DALLAS (August 30, 2006) -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE:TXN) announced today that ZyXEL Communications Corp. (TSE:2391), the world's largest residential gateway provider, has chosen TI's Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) products for its voice-enabled DSL access devices, VoIP gateways and IP phones.  TI's complete, integrated customer premises equipment (CPE) silicon and software solutions are optimized for solution density, and incorporate TI's programmable digital signal processor (DSP)-based series of access communications processors and field-proven Telogy SoftwareTM for VoIP.  The first IP phones with TI's chipset, V501D-T1 and V300, will be available at CeBIT 2007. Prior to that, ZyXEL will roll out its high-port density VoIP gateway, P2024.
"TI's VoIP solutions are at the heart of ZyXEL's next-generation voice enabled CPE and IP phone products," said Dr. Albert Ju, assistant vice president, Telco/VoIP product line, ZyXEL Communications. "TI's technological skill, system stability and proven track record in VoIP software and silicon for customer premises equipment made them the clear choice for our newest VoIP devices. Together, ZyXEL and TI are partnering to offer customers the highest quality and most advanced VoIP premise products in the market."
The selection of TI's TNETV24xx and TNETV25xx series of VoIP gateway technology will enable ZyXEL to deliver high-performance voice processing and new feature-rich access products to market rapidly and efficiently across a broad range of CPE devices. TI's VoIP gateway product suite combines hardware and software-based functionality on an optimized architecture and co-defined features for a broad range of voice over packet applications. TI's TNETV105x family offers ZyXEL a highly integrated IP phone solution and comprehensive feature set with one of the industry's most robust acoustic echo cancellers. Using TI's flexible silicon and software architecture, ZyXEL can also develop add-on functionality into its IP phones as the demand for a particular feature or application emerges down the road.
