TI Predicts Broadband Business will Continue to Grow in 2004

4/22/2004 - Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE:TXN), a leading provider of software and silicon for broadband communications equipment worldwide, presented an update on the success of its Broadband Communications Group, which includes products based on cable modem, DSL, WLAN and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technologies. In 2003, TI was the only company that supported each of these broadband platforms and held #1 or #2 market position in each segment.

"We see 2004 as TI's year to expand the broadband market with products that take broadband beyond high speed internet access," said Joseph Crupi, vice president and general manager, Texas Instruments Broadband Communications Group. "With broadband growth continuing around the world consumers are interested in using broadband communications and entertainment applications with mobility being a key feature."

Crupi added, "In anticipation of this demand, we have built core broadband technology expertise since 1997 and through this experience, are able to provide unparalleled integration and convergence not only in broadband but across wireless and consumer electronics technologies. The result is that our customers are able to add flexibility and functionality to their product lines to meet operator needs and users enjoy easy access to broadband anytime, anywhere."

VoIP has already been characterized by many as one of the most significant technology trends for 2004 and is quickly proving its ability to transform the broadband industry. The worldwide market for enterprise IP telephony grew at a 50 percent rate just a year ago, while residential VoIP growth is projected to take off in the next twelve months(1). With its latest innovations, Texas Instruments is driving today's voice technology as well as applying it across all broadband platforms to develop tomorrow's products. TI's expertise in each major broadband technology and its relationships with companies such as Cisco Systems, Sonus Networks and Siemens ICN have been key to its leadership.
