SEPTEMBER 23, 2008 -- ZTE Corp. (search for ZTE), China's largest listed telecommunications manufacturer and leading wireless solutions provider, is shipping Mindspeed's (search for Mindspeed) Comcerto Series voice-over-IP (VoIP) processors in its optical access networking equipment.

Optical access networks enable voice and sophisticated broadband services to be delivered to multi-tenant dwellings and office buildings with significantly lower capital and operating expenses than traditional voice networks.

"The integration, scalability and modularity of the Comcerto processor line allow ZTE to add media gateway functions to a variety of equipment with minimal redesign effort," reports Shou Qingliang, product general manager of ZTE.

"We are pleased to supply ZTE with our complete Comcerto VoIP processing solutions shipping in their optical access networking equipment today," adds Tom Medrek, senior vice president and general manager of Mindspeed's multiservice access business unit.

Mindspeed's Comcerto Series of multi-core VoIP processors and carrier-class media stream processing software delivers what the company claims is the industry's most complete VoIP media gateway with integrated signaling and control processing for next-generation network carrier and enterprise applications.

With a rich set of interfaces, voice codec options, and packet-processing features, Comcerto Series processors enable manufacturers to quickly and cost-effectively integrate VoIP-enabled T1/E1 and plain-old telephone service (POTS) gateway functions into a broad variety of carrier and enterprise access equipment, say Mindspeed representatives.

Comcerto devices are available in a range of channel densities and common packages, all operating Mindspeed's software. This allows customers to develop lower-density systems well suited to remotely deployed access equipment, as well as higher-density systems supporting thousands of channels for core network applications, while offering a common set of features and capabilities.
