PMC-Sierra Adds Processors for Network Storage and Media Servers

PMC-Sierra announced the addition of network storage devices to its portfolio of Multi-Service Processor (MSP) solutions. The new MSP devices -- MSP2200, MSP2202, MSP2204 and MSP2206 -- are storage-optimized processors integrating key features such as hard disk drive (HDD) controllers, while providing superior performance and significantly lower costs compared to general-purpose processors.

PMC-Sierra said the new family of network storage processors represents a natural extension to its VoIP solutions for the digital home and office.

"The expansion of triple play-bundled services from carriers, along with the rapid growth of content-intensive applications such as digital music, photos, recorded TV shows and home movies, is driving the demand for easy-to-use storage solutions that must seamlessly integrate into home networks," said Dino Bekis, vice president of marketing and applications for PMC-Sierra's Communications Products Division.
