WAN Access Switching Chip

Mitel Corporation

Mitel Introduces Industry's Largest Capacity WAN Switching Chip


New IC helps meet Internet-driven bandwidth requirements by doubling channel
capacity and improving Quality of Service (QoS) in carrier-class networking

A new Wide Area Network (WAN) access switching chip announced today by Mitel
Semiconductor, a division of Mitel Corporation, delivers the highest available
channel capacity to converged networks.  The MT90866 switches up to 4,096 x
2,432 channels, twice the bandwidth of alternative solutions.

The MT90866 manages voice, data and video traffic in large-scale carrier-class
equipment that bridges information on packet-based data networks to the
circuit-switched public telephone network.  When different types of
packet-based and circuit-switched traffic converge onto the network
infrastructure, the result can be delay, jitter, echo and data loss -
conditions that degrade Quality of Service.  Mitel's MT90866 incorporates a
phase locked loop (PLL), a block of circuitry that minimizes these effects by
optimizing system timing and synchronization.  This helps customers achieve
consistent and predictable information delivery, a benchmark requirement for
high QoS.

'As a high capacity, integrated switching chip, the MT90866 assists our
customers in building networking equipment that accommodates increased
Internet bandwidth requirements, and will meet their expectations for cost,
performance and QoS,' said Mark Wirth, product line manager, broadband
networks business unit, Mitel Semiconductor.  'The MT90866 supports multiple
system requirements, with the PLL delivering the superior timing and
synchronization that are increasingly demanded by the fast-growing
communications market.'

WAN access switching chips are used in such applications as carrier-class
access, concentrators, remote access, Voice-over-Internet Protocol gateways,
and computer telephony integration.  The market for access applications is
forecast to reach US$10.7 billion by 2003.*

Three-in-one switch supports flexibility, high QoS

The MT90866 WAN Access Switch is a specialized 3-volt time division multiplex
(TDM) timeslot interface that supports voice, data and video traffic.  The
device incorporates three switching functions into a single product: 4,096 x
2,432 channels between backplane and the local streams, 2,432 x 2,432 channels
among local streams, and 2,048 x 2,048 channels among backplane streams.  

With the industry's highest switching capacity between backplane and local
streams, the MT90866 provides customers with an easy route to meeting
increased bandwidth requirements.  Backplane switching capability supports
diagnostic testing, and provides the flexibility to increase system bandwidth
while minimizing board connector and bus size.  The three-in-one capability
reduces component count and enables system designers to flexibly accommodate a
range of equipment requirements.

Integrated PLL provides performance advantage

The new WAN Access Switch is Mitel's first timeslot interchange to integrate a
Telcordia Stratum 4e-compliant PLL.  This high-quality PLL satisfies H.110
timing requirements and eliminates the need for a separate timing device,
thereby reducing cost and board space when compared to using two separate
components.  The PLL provides holdover mode, at frequency of 0.07 ppm, time
interval error correction, master/slave mode, and wander attenuation from 1.9
Hz.  This is beneficial in multi-trunk systems, since it supports constant
timing and synchronization in the event that the trunk carrying the primary
timing reference is disabled.  

Standards compliance

Mitel's MT90866 is compliant with the ECTF H.110 specification, allowing it to
support the compact PCI platform.  Compact PCI is emerging as the standard for
CTI, telecom and datacom equipment, since it supports the convergence of
multiple TDM-based and packetized data formats over the same network.

Support, pricing, and availability

Mitel's WAN Access Switch is supported by a demonstration evaluation board,
software drivers, reference design and applications notes.  The device is
sampling now, supplied in a 256-pin LQFP or 250-pin LBGA package.  The IC will
be shipping in production volumes by March 2001, for US$60 in 10k quantities.
