FREMONT, Calif., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Centillium Communications today announced Entropia(TM) III-C, the newest member of its suite of system-on-chip (SoC) Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) solutions, received one of Internet Telephony Magazine's 2007 Product of the Year Awards. Internet Telephony Magazine, published by Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC), focuses on the rapidly growing VoIP/IP telephony industry.

"Centillium developed Entropia III-C as a smaller-sized, highly integrated version of our flagship VoIP SoC with cost structures and channel densities that squarely target the requirements of business communications and subscriber loop infrastructures. We're honored that Entropia III-C will join the ranks of Internet Telephony's prestigious products of the year for 2007."
