MIPS TECHNOLOGIES LICENSES 32-BIT CORE TO BRECIS COMMUNICATIONS.MIPS Technologies (MIPS Technologies, Inc., Mountain View, CA, www.mips.com) Founded in 1984 as MIPS Computer Systems Inc., the company merged with SGI in 1992 and spun off as an independent entity once again in 2000. , Inc. (Nasdaq:MIPS (Million Instructions Per Second) The execution speed of a computer. For example, .5 MIPS is 500,000 instructions per second; 100 MIPS is a hundred million instructions per second. , MIPSB), a provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for digital consumer and network applications, has licensed its MIPS32 4Km synthesizable core to BRECIS Communications, a communications company Communications Company is a communications unit of the United States Marine Corps. They are part of Combat Logistics Regiment 37 , 3rd Marine Logistics Group (3MLG) and III Marine Expeditionary Force (III MEF). The unit is based out of the Marine Corps Base Camp Smedley D. focused on leading-edge, broadband multi-service network processor architectures for the "last mile."
In particular, BRECIS has used the 4Km core in its new Multi-Service Processor family, announced here yesterday. The Multi-Service Processor is a new class of network processor software + silicon "platform" that is designed specifically for emerging broadband multi-service customer premise equipment targeted at enterprises or remote offices. Such equipment would include voice-and-data integrated access devices An IAD is a customer premises device that provides access to wide area networks and the Internet. Specifically, it aggregates multiple channels of information including voice and data across a single shared access link to a carrier or service provider PoP (Point of Presence). (IADs), IP-based PBXs, business-class routers, firewalls, and multi-service enterprise products.
"The 32-bit 4Km core gives BRECIS the performance, flexibility and scalability it needs for its advanced communications applications," said Derek Meyer, vice president of worldwide field operations at MIPS Technologies. "With this core our customers get a powerful, easy-to-integrate, synthesizable solution that is compatible with a broad spectrum of software and development tools that support the MIPS32 architecture."
George Alexy, CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. and president of BRECIS added, "We are very pleased with our selection of the MIPS architecture MIPS (originally an acronym for Microprocessor without Interlocked Pipeline Stages) is a RISC microprocessor architecture developed by MIPS Technologies. By the late 1990s it was estimated that one in three RISC chips produced were MIPS-based designs. . It provides our customers with the cost effective performance and the broad tool chain and application support required to address this exciting, new market for multi-service enterprise and service provider CPE (Customer Premises Equipment) Communications equipment that resides on the customer's premises.
CPE - Customer Premises Equipment equipment."
BRECIS is an innovator in integrated, broadband multi-service platform architectures for "the last mile." The company has invented a new network processor family called the "Multi-Service Processor" or "MSP (1) (Management Service Provider or Managed Service Provider) An organization that manages a customer's computer systems and networks which are either located on the customer's premises or at a third-party datacenter. " that will be enabling technology in next-generation, multi-service customer premise equipment. Such equipment will enable service providers to offer enterprises, small businesses, and consumers, a wide range of digital-based communications services delivered to a customer premise over increasingly-available, low-cost broadband connections such as T1, xDSL, cable, and wireless local loop. When deployed, such services will support applications such as multi-line voice over packet-based networks, high-speed data, self-provisioning, heightened security, virtual private networking, voice-enabled web content, entertainment on demand, and distributed call centers.
