Broadcom has launched a new VoIP chip set for use in the next generation IP phones and multimedia terminals.
The Persona IP Communications Platform gives enterprise and consumer IP phones multimedia capabilities, premium audio, robust Ethernet switching, enhanced security and extensive peripheral support.
The platform offers feature-enhanced IP phone system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions for each product segment.
- the Broadcom BCM11107 for higher end Gigabit multimedia telephony applications
- the BCM11109 for mainstream Gigabit enterprise applications
- the BCM11170 for value-line and low-end enterprise, small-to-medium-sized business (SMB) and small office/home office (SoHo) applications
Martyn Humphries, vice president & general manager for Broadcom’s VoIP line of business, said next generation IP phones are positioned to become the central communications portal of both the office and home.
He said they enabled users with advanced applications to take advantage of multimedia features, streaming video and touch screen interfaces.
"Multimedia functionality should ultimately increase user efficiency, and productivity thereby accelerating high quality, advanced IP communications devices in the enterprise and a high quality experience in the home," he said.
The Persona platform processors are now sampling to early access customers. Pricing is available from Broadcom.
