Genexis Selects Mindspeed’s Comcerto Communications Processor For New Line Of Broadband Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) Products

Stocks in this article: MSPD

Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:MSPD), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today announced that Genexis, a European market leader in home gateways for fiber-to-the-home, has selected Mindspeed®’s Comcerto family of multi-core ARM® based communications processors to develop a line of broadband CPE products that support new protocols and higher speeds with lower power consumption.

“We are very excited to be working with Mindspeed’s Comcerto processors on our new line of broadband gateways,” said Tom Andersen, director of product line management with Genexis. “Mindspeed’s new processors build on previous experience with Comcerto devices that have proven to work well in earlier Genexis products. The Comcerto devices are fast and well integrated and they enable us to offer industry-leading features and the next generation of software-defined networking solutions.”

“Genexis has quickly become one of the leading suppliers of home gateways to the fiber-to-the-home market, worldwide, and we are committed to helping them broaden their success by providing the advanced processing foundation for one of their new product lines,” said Marco E. Bello, executive director of marketing and product management for the communications convergence processing (CCP) business unit at Mindspeed. “Our Comcerto family gives Genexis and its customers the confidence of a carrier-hardened processing platform that delivers an unprecedented combination of feature integration, performance and power efficiency at the industry’s lowest price level.”

Mindspeed recently announced the latest generation of its Comcerto family. The Comcerto 2000 communications processors deliver industry-high performance using the company’s patented wire-rate, gigabit-speed Open Packet Acceleration Logic (OPAL™) data-path acceleration technology. This includes fully-programmable wire-speed network accelerators for IPv4/IPv6 and six packet forwarding/network address translation (NAT), firewall/VPN, IPSec/SSL security processing, deep packet inspection (DPI), quality of service (QoS) and storage network processing. The offload allows the two 1.2GHz ARM Cortex™-A9 processors to be fully available for executing value-added applications from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) or service providers.

Mindspeed’s Comcerto 2000 processors function either as control and management processors or as integrated control and data path processors. They can be used in a variety of secure systems, including security gateways or converged broadband home router (BHR) and set-top box (STB) media gateways that require digital rights management (DRM) support. The devices are backward-compatible with the wide range of carrier-proven software that has developed for Comcerto 100 and 1000 communications processors, enabling manufacturers to rapidly develop a family of products for different price-performance points. Mindspeed’s Comcerto 2000 processors also feature a comprehensive set of I/O and peripherals, as well as support for DDR3 with ECC.
