Performance Technologies Inc. (PTI) released a flexible product designed for equipment manufacturers and system integrators looking to bridge traditional TDM and emerging IP markets.

Suited for both PSTN and IP telephony applications, the IPnexus CPC308 TDM/IP Edge processor is available with NexusWare Core, the company's Linux-based board support package (bsp) that provides a powerful development, integration and management environment.

NexusWare Core features a suite of carrier-grade device drivers for full access to onboard resources, as well as an easy to use application programming interface (API). It provides integrated drivers for communicating over TCP/IP and is capable of operating within any host system that supports TCP/IP, without the need of bus-based device drivers. Cross development support for Linux, Windows and Solaris platforms is also provided.

The eight-port CPC308 shares a common architectural design with the company's powerful CPC324 TDM/IP Edge Communications Processor, which also allows system integrators to converge both TDM and IP networks onto a single sub-system.

"We designed the CPC308 to fulfill customer demand for a flexible, lower price-point alternative to our powerful, 24-port CPC324 processor," said Steve Wigent, access product manager for PTI. "The CPC308 is ideal for system integrators seeking a high speed edge processor to converge new and existing networks, yet who do not necessarily require the significant capacity offered by the CPC324."

Featuring eight fully programmable T1/E1/J1 interfaces and a powerful 667MHz PowerPC processor, the CPC308 offers a comprehensive design that is suitable for supporting lower density voice, data, signaling and monitoring applications, all via one architecture. This new device is optimized to handle voice circuits for protocol processing or for transfers between the H.110 bus, PCI bus, Ethernet or the onboard PTMC sites.

Pricing for the CPC308 starts at $5,795.
