RadiSys and Aricent Join Forces to Demonstrate WiMAX Solution at 3GSM World Congress


BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 12 / -- RadiSys Corporation (NASDAQ:RSYS), a leading global provider of advanced embedded solutions, and Aricent(TM), the full-service, full-spectrum communications software company, today announced the two companies will jointly demonstrate this week at the 3GSM World Congress an Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA) hardware and software platform designed specifically for WiMAX networks.

The two companies will showcase a solution that features the Aricent SigASN WiMAX Gateway software running on the RadiSys® Promentum(TM) ATCA SYS-6010 - the industry's first and only generally available 10 Gigabit common managed platform for high-bandwidth network element and data plane applications. RadiSys 10 Gigabit ATCA platforms are invaluable to equipment manufacturers developing complex network elements such as WiMAX ASN Gateways, 3G Radio Network Controllers/Base Station Controllers, IPTV infrastructure and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) compliant media gateways, application servers and media servers/MRFPs.

"ATCA has quickly become a critical component in designing wireless networks," said Scott Grout, CEO, RadiSys. "This architecture provides a foundation that allows equipment manufacturers to meet or exceed performance objectives necessary to target next generation subscriber and traffic growth driven by 3G, IMS and WiMAX networks," said Grout.

Using the same managed platform for a variety of applications, manufacturers of WiMAX ASN Gateways and other wireless solutions can reduce overall development time by up to 50 percent and significantly cut development, lifecycle and equipment costs.

"As communications equipment manufacturers face rising costs and increasingly shorter development cycles, the ability to take advantage of a standard managed platform is more important than ever," said Sanjay Dhawan executive vice president and chief strategy officer, Aricent. "Allowing equipment manufacturers to focus on developing higher value applications rather then spending precious resources developing base communication protocols and platform management solutions is invaluable. The RadiSys ATCA SYS-6010 provides this comprehensive platform to enable roaming in WiMAX networks."
