Perfisans Networks Corporation, a next-generation semiconductor designer focused on the Gigabit Ethernet market, has announced the first booking for its proprietary network accelerator chips.
Under the agreement, Perfisans will supply its ENA1001 gigabit network acceleration chip to DBL Technology Company. The agreement calls for more than $1.1 million in sales over a period of 12 months. DBL is a maker of Voice-Over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) communications equipment, based in Shenzhen.
DBL will integrate the ENA1001 gigabit network chip into several of its product designs. With Perfisans' TOE technology, DBL officials believe they can significantly increase their product's price/performance ratio and allow them to outperform their competitors.
Voice over IP, which enables telephone communication via the Internet, is one of the fastest-growing areas of the telecommunications market, and is expected to eventually replace the traditional telephone system, as major telecommunication companies continue to move to VoIP systems. Perfisans' chips are thought to improve and simplify the design of VOIP products, in addition to boosting the performance of Ethernet data-networks in business and home computer systems.
