NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today announced the addition of two new devices to its Comcerto 300 Series of highly-integrated voice-over-IP (VoIP) processors. These new devices provide a performance/cost ratio targeted at eight and 16 port fiber-based access (FTTx) equipment.

Since the launch of the Comcerto 300 Series in January 2008, the devices have been selected by more than two dozen customers for over three dozen designs, across all major regional markets. A majority of these designs are within Tier 1 carrier FTTx equipment. According to Dell'Oro Group, access VoIP port shipments will grow at a 51 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR), from 11 million ports in 2008 to 85 million ports in 2013. It is expected that ninety percent of the access ports in 2013 will be in multi-dwelling units (MDUs), Internet protocol digital subscriber line access multiplexer (IPDSLAMs) and multiservice access nodes (MSANs) for FTTx, a segment specifically targeted by the Comcerto 300.

With carrier-grade Comcerto 300-based FTTx equipment deployments now in process, Mindspeed's customers are expected to gain a time-to-market advantage from the Comcerto 300 product offering, which includes both devices and production-tested VoIP processing software. Mindspeed's total system solution removes much of the system complexity and risk, which often plagues new equipment development.

The two new devices bring the benefits of the Comcerto 300 family to lower-performance/lower-density applications at a lower cost, while retaining software, application programming interface (API), and footprint compatibility with the rest of the Comcerto 300 family. The M82351 targets eight ports of complex VoIP, while the M82352 targets 16 ports, further improving the industry's most scalable VoIP solution.

"These new devices extend and complement a product family that has already experienced tremendous market acceptance with FTTx access equipment manufacturers worldwide since its launch 18 months ago," said Kurt Michel, VoIP marketing director of Mindspeed's multiservice access business unit.

"We are very pleased to have a product family that clearly addresses the critical needs of the FTTx equipment market, at a time when that market is experiencing rapid growth. We also look forward to providing our Comcerto 300 customers a continually evolving set of advanced capabilities and features that the platform was designed to support -- including high-speed fax relay and wideband (high definition) voice. We believe that these features will ensure that Mindspeed customers stay on the leading edge of next-generation network (NGN) evolution," Michel added.
