DECEMBER 4, 2008 -- TranSwitch Corp. (search for TranSwitch) has unveiled the Atlanta 2000 communications processor product family. Atlanta 2000 is designed to offer robust gateway routing, security, and VoIP capabilities with unmatched performance and power efficiency. The device family is expected to be used in the development of high-performance "green" networking products and services for residential, small office/home office (SOHO), and small to medium-sized business (SMB) customer premises equipment (CPE).
Atlanta 2000 offers wire-speed gigabit routing performance for small packets with scalable voice-over-IP for up to eight low-bit-rate voice channels. TranSwitch says the processor's SoC design integrates all functions of a broadband gateway, including a DSP for voice and key exchange, security processors, and a Gigabit Ethernet switch. Its high level of integration enables CPE manufacturers to reduce their bill-of-materials (BOM), the company adds. In business applications, where network security is a key requirement, Atlanta 2000 supports multiple network security applications such as IPSec and SSL accelerators with what TranSwitch asserts is best-in-class performance.
"Atlanta 2000 is the latest and most advanced member of our field-proven communications processor product line," said Dr. Sudhir Chandratreya, vice president of engineering and technology at TranSwitch. "With the Atlanta 2000 line of processors, we've developed a best-in-class platform that supports gigabits-per-second throughput with the highest degree of functional integration including dual RISC cores, built-in DSP, hardware security engines, and packet processing accelerators - everything the market needs to drive next-generation PON, xDSL and wireless voice-enabled broadband gateways and security appliances."
Atlanta 2000 is enhanced by an open software model and publicly available Developers Edition Toolkit reference software, enabling equipment vendors to bring products to market faster at a lower cost with higher return on investment, TranSwitch concludes.
