Mindspeed Milestone: Five Millionth Multi-Core Packet Processor for CPE

Mindspeed Technologies announced company milestone: five million Comcerto multi-core system-on-chip (SoC) embedded packet processors for customer premises equipment (CPE) have been shipped to date. The processors are used in residential gateways and broadband home routers (BHRs).

Mindspeed recently extended its Comcerto 1000 family to enable a new category of CPE service offload platform (SOP) hardware that can be used with existing BHRs in the connected home. "SOP Boxes" will make it easier and more cost-effective for service providers to partner with best-of-breed home automation, utility monitoring, security, healthcare and networked appliance vendors to deliver cloud-based applications that can be provisioned and securely managed using their current hardware and software infrastructure.
