  • Long Beach, CA (January 16, 2006) ─ Today at the Bus and Board 2006 Conference in Long Beach, California, SBS Technologies®, (NASDAQ: SBSE), a leading designer and manufacturer of embedded communication solutions, expands their already extensive line of AdvancedMC® modules with the Telumâ„¢ 1204-O3–the first intelligent multi-service interface module to be offered in the AdvancedMC format. Targeted at convergent gateway and ATM to IP interworking applications like convergent 3G wireless, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Media Gateways, DSLAMs and Switch/Routers, the Telum 1204-O3 offers flexible functionality and high performance in an AdvancedMC form-factor. The module's versatile interworking capability allows the Telum 1204-O3 to independently interconnect between any supplied protocols, which can be selected on a per-port basis. For increased adaptability, a full set of IP services can be offered over any Layer 2 protocol including ATM AAL5, PPP and Ethernet. "As the communications infrastructure world converges to IP networks, equipment manufacturers are looking for high-performance, cost-effective technology to enable their customers to migrate their legacy voice and data equipment to IP networks", said Rubin Dhillon, VP of Communications and Enterprise for SBS. "The Telum 1204-O3 is essentially a gateway in an AdvancedMC module format specifically designed to facilitate the migration from legacy networks to IP-based networks. This product is flexible and software configurable, enabling customers to support a wide range of existing protocols as well as emerging standards." An intelligent AdvancedMC module, this module enables high-performance packet processing, directly terminating and switching traffic on the card rather than by sending traffic to an off-board processor. This enables system designers to build high-performance communications systems using a distributed processing architecture. The Telum 1204-O3 is a multi-service card supporting ATM and IP interworking with the capability of processing up to 750,000 packets per second. This module supports local port-to-port Automatic Protection Switching (APS) to enable continuous service in the event an OC-3 link should fail. By using Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) connectors, the Telum 1204-O3 can operate in OC-3 multi-mode or OC-3 single mode for configuration flexibility. In keeping with the European Union's environmental policies, a RoHS version will be made available. Price and Availability: Telum 1204-O3 AdvancedMC module pricing starts at US$2,799, and is available now. # # # About SBS Technologies® SBS Technologies, Inc.
