CSR's BC5120 with BCSM software is specifically designed to tackle this problem and offers a quicker and lower cost alternative to current standalone Bluetooth chips.
Karen Parnell, Marketing Manager in CSR's Audio and Connectivity Business Unit commented, "BC5120 with BCSM provides consumer electronics designers with a solution designed with their needs in mind: a cost effective, easy to implement solution for integrating Bluetooth.
CSR's complete solution is available in Q1 2009 and includes BC5120, BCSM application software, a hardware development board and a software development kit (SDK).
Cruickshank continued, "With the BCSM project, MDSI is part of a team of premier hardware and software developers steered by a leading systems integrator-all with strong industry experience, a global presence, and a common vision to build a first class solution with pre-integrated, best-of-breed OSS applications.
The New Generation Plug and Play BCSM Catalyst project addresses the needs of MSOs as they strive to differentiate themselves in this competitive marketplace," said Robert Coffman, senior manager, OSS Service Lines, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young Telecom, Media & Networks US (CGE&Y).
The BCSM solution will be demonstrated next week in the Catalyst Showcase at TeleManagement World in Chicago, a semi-annual event produced by TM Forum.
Additionally, AT&T - Broadband was a key sponsor of the BCSM Catalyst providing MSO requirements to support the development of the plug and play architecture.

The participants for BCSM
include: Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, Cisco Systems, Cygent, Syndesis, MetaSolv Software, TIBCO, IGS, Portal Software, MDSI, Trendium, Micromuse, TCSI, and Sun Microsystems.
TCSI's premier product Catalant(R), a scalable, plug-and-play application designed to deliver element and network management solutions for next-generation networks, will be providing the performance management link in the BCSM Catalyst showcase.
TCSI is collaborating in the BCSM Catalyst showcase with leading technology team members, which include Cap Gemini Earnst & Young, Cisco, Cygent, IGS, MDSI Mobile Data Solutions, Metasolv, Micromuse, Portal, Sun Microsystems, Syndesis, TIBCO Software and Trendium, to offer MSOs rapid deployment in new markets.
The BCSM catalyst employs some of the concepts that will be central to our new generation OSS initiative, providing proof that the concepts work and that they function well in a commercial product environment.
The BCSM catalyst functionality becomes necessary as cable provider infrastructures become more complex.
