Several product demonstrations illustrate the power and versatility of the new line of Interphase controllers for use in third-generation wireless communications, high-speed Broadband Internet access Broadband Internet access, often shortened to just "broadband", is high speed Internet access—typically contrasted with dial-up access over modem.
Dial-up modems are generally only capable of a maximum bitrate of 56 kbit/s (kilobits per second) and require the full use of a and Advanced Intelligent Network (AIN) applications.
"The Embedded Telecommunications segment offers an extremely high growth market opportunity and is a key initiative for Interphase," said Roger Woolley, Interphase Senior Director of Global Marketing. "Our demonstrations at Networld+Interop show how equipment providers and integrators can cost-effectively build reliable telecommunication systems to deliver enhanced services such as cellular telephony, wireless Internet access, broadband Internet access and call number portability."
Featured in the demonstrations are the communication controllers that Interphase announced last month in support of its initiative to penetrate this rapidly growing next-generation broadband telecommunications server market. The new products include:
-- 4535 Multiprotocol T1/E1 PMC (1) See Portable Media Center.

High Speed ATM for Internet Access
Frustrated with slow Web content delivery and lengthy file downloads, many users are seeking faster broadband access to the Internet. Rapidly growing alternatives include cable-modem service through the same wire that delivers cable TV programming or high-speed DSL DSL
in full Digital Subscriber Line
Broadband digital communications connection that operates over standard copper telephone wires. It requires a DSL modem, which splits transmissions into two frequency bands: the lower frequencies for voice (ordinary access through regular telephone lines. Both require ATM as the interconnecting service.
Teamed with Ziatech at Networld+Interop, Interphase is demonstrating its 4575 ATM Over OC-3 Communications Controller in an Internet access application utilizing the Ziatech ZT5083 High Availability CompactPCI(R) system. The display illustrates how developers and service providers can utilize this product combination for several ATM access network applications including Access Concentrators, DSLAMs, ATM gateways, and Element Management Systems.
Building the Next Generation of Wireless
The wireless telecommunications industry is rapidly changing. Subscribers are demanding enhanced wireless services, and it is anticipated that there will be more than a billion wireless Internet users worldwide by 2003. Network operators and service providers are seeking flexible and cost-effective solutions to help them meet these demands.
At Networld+Interop, Interphase has teamed with Motorola Computer Group to demonstrate how the Motorola CPX CPX Command Post Exercise

Making the Advanced Intelligent Network More Intelligent
Today's familiar telephony features -- such as caller ID, call waiting and 800/888 numbers -- are value-added services made possible by the Advanced Intelligent Network. The usage of these existing services is proliferating and subscribers, placing a tremendous burden on the existing capacity within the Intelligent Network, are rapidly adopting new services such as call number portability.
Interphase is partnering with Force Computers to demonstrate how the Force Centellis CompactPCI telecommunications server populated with Interphase 4535 and 4534 controllers can deliver intelligent I/O for AIN applications requiring T1/E1 and synchronous communications. This powerful combination gives service providers with cost and time-to-market advantages when deploying next-generation telecommunication systems such as Element Management Systems, Intelligent Peripherals and Service Creation Points within the Advanced Intelligent Network.
Interphase is located in Booth No. 933 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center The Las Vegas Convention Center is owned and operated by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and is located in Clark County, Nevada. It is one of the largest Convention centers in the world. At the end of 2004, the center had 3. .
