Network processors promise an advantage
New access solutions aim to allow wireline and wireless service providers to expand their product offerings, generate more revenues and reduce their costs.
Agere Systems has announced a portfolio of access solutions - featuring two new processor chips - it reckons will allow wireline and wireless service providers to expand their product offerings, generate more revenues and reduce their costs in the global market battle to provide converged access services to consumers Called TrueAdvantage, these solutions also allow the wireline and wireless access equipment industry to reduce product development costs by at least $120 million, while accelerating equipment deliveries supporting new services by up to two years
A launching pad for producing more intelligent converged access networks and services, TrueAdvantage access solutions consist of five critical and interrelated elements: feature-rich networking chips; robust software development tools; integrated hardware development systems; proven reference designs developed with global access equipment manufacturers; and turnkey application software.
The Advanced PayloadPlus 300 (APP300) network processor chip and link layer processor (LLP) chip are new networking devices that are the first of the family of TrueAdvantage solution elements to be unveiled in detail.
These two chips are central drivers for fuelling higher performance, lower cost converged access equipment and services.
