Legerity Introduces VoiceEdge 790 Series Carrier-Class Line Interface

3/30/2004 - Legerity, Inc. announced the details of the VE790 Series, its new VoiceEdgeTM Architecture product family for carrier-class applications. The VE790 analog line interface chipsets are the first ever to integrate the advanced line testing functionality necessary for carrier-class packet voice deployments. The revolutionary design of the VE790 Series dramatically reduces engineering effort and enhances performance of access infrastructure equipment and will catapult carrier deployment of the Packet Voice Network through 2004 and 2005.

The new chipset integrates sophisticated line testing functionality into the silicon, which until now was performed by expensive dedicated hardware called test heads. This integration allows for the complete elimination of expensive test heads in mid to high line count systems and provides line test functionality in low line count systems for the first time. Service providers can now solve most customer issues from the office by executing remote line test measurements, eliminating costly truck rolls and shortening the response time to the customer while dramatically saving on OPEX costs.

“The VE790 Series is truly revolutionary – redesigned from the ground up specifically for the unique needs of packet voice deployments,” said Rick Beale, senior marketing director for Legerity. The VE790 Series, for the first time, provides carriers the necessary foundation with which to build the new voice infrastructure.”

The new chipset is also the first ever to integrate all the functionality required to control and manage multiple telephone lines on a single line card. Functions such as ring sequencing, caller ID sequencing and call progress tone are handled within the chipset, thus dramatically reducing the engineering effort to add voice to DSLAM systems.

The VE790 Series is focused on carrier applications, including central office, DSLAM, DLC and FTTP. It is designed to compliment the VE880 Series, the other half of the VoiceEdge Architecture focused on consumer applications, such as voice-enabled cable and DSL modems. The VE790 series is targeted at $3.00 per line in high volume.
