Performance Technologies Inc. (PTI), a developer of integrated platforms, components and software solutions, introduced its CPC324 TDM/IP Edge Communications Processor, touted to be the most powerful and flexible network access processor on the market.

The PICMG 2.16-compatible CPC324 offers high speed packet processing and flexible DSP configurability for today's converged communications applications. Packaged by the company to be the first true TDM/IP network bridging product optimized for performance and flexibility, the new processor provides an architecture that supports voice, data, signaling and monitoring applications. Used in conjunction with PTI's Advanced Managed Platform products, the CPC324 enables customers to integrate high availability platforms for TDM interfacing.

"Our CPC324 processor cost-effectively replaces the functionality currently provided by lower density network access products in today's 2.16 and CompactPCI backplanes, allowing system integrators to converge both TDM and IP networks onto a single sub-system," said Steve Wigent, PTI product manager. "Coupled with extensive processing power and our NexusWare development and operating environment, the CPC324 minimizes design costs, simplifies field sparing and reduces overall cost-of-ownership for the end-user." Additionally, the NexusWare allows users to easily integrate applications and protocols within their system.

Based on a high performance 800MHz PowerPC processor, the CPC324 offers an on-board octal Gigabit Ethernet switch, full Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI), two PTMC expansion sites and 24 fully channelized T1/E1/J1 spans supporting 768 software-programmable channels.

When used with the company's DSP-based products, such as the MTN4200 Media Processing Module, the CPC324 can expand to function as a media IP blade, media gateway blade or media server blade. The CPC324 processor will be generally available next month, with pricing starting at $7,995.
