TranSwitch Launches Multi Core Atlanta 2000 Communications Processors

TranSwitch® Corporation (NASDAQ: TXCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions for the converging voice, data and video network, announced its new Atlanta[tm] 2000 communications processor product family. Atlanta 2000 offers robust gateway routing, security and VoIP capabilities with unmatched performance and power efficiency, enabling customers to develop the next generation of high performance ‘green’ networking products and services for residential, small office/home office (SOHO), and small to medium-sized business (SMB) customer premise equipment (CPE) applications.

As service providers fulfill the surging demand for triple play services to the home and secure, high bandwidth data connectivity for small businesses and branch offices, they will create new demands for performance and functionality on the CPE equipment deployed at these locations. Atlanta 2000, a highly integrated SoC solution, was designed specifically to meet the demands for these new services.

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. The processor’s innovative SoC design integrates all functions of a broadband gateway, including a DSP for voice and key exchange, security processors and a Gigabit Ethernet switch. Due to its high level of integration, Atlanta 2000 enables CPE manufacturers to achieve ground-breaking efficiency in their Bill-of-Materials (BOM), enabling them to deliver tremendous value in this cost sensitive market segment. For business applications, network security is a key requirement. Atlanta 2000 supports multiple network security applications such as IPSec and SSL accelerators with 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 Corporation. “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. Other less innovative solutions struggle to achieve wirespeed throughput and may degrade performance when managing multiple voice channels and/or customer applications in parallel. Atlanta 2000′s innovative design, which incorporates state-of-the-art multi-issue, Very Long Instruction Word (VLIW) CPUs, high-speed DDR2 memory and on-chip accelerators, maximizes packet processing throughput without compromising performance on other fronts,” concluded Dr. Chandratreya.

About Atlanta 2000
Atlanta 2000 is a family of communications processors optimized for Gigabit-rate packet processing applications. The Atlanta 2000 product suite provides best-in-class performance at the lowest power and bill-of-materials costs for a range of applications that require IP packet routing, encryption and media processing at data rates up to two gigabits-per-second. These applications include secure broadband gateways, SSL/TLS and IPSec acceleration, and micro-PBX. 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.
