SHELTON, Conn. -- TranSwitch Corporation (NASDAQ: TXCC) today announced that it is sampling worldwide to OEM customers its TXC-04226 EtherMapT-3, a highly integrated OC-3 mapping device designed for adapting Ethernet traffic onto existing SONET/SDH transport networks. The EtherMap-3 mapper is exceptionally well suited to help carriers and service providers harvest the value of their existing SONET/SDH networks. For communications OEMs, the device is a simple and cost-effective addition to existing metro access and edge equipment, making it easy for carriers to extend their current platforms and quickly ramp up new revenue-generating services without incurring major capital expense for forklift system upgrades.Tier 1 telecom customers have reported that the EtherMap-3 has achieved an industry first by combining unique TDM SONET/SDH low and high order mapping features with recently-standardized Ethernet encapsulation protocols for flexible broadband EoS transport. Yoram Holtz, VP Marketing at RAD Data Communications Ltd. in Israel, stated "RAD selected TranSwitch's EtherMap-3 OC-3 device because it was the first mapper on the market to offer features that support and enhance our emerging line of Ethernet-over-SONET/SDH products. Our only alternative would have been to develop an ASIC-based design on our own, which would have required a major investment of resources. Because we were able to partner with TranSwitch early in our design cycle, we could co-develop the CPE platform and speed our time-to-market." TranSwitch Corp.
