It's designed for "any content, anywhere" multiscreen services. The gateway provides downstream bonded DOCSIS 3.0 data speeds with wireless and wired networking over 802.11ac and MoCA 2.0. It will also support two wired ports for HD Voice and DECT 6.0/Cat IQ 2.0 cordless handsets. Content security options include CableCARD, multiple DRMs and downloadable software-based conditional access systems.

The gateway combines Pace's architecture and device design with Broadcom system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions, including the BCM3128 Full-Band Capture Cable Multi-Receiver, the BCM3335 Quad Transcoding Hybrid IP Gateway, and the BCM4360 5 GHz WiFi solution.
