Mindspeed Pitches Comcerto 300xv VoIP Processors

Mindspeed Technologies announced its "Comcerto" 300xv family of VoIP processing devices for integrated VoIP media, signaling and control processing in low-to-medium density next-generation network (NGN), IP multimedia system (IMS) and IP-private branch exchange (IP-PBX) equipment.

Mindspeed's Comcerto 300xv system-on-chip (SoC) leverages the company's multi-core Comcerto 300 architecture and reduces bill of material (BOM) costs for PON multi-dwelling unit (MDU) equipment and IP-PBX systems. Platforms using the Comcerto 300xv SoC retain full software feature and application programming interface (API) compatibility with prior Comcerto 300 designs. The software also supports wideband voice codecs for high-definition VoIP applications.

The Comcerto 300xv device's two ARM processors are coupled through shared memory to create a complete media stream processing (MSP) subsystem. One processor is paired to DSP resources and integrated memory to optimize real-time, low-latency voice processing, while the other is dedicated to control and signaling processing (CSP) functions. The inclusion of two independently configurable 10/100/1000 Ethernet interfaces enables the Comcerto 300xv device to support a rich set of configuration options, and allows direct control and management of Ethernet switches or PON media access control (MAC) functions. Comcerto 300xv devices are available in six performance levels to support from four to more than 128 G.711/20ms channels with echo cancellation, tone detection and other POTS-focused features.

The Comcerto 300xv is sampling now and scheduled for volume production in the second half of 2010.
