Exploding IP traffic rates and the proliferation of smarter, bandwidth-hungry consumer devices are dramatically increasing demands on the world’s networks. To help address these challenges, wireless infrastructure equipment manufacturer Dialogic, a leading provider of products and technologies that enable operators to provide – and subscribers to enjoy – an enhanced mobile experience, has selected high-performance processing solutions from Freescale Semiconductor (NYSE: FSL) to power a range of Session Bandwidth Optimization products designed to boost data throughput and reduce power requirements for wireless network operators.
Freescale is a key provider of processing technology for Dialogic’s I-Gate® 4000 line of Session Bandwidth Optimizers (SBOs). I-Gate solutions are engineered to reduce capital and operating expenditures for wireless carriers by supporting additional subscribers and services across currently deployed networks. The latest I-Gate SBO products integrate Freescale’s QorIQ P4080 processor and StarCore MSC8156 DSP, and future-generation Dialogic offerings are slated to incorporate Freescale’s flagship QorIQ T4240 multicore processor.
“The power, performance and integration of Freescale’s processing and DSP products represent an excellent fit for our highly advanced I-Gate solutions,” said Yair Hevdeli, vice president and general manger, Bandwidth Optimization Business Unit at Dialogic. “We have successfully worked with Freescale for several years and developed a great synergy between Freescale technologies and our customers’ needs. This synergy, combined with the company’s unparalleled customer support, pointed clearly to Freescale as the choice for Dialogic’s new I-Gate products.”
Freescale’s eight-core QorIQ P4080 processor delivers optimal price/performance ratios and has been broadly deployed by many of the world’s leading networking equipment OEMs. The six-core Freescale MSC8156 DSP delivers exceptional performance and power savings while providing eight 16-bit MACS of throughput per cycle. And Freescale’s forthcoming QorIQ T4240 device achieved the highest overall CoreMark benchmark performance score for an embedded processor.“Dialogic’s innovative I-Gate Session Bandwidth Optimizers are highly compelling products that enable cost-effective transport of VoIP and data traffic in 2G, 3G and LTE mobile networks and next-generation networks, virtually tripling bandwidth capacity,” said Bernd Lienhard, vice president and general manager for Freescale’s Networking Processor Division. “We are pleased to work with Dialogic and provide key technology that helps many of the top wireless service providers in the industry to maximize their current infrastructures.”
