TI Latest VoIP SoC, Software Enable Fast-Track to Residential Applications

3/7/2006 - Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) [NYSE:TXN], announced its latest Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) system on a chip, the TNETV1061, providing advanced VoIP and data routing features for the rapidly growing VoIP market. The DSP-based solution is ideal for residential applications where voice quality, scalability, low cost and reliability are essential for service provider deployments. Manufacturers will benefit from an optimized solution that significantly reduces the bill of materials, while providing a significant improvement in performance and a full suite of advanced VoIP call features.

TIís newest residential VoIP solution integrates the companyís market-leading Telogy SoftwareTM for high-quality VoIP with the strength of TI DSPs for real-time signal processing. The complete software and silicon solution is anchored by the TNETV1061ís dual processor architecture, ideal for simultaneous real-time voice processing and data traffic under heavy load conditions. Whether designing an analog terminal adapter, VoIP gateway/router, VoIP-enabled 802.11b/g access point/router or broadband cordless phone, the TNETV1061 solution provides the processing power and offers the software features demanded by both service providers and consumers.

"The broadband customer premise equipment (CPE) market grew by 20 percent worldwide last year, in large part due to a heavier focus on and greater consumer interest in residential devices to deliver more advanced services," said Joyce Putscher, principal analyst, In-Stat. "As consumers continue adopting VoIP for its cost-savings benefits, they will certainly look for additional features from their broadband gateways and TI is well-positioned to deliver these advanced products to the industry."

High Quality Voice, Security for Consumers
To aid manufacturers in bringing products to market quickly, TIís TNETV1061 solution supports a complete suite of voice and network protocols, call features and XML-based configuration and remote management. The TNETV1061 also provides consumers with advanced security features such as Secure RTP and SIP TLS while maintaining the voice channel densities required for residential products. This new product incorporates TIís PIQUATM embedded IP quality management technology, offering real-time monitoring of IP services. PIQUA technology allows service providers to proactively assess voice quality parameters and dynamically adapt to changing network conditions to enhance the subscriber experience.

"As service providers rapidly expand their residential VoIP offerings, the TNETV1061 provides the additional processing power for emerging voice and data routing requirements while meeting the ever-present economical price pressures in retail and customer premise solutions." said Fred Zimmerman, executive director, customer premises solutions, at TI. "TI is the only company that can offer a VoIP solution that will allow service providers a high-quality, scalable and reliable solution at the right price point for the consumer space."

Converging Broadband Applications in the Home
The TNETV1061 further extends TIís leadership in supporting the growing requirements and processing power to support the move to fixed-mobile convergence in the home. Higher rate codecs, including EVRC and GSM, are also supported by the TNETV family of VoIP processors and Telogy software, allowing operators to provide the mobility of cellular service while lowering their operational costs using VoIP technology.

The TNETV1061 solution seamlessly interfaces to TIís TNETW1350A 802.11b/g chip and pre-integrates the access point software to support WLAN-enabled VoIP products. By including TIís G++TM technology, consumers will benefit from twice the range and 50 percent greater throughput over previous WLAN solutions, while minimizing interference from products in the home such as microwaves, cordless phones and neighboring wireless networks.
