LSI introduces broadband networking software with IPv6 capabilities

LSI Corporation and Aricent today announced an expansion
of their strategic collaboration to accelerate the deployment of
wireless and wireline networking infrastructure and enterprise
networking systems to the global marketplace. Aricent and LSI currently
offer pre-integrated software stacks for multi-service business
gateways that run on LSI APP communications
processors and have co-developed broadband networking software with
IPv6 capabilities. Now, the two companies have extended their
collaboration to wireless and additional wireline infrastructure

"Aricent is a global innovation, technology and services company
with a goal of providing OEMs with comprehensive software frameworks
and engineering services, which ultimately reduce development risk and
costs, while speeding time to market of wireless and wireline
infrastructure solutions," said C.P Murali, senior vice president, OEM
BU at Aricent. "Our laser focus clearly differentiates us as a truly
unique supplier, co-creating together with our customers the world’s
most innovative communications products and services."

LSI develops highly integrated, multicore communications platforms
that enable high-bandwidth, content-rich services. LSI and Aricent
expect that pre-integration of their products will enable OEMs to
reduce product development cost and time to market by as much as 50
percent. Aricent has a long history of developing production-ready
software based on LSI multicore processor products.

"Demand for next-generation rich media services continues to
escalate, and the pace of innovation is causing product development
intervals to shrink," said Charlie Kawwas, vice president of marketing,
Networking Components Division, LSI. "A key element of our strategy is
to partner with global providers like Aricent who can provide standard
products and custom software services so OEMs can rapidly develop
next-generation solutions at significantly lower cost."

Currently, telecom OEMs are required to integrate software and
hardware components from many different suppliers in order to create
next-generation systems for service provider networks. Through early
collaboration, LSI expects to enable pre-integrated, pre-optimized
solutions for OEMs that reduce the time and cost of delivering systems.
