Fourth-generation solution provides intelligent QoS and advanced feature set at half the power consumption
"Despite the downturn in the global economy, demand for high-speed, high- quality network transport will continue to grow," said Aileen Arcilla, senior analyst for Semiconductors at IDC. "Today's wireline and wireless networks require low-power, highly integrated solutions that will ensure high- performance transport, particularly for the anticipated increase in video traffic."
Optimum network performance is achievable only if QoS can be measured in both directions on each active channel. Built for wireless and wireline transport applications, Ultramapper II has the power and the intelligence to deliver concurrent, real-time QoS data to service providers across every channel in the network. Featuring higher port density and lower power consumption than the previous generation, its capabilities include ultra-fast, state-of-the-art network error detection, fault isolation and remote repair capabilities at reduced cost per port.
"This device reinforces LSI's leadership in wireless and wireline processor technology," said Shane Gunning, product line director, Networking Components Division, LSI. "Compared to the previous generation, the new Ultramapper II provides customers with increased performance and additional features at half the power consumption."
Compatible with other SoCs in the Ultramapper family and scalable across the bandwidth spectrum from DS0 (64 kb/s) to OC-3 (155.52 Mbs), Ultramapper II enables OEMs to leverage one design effort across their complete line of network platforms. Standard, carrier-grade features include 4 x OC-3 protection for Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA) applications, 12 x DS3/E3/EC1 terminations, protection switching, full DS3 PMON on all twelve channels, STS3c/STM-1C capability and simplified clocking.
Ultramapper II is expected to be available in sample quantities this quarter. Production quantities are expected to be available in April.
LSI will showcase its wireless infrastructure solutions in stand AV53 at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, February 16 to 19. The LSI stand will be located in the Avenue Pavilion near Hall 8 of the exhibition.
