The 3G-NGN is a software suite designed for Centillium Communications' Entropia III system-on-chip (SoC) processor. Entropia's VoIP processor software adapts the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) architecture, which is sponsored by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) to support multimedia convergence services aimed at wired and wireless next-generation networks (NGN).
The IMS architecture gives service providers the flexibility to create rich multimedia applications using one platform, and lets them seamlessly offer enhanced services tailored to consumer demands. With the release of the 3G-NGN software suite, Entropia can now support IMS Media Gateway Functions (MGF) for CDMA/3GPP2 or GSM/3GPP applications, along with all wired requirements. In addition, Entropia supports IMS Media Resource Function Processors (MRFP), delivering such features as tones, unlimited announcements, conferencing, and gaming.
The Entropia III solution integrates six SigmaPlus DSPs, plus four RISC network processors, and other advanced hardware blocks in a highly optimized, flexible architecture tuned specifically for voice convergence processing. Flexible system-level TDM/IP/ATM network interworking with and without transcoding, lawful interception, and advanced wireless and voice services are all part of the Entropia software solution. The Entropia III and 3G-NGN software suite are both available now.Additional information is available at www.centillium.com.
