TranSwitch Corporation (NASDAQ: TXCC), a leading provider of semiconductor

with major network equipment OEMs for a combined amount of approximately $4

deployment in major telecom carriers and enables our licensees to continue
future upgrades and investment in their Voice-over-IP products. As part of
this arrangement, TranSwitch will continue to supply its telecom IC products,”
said Dr. Ali Khatibzadeh, president and CEO of TranSwitch. “We are currently
pursuing additional licensing opportunities with other telecom customers and I
