TranSwitch Corporation and RAD Data Communications partner to develop innovative TDM-over-IP line for packet-switched networks
January 8, 2003
SHELTON, Conn. -- TranSwitch Corporation (NASDAQ:TXCC), a leading developer and global supplier of innovative, high speed VLSI semiconductor solutions, and RAD Data Communications Ltd., an international manufacturer of access equipment for data communications and telecommunications solutions headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel, announced today that they are joining forces under a strategic technology partnership and OEM agreement to introduce a new family of TDM over IP (TDMoIP) VLSI products that can be used to develop TDMoIP-capable network equipment. These advanced devices will enable transparent transport of legacy TDM and serial data over IP/MPLS networks. "Packet-switched networks are not designed to provide TDM services," explained Tal Gilad, TDMoIP Product Manager at RAD Data Communications. "TDMoIP enables transmission of TDM traffic over asynchronous networks while overcoming packet loss and delay variations introduced by those networks." TDMoIP, which RAD developed and introduced to the industry at Telecom Geneva in 1999, is now an established technology that has been successfully deployed in over 2,500 links worldwide to carry TDM over the packet-switched networks of carriers, Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs) and enterprises. "We are delighted to be collaborating with TranSwitch," said Gilad. "We are confident that as more vendors adopt the TDMoIP solution, it will emerge as the industry standard for legacy migration." RAD is working in the IETF and MPLS Forums to promote TDMoIP as a standard for transporting TDM traffic over packet networks. TranSwitch Corp. RAD Data Communications Ltd.
