility.
- 2.4GHz is also supported for communication with legacy devices.
- MII/GMII connection to the IPTV host SoC such as the BCM7405.
- A superior MIMO radio and digital architecture, coupled with a high power front-end to provide excellent whole-home wireless coverage.
- Automatic detection of multimedia streams to enable QoS processing.
- Advanced interference mitigation features to ensure robust and reliable wireless video transport.
- Added intelligence to enable reliable multicast traffic over a wireless network.
- Support for three direct antenna inputs inside of the STB, along with intelligent algorithms to increase performance regardless of the location and orientation of the client device.
- The Broadcom BCM7405 set-top box SoC solution previously completed Microsoft Mediaroom wired client integration.

Important factors that may cause such a difference for
- the rate at which our present and future customers and end-users adopt
Broadcom's technologies and products in the markets for next generation DTV, PC, cable, satellite, IPTV and terrestrial set-top box applications;
- general economic and political conditions and specific conditions in the markets we address, including the volatility in the technology sector and semiconductor industry, trends in the broadband communications markets in various geographic regions, including seasonality in sales of consumer products into which our products are incorporated;
- the timing, rescheduling or cancellation of significant customer orders and our ability, as well as the ability of our customers, to manage inventory; and the gain or loss of a key customer, design win or order.
