NEC Corp. has selected Centillium Communications Inc.'s Entropia III VoIP media gateway solution to help power advanced Internet protocol (IP) services for NGN and 3G wireless infrastructure deployments for service providers in Japan.

"We look to Centillium to provide us with leading-edge technology and resources as we deliver NGN, fixed-mobile convergence and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) services that combine voice and data capabilities on both wireless and wireline networks," said Toshio Suzuki, assistant general manager of NEC Communication Systems. "Entropia III's superior processing power, low power consumption and technically advanced software features provide us with clear competitive advantages as we deploy both NGN and 3G wireless infrastructures for carriers in Japan and around the world."

According to Frost & Sullivan research analyst Govind Krishna Kumar, as widespread VoIP deployments are expected to continue for the next few years, Centillium, with its feature-rich Entropia III solution, is expected to accelerate service provider deployments.

"Our vision is to develop and deliver technology that will change communications in the consumer and enterprise sectors in ways never thought possible. Innovations in our Entropia VoIP media gateway, such as transcoding, interworking and seamless handoff implemented in a power-efficient, high-performance platform, are key to making this happen," said Faraj Aalaei, CEO and co-founder of Centillium.

The solution promises to provide an advantage over traditional, general-purpose DSPs by delivering more than two-and-a-half times the wireline and wireless codec capacity at less than half the power-per-channel. It also supports IMS Media Gateway Functions for CDMA/3GPP2 or GSM/3GPP applications, along with all wireline requirements. In addition, Entropia also supports IMS Media Resource Function Processors delivering such features as tones, unlimited announcements, conferencing and gaming.
