D2 Technologies Demonstrates VoIP Solutions for Cavium OCTEON Processors at Interop

Select OEMs already delivering latest communication devices based on combined Cavium and D2 platform

LAS VEGAS, NV – Interop Las Vegas 2007 (booth #1075) – May 22, 2007 — D2 Technologies, the market leader in embedded software platforms that power IP communications, today announced that it is demonstrating its powerful vPort embedded VoIP software on the Cavium Networks’ single and dual core OCTEON MIPS64® CN30XX and CN31XX processors at Interop in Las Vegas on May 22-25, 2007 (booth #1075).  Select manufacturers have already begun delivering solutions based on the combined Cavium and D2 platform, and the company will be showcasing a vPort-based VoWLAN phone making VoIP calls to a Cavium OCTEON CN30XX platform also running D2’s vPort software solution.

“The Cavium Networks CN31XX and CN30XX OCTEON processors provide a high performance, low power and extremely cost effective platform for OEMs building SME, SOHO and CPE voice/video/data equipment,” said Rajneesh Gaur, Director of Marketing at Cavium Networks.  “We’re pleased to be working with D2 to deliver a high-quality, pre-integrated voice solution for our joint customers.”

D2's vPort embedded VoIP software enables manufacturers to rapidly deliver the latest IP communications devices by ensuring networking, signaling and voice processing functions execute as an integrated solution on a single processor, eliminating the need for costly DSP processor cores.  This not only speeds time to market by simplifying the design, it also improves performance and drives down costs for the latest devices, including VoWLAN and dual-mode (VoIP and cellular) phone handsets.

“Cavium is well-known throughout the industry for producing very scalable, highly integrated and performance-driven processors,” said Doug Makishima, vice president of marketing and sales at D2 Technologies. “When you combine their OCTEON processor family with vPort, which is built around flexibility and portability, OEMs have an extremely compelling VoIP solution for a variety of appliances and handsets.  We’re excited to show off these products in Cavium’s Interop booth.”

The single and dual-core OCTEON CN30XX and CN31XX processors are being used in several applications that require voice as an important feature, including next generation 802.11n WLAN secure access points, SME/SOHO Routers, Broadband Gateways/Routers, Gigabit CPE routers and Triple Play Gateways. OCTEON is available with standard operating system support such as Linux along with a suite of software applications to process multiple channels of VoIP calls and enable router, gateway, NAS, firewall, Anti-Virus, IPsec and SSL VPN functionality. For quick time to market, drivers for peripherals including 802.11 a/b/g/n, wireline connectivity, MoCA (Media-over-Coax), UWB, MPEG playback and streaming and disk storage are available today.
