(PRWEB) February 23, 2003
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. Â February 24, 2003 Â Trinity Convergence Inc. today announced support for StarCore LLC, a stand-alone venture created to develop and license digital signal processor (DSP) core technologies. VeriCall, TrinityÂs flagship product, is the first fully integrated, system-level VoIP software suite supporting StarCore LLC and cores from its StarCore DSP family. Companies licensing StarCore technology and TrinityÂs VeriCall product can quickly bring to market solutions optimized for the growing IP telephony market.
According to Forward Concepts, VoIP is among the fastest growing markets for DSPs. In its 2002 ÂVoIP and Packet Voice DSP MarketsÂ study, the research firm forecasts the value of DSP chips and chipsets for VoIP will grow from $129 million in 2001 to $1.4 billion in 2006, representing a compound growth rate of 61 percent. TrinityÂs award-winning VeriCall software provides significant performance and architectural advantages for DSP vendors seeking competitive advantages in winning VoIP contracts.
ÂStarCore LLC is pleased to welcome Trinity Convergence as a valued member of the StarCore alliance program,Â said Alex Bedarida, StarCore LLCÂs VP of Marketing and Sales. ÂWe are very impressed with Trinity ConvergenceÂs leadership and in-depth knowledge of Voice over IP applications and StarCore DSP technology. We believe TrinityÂs comprehensive but flexible system level solution, VeriCall, simplifies the integration into complex system-on-chip (SoC) products. TrinityÂs expertise in StarCore DSPs promises to offer significant time-to-market advantages for our common customers.Â
VeriCall integrates, in a single enabling solution, the fundamental functions required for VoIP. This provides the customers of VeriCall-enabled DSPs with robust IP telephony capabilities as well as reduced product time-to-market and development cost.
Commenting on the market opportunities for StarCore LLC and Trinity, Salim Bhatia, CEO of Trinity Convergence, said, ÂOpen licensing models for processors have proven to be extremely successful, providing designers and developers fast time to market, as well as freedom to tailor devices to the needs of their applications. The addition of VeriCall, with its adaptability and extensibility, enhances this open model reducing the risk, cost, and time to market without sacrificing the flexibility required to build VoIP- enabled systems. As a result, the collaboration between StarCore LLC and Trinity has significant upside potential for both companies in the nascent IP telephony market.Â
Until now, telecom equipment OEMs seeking to outsource VoIP enabling software had two primary options: Source and integrate individual components themselves, or license commercially available solutions that were largely incomplete, closed, and loosely integrated. By offering the fundamental VoIP functions in a single, integrated solution, VeriCall reduces the time-to-market and cost challenges of designing enterprise and carrier-class equipment. Its distributed architecture employs a complete set of system controller, DSP and packet processor software resources. VeriCallÂs open architecture allows developers to easily integrate custom or third party algorithms, protocols, and control applications into the system. This unique capability allows OEMs to preserve their investment in their own intellectual property and differentiate themselves in the highly competitive VoIP equipment market.
