PMC-Sierra devices reduce cost of adding VoIP

Posted: 11 Nov 2004 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

PMC-Sierra Inc. announced a family of integrated devices that promises to reduce the cost of Voice-over-IP (VoIP) enabled broadband Customer Premises Equipment (CPE).

According to the company, its Multi-Service Processor (MSP) family, including the MSP2015, MSP2020, MSP4000 and MSP5000 devices, adds PSTN quality VoIP capabilities to Residential and SOHO broadband gateways, Analog Telephone Adapters (ATA) and small enterprise class IP-based PBXs.

"The VoIP assets that we have acquired have given us a leap forward into the broadband CPE market," said Greg Aasen, VP and GM for PMC-Sierra's Communication Products Division. "The MSP family is truly synergistic with our MIPS-Powered processor family and positions PMC-Sierra in the forefront of the triple play service revolution."

Utilizing a 32bit MIPS architecture microprocessor core and up to 2 Dual-MAC DSP cores, the MSP products integrate both the routing function and the VoIP CODEC into a single device while providing the necessary performance to handle voice channels and high speed data connections.

Supporting standard VoIP protocols, the devices are complemented by a comprehensive, field-proven voice-processing software suite, which provides best-in-class end-to-end latency, packet-loss tolerance and robust echo-cancellation, the company said. The suite also provides support for advanced call features such as 4-way conferencing, fax relay and intelligent signal classification.

The MSP2015, MSP2020, MSP4000 and MSP5000 are already available. A support package, including an evaluation/development platform, software development kit, board layout and design documentation, as well as application notes, is also available. Software development kits are available to support VxWorks, Linux or proprietary OSes.
