MILPITAS, Calif., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LSI Corporation today announced that it has shipped more than 4 million multi-service processor (MSP) ports enabling synchronous optical networking (SONET)/synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH), ATM and Ethernet applications. Multi-service processors are essential links in the telecommunications chain that demultiplex high-bandwidth data and voice transmissions, creating a vital bridge from the network core to metro and access networks.

"It's easy to overlook core technologies like multi-service processors," said Jag Bolaria, senior analyst for The Linley Group. "As covered in our Market Forecast Report and Market Share report, worldwide demand is growing with LSI continuing to be the market leader."

LSI(TM) MSP ports shipped to date can support more than five billion simultaneous video streams, the relevant performance metric of the post-YouTube Internet.

"LSI MSPs are turbochargers for the network," said Jim Anderson, vice president, Network and Storage Products Group, LSI. "They can significantly increase call and video streaming capacity in virtually any telecommunications environment."
