Spectrum Signal Processing announced the availability of the aXs.110, the first in a series of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and Voice over Asynchronous Transfer Mode (VoATM) Evaluation and Reference Platforms. The aXs.110 is a self-contained unit that allows customers to directly evaluate Spectrum's new aXs architecture based on Broadcom Corporation's BCM1500 CALISTO processor, and to rapidly incorporate aXs voice-processing products into their broadband voice gateways that bridge the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and packet networks.

The aXs.110 demonstrates the highest-density voice processing technology available for use in voice gateway equipment. The aXs.110 is based on Broadcom's CALISTO technology, a revolutionary communications processor aimed at high-density infrastructure voice and packet processing, and is the first product to emerge following the announcement of a marketing and technology alliance between Spectrum and Broadcom.

The aXs.110 supports up to OC-3 capacities (2016 voice channels) with fully integrated support for voice-processing algorithms, packet processing, and call control. The field-proven and industry-standard software algorithm stacks can be configured to match specific evaluation requirements. Using standard trunk and packet network interfaces, the aXs.110 can be quickly integrated into customers' target gateway and access environments. The platform enables vendors to evaluate the density, performance, functionality, and interoperability of the aXs architecture in their existing equipment configurations.
