OTTAWA -- Zarlink Semiconductor (NYSE/TSX:ZL) today launched the industry's most fully featured TDM/TSI switch family, setting a new performance standard for high-density switches designed into next-generation converged and wireless networking equipment.

Zarlink, the market leader in TDM switching, developed its 32 K ZL(TM)50073 TDM switch family to meet the exacting requirements of high-bandwidth, wired and wireless networking equipment such as media gateways, wireless base stations, and remote access concentrators that carry converged voice, data and multimedia services. Customers are also demanding higher-performance TDM devices to upgrade the Class 4/Class 5 Central Office switches that still dominate today's carrier networks.

"The ZL50073 family is the only TDM switch platform that delivers a complete mix of features for next-generation converged and wireless traffic, as well as basic voice services," said Kam Aite, product line marketing manager, TDM/TSI Switching, Zarlink Semiconductor.

Zarlink's four-device ZL50073 family provides the industry's most flexible and cost-effective centralized switching approach for high-bandwidth voice and data equipment. The family's premier ZL50073 switch doubles the capabilities of competing high-density devices, offering 128 input and 128 output streams for interfacing to peripheral components and different data rates up to 64 Mbps.
