PETALUMA, Calif. -- Teknovus, Inc., a provider of semiconductors for digital broadband access networks, today announced an innovative new family of EthernetPlus™ chips that deliver time division multiplex (TDM) circuits over standard point-to-point Ethernet links. The TK3501 is the first chip available from this family and supports up to four T1/E1 circuits over 100 Mb/s Ethernet links.A key benefit of the EthernetPlus chip family is that it allows telecommunication service providers to deliver both IP data and revenue-critical TDM services over a common Ethernet platform, with the same quality as more expensive TDM networks. Several access equipment vendors have qualified the product for use in their equipment, including TTC Group and Allied Telesyn.Sean Tan, Product Manager for Allied Telesyn says “Until we saw the Teknovus chipset, we were skeptical that it was possible to enable T1/E1 functionality over a cost-effective data infrastructure. But the EthernetPlus chipset delivers TDM traffic over Ethernet at breakthrough prices that will help us dramatically improve the value proposition of our products.”Unlike currently available in-band techniques, which require complex timing and traffic management to deliver TDM traffic over Ethernet, the Teknovus EthernetPlus chips deliver dedicated out-of-band circuits on standard Ethernet connections. This approach ensures quality of service but is simpler and much lower cost.Teknovus Inc.
