Mindspeed Comcerto 1000 Packet Processor Features TeamF1 Secure Gateway

Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, announced that the Secure Gateway Solution (SGS) from TeamF1, Inc., the leader in embedded networking and security software solutions for wired and wireless applications, is now available on Mindspeed’s Comcerto 1000 packet processor, enabling a new class of multi-service business gateways (MSBGs) and other converged appliances. The two companies will be at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week, demonstrating MSBG platforms that deliver better performance at a much lower cost than current enterprise-class gateways.

The combination of TeamF1′s SGS with Mindspeed’s high-performance, low-power and cost-effective Comcerto 1000 packet processor family enables a new class of MSBG platforms and other converged security and IP-private branch exchange (IP-PBX) appliances. These appliances deliver up to 2 Gbps of network address translation (NAT) and IPSec performance at a very attractive cost point with low power consumption. Mindspeed’s and TeamF1′s combined solution gives customers everything they need to quickly bring to market wired and wireless gateways, virtual private network (VPN) firewall routers and other security appliances that leverage the TeamF1′s SGS software running on Comcerto 1000 VoIP-enabled security processors with Mindspeed’s enterprise-grade VoIP and PBX firmware.

“We are excited to be including TeamF1′s proven, world-class SGS software offering with our Comcerto 1000 processor,” said Naser Adas, vice president of business development with Mindspeed’s Multi-service Access business unit. “SGS optimizes Comcerto 1000 performance in security applications while speeding time-to-market for power-efficient products that deliver comprehensive features with unprecedented data rates for small business and residential networking.”

“Comcerto 1000 is an outstanding platform for showcasing our field-proven set of modular, turnkey SGS components with customizable options that ensure the ultimate in product flexibility,” said Mukesh Lulla, president, TeamF1. “Our mutual customers will have everything they need to design and deliver VPN/firewall gateway devices and new PBX/security appliances in record time, and at far less risk than with alternative development approaches.”

TeamF1′s SGS is fully supported on Mindspeed’s Comcerto 1000 system-on-chip (SoC) devices, which combine industry-leading ARM processor technology and application-specific hardware accelerators for both IPSec and SLL to deliver up to 1 Gbps of symmetric IPSec or 2 Gbps of aggregate IPSec performance. Additionally, built-in programmable quality of service (QoS) accelerators offload cycle and time-intensive packet processing, which enables Comcerto SoCs to sustain short-packet gigabit line-rate denial-of-service (DoS) attacks without interrupting mission-critical applications.

TeamF1′s SGS is also complemented by Comcerto’s other modular, companion software, including an extremely efficient fast packet-forwarding package and a carrier-class, feature-rich voice package. These packages are included in a Linux reference standard development kit (SDK) that is available with the Comcerto 1000. Comcerto 1000 customers also have access to other third-party software and customer applications.

Mindspeed’s and TeamF1′s jointly developed MSBG solutions will be demonstrated from Jan. 8 – 10, 2010, in Mindspeed’s private suite at CES, located in Meeting Room #35554MP, South Hall 4, in the Las Vegas Convention Center. For an appointment, please call (949) 244-3668.
