The BCM1100 IP phone engine for use in Ethernet IP telephones. The chip is said to enable manufacturers to deliver IP phones with the features required for large-scale deployment of desktop IP telephony. An Ethernet switch guarantees voice priority, and enables the office PC and IP phone to share a single LAN connection, eliminating the expense of a second LAN drop. The BCM1100 also includes two Ethernet transceivers, and analog codecs for handset and speakerphone support. Ethernet backbones are increasingly chosen to deliver broadband access in residential high-rises and other multi-dwelling units. The BCM1100 supports this market by affording residential VoIP gateways that will connect traditional analog telephones to these Ethernet backbones. The BCM1100 supports H.323, H.248/Megaco, and SIP protocol stacks and is currently sampling to the company's Early Access Partners. The chip is priced below $25 in volume quantities and is offered in a 256-pin plastic BGA package.
