Mindspeed's New Reference Design Combines Category-4 LTE with Mindspeed’s Carrier Grade VoIP Codecs and D2's Leading IMS Software
Newport Beach, CA – June 4, 2013 — Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, and D2 Technologies, a market leader in mobile IP communications software, today announced the successful integration of D2’s vPort GW 2.0 embedded IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) software on Mindspeed's Comcerto® 2000 content-aware network processor.
“VoLTE and IMS will gradually become essential components of fixed wireless gateways as more and more carriers will mandate the use of IMS for voice traffic over their LTE network.”
Mindspeed’s Comcerto 2000 processor family combines the processing power of a dual core ARM Cortex™-A9 CPU running at 1.2GHz with gigabit class hardware accelerators to address applications as diverse as high-performance home gateways, network attached storage, small and medium business routers, voice appliances, etc. The Open Packet Acceleration Logic (OPAL™) technology integrated in the Comcerto 2000 includes programmable hardware accelerators for networking, security and deep packet inspection delivering the full potential of new technologies such as Wi-Fi 11ac, LTE and MoCA2.0 in next generation networking equipment.
D2 Technologies’ vPort GW 2.0 IMS VoLTE client software offers broadband service providers a carrier grade, interoperable solution to enable high-quality voice-over-IP in wireless client devices. The vPort GW 2.0 embedded client is fully IR.92 VoLTE compliant and includes support for IMS session initiation protocol (SIP), short message service (SMS) over IP, short message peer-to-peer (SMPP), ISIM and USIM authentication and registration, XCAP call supplemental services, and key voice engine components.
The integration of D2’s IMS/VoLTE software follows an earlier announcement by Mindspeed of a fixed LTE router reference design in collaboration with Sequans Communications S.A. This Comcerto 2000-based reference design leverages Mindspeed’s highly successful fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) architecture to enable a new class of broadband gateways in which network access is wireless, using the LTE network.
A live demonstration showcasing the integrated solution will be hosted in Mindspeed's booth (D0719) at Computex Taipei from June 4-8, 2013 at the Taipei World Trade Center in Taipei, Taiwan. The system on display will illustrate the unique capabilities of the Comcerto 2000 processor for applications involving a category 4-LTE network access, dual-band concurrent Wi-Fi (n+ac), gigabit networking and high-performance storage. In addition, the demo will underscore the successful integration of D2’s signaling stack with Mindspeed’s carrier grade voice codecs.
"By integrating D2's IMS software with Mindspeed's carrier grade VoIP solution, we are offering carriers, OEMs and ODMs a turnkey solution to run VoLTE on Comcerto 2000-powered wireless gateways," said Laurent Hendrichs, senior product line manager at Mindspeed. "VoLTE and IMS will gradually become essential components of fixed wireless gateways as more and more carriers will mandate the use of IMS for voice traffic over their LTE network."
"We are excited to work with Mindspeed to capitalize on the new and fast growing LTE router market," said Doug Makishima, chief operating officer at D2 Technologies. "Mindspeed's Comcerto 2000 offers both outstanding performance and a comprehensive feature set that make it ideal for voice enabled LTE routers."
