BOSTON, MA--Twintin, a scalable DTM switch engine on a single chip optimized for high speed optical networking products, offers voice, data, and video with 100% QoS/

Net Insight, the leading worldwide provider of Dynamic synchronous Transfer Mode (DTM) networking solutions, today announced that it has successfully integrated full multiservice switching functionality as a single system-on-a-chip (SOC) design. The Twintin SOC, developed in cooperation with Toshiba Electronics, has been successfully tested and verified on Net Insight´s Nimbra 290 switch. Twintin is a complete multiservice switch engine for voice, data, and video, guaranteeing 100% quality of service (QoS) for real-time traffic in optical networks. The test result of this first ASIC in the Twintin family marks the next step in Net Insight´s aggressive integration roadmap for optical switching.

DTM-a multiservice provisioning platform (MSPP) that combines a dynamic time slot mechanism and fast circuit set up-solves the QoS problem by imposing dynamic bandwidth on circuits as opposed to circuit emulation over packet technology. With this unique combination of dynamic bandwidth and end-to-end QoS, DTM is optimized as both a direct voice, video, or data connection as well as a broadband carrier network. The Twintin DTM ASIC implicitly provides direct support for real-time applications-TV/video and voice over IP-through strict channel separation and constant switching delay. This ability will enable a push for these types of real-time applications over the Internet.
