Mindspeed sells five millionth multi-core packet processor for customer premises equipment

Mindspeed Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, has announced it has shipped five million Comcerto multi-core system-on-chip (SoC) embedded packet processors for customer premises equipment (CPE), including residential gateways and broadband home routers (BHRs).

“Our Comcerto 1000 processor has particularly strong penetration in the BHR market, where we are playing an important role in this segment’s rapid expansion and evolution,” said Naser Adas, vice president and general manager, CPE and wireless, at Mindspeed. “We continue to deliver a growing range of capabilities on the multi-core SoC foundation of our Comcerto processor, which combines performance with extremely low power consumption and carrier-class voice, quality of service (QoS) and reliability. This architecture has proven ideal for value-added services deployment by enabling remotely-managed applications from carriers, or third-party providers, to be run on one core, while the other remains dedicated to primary gateway functionality including voice processing and IPTV routing.”

Mindspeed recently enhanced its Comcerto 1000 family to enable a new category of CPE service offload platform (SOP) hardware that can be used with existing BHRs in the connected home. SOP Boxes will make it easier and more cost-effective for service providers to partner with best-of-breed home automation, utility monitoring, security, healthcare and networked appliance vendors to deliver cloud-based applications that can be provisioned and securely managed using their current hardware and software infrastructure.

The new Mindspeed’s Comcerto 1000 processor comes with state-of-the-art QoS hardware capability that delivers the highest quality of experience to demanding users that expect flawless, simultaneous streaming of voice, high-definition (HD) grade video and data applications. The Comcerto 1000’s unique, programmable software architecture enables manufacturers to offer multiple system solutions for various deployments ranging from fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) based triple play gateways to 3G/4G-routers and WiMAX integrated access devices (IADs). Comcerto processors take advantage of Mindspeed’s design experience using ARM cores, and its long history of leadership in carrier-class voice technology.
