TeamF1, Inc., the leader in embedded networking and security software, announced that it has been selected to integrate its Managed Access Point Solution software (MAPS) on to the new PowerPC 405EX processor from Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC) (NASDAQ:AMCC).
TeamF1′s Managed Access Point solution is a comprehensive turnkey software package that combines the latest 802.11 wireless standards with field-proven networking and security components. With its support for the latest drafts of the new 802.11n standard, MAPS is especially suited for high-performance wireless applications that need advanced management and hardware acceleration capabilities to meet demanding performance requirements.
The PowerPC 405EX is an embedded processor designed for next-generation WLAN applications—like those provided by TeamF1′s MAPS—requiring exceptional performance, small footprint, and low power. MAPS software also supports the 405EX’s Turbo Security Engine, which incorporates an advanced security engine with header/trailer processing capability and support for the broadest range of security protocols.
“The integration of MAPS with AMCC’s PowerPC 405EX will be another milestone in our strategic alliance,” said Mukesh Lulla, president of TeamF1. “Previously, we integrated our managed access point middleware (Air Secure Access Point, or ASAP) with AMCC’s PowerPC 405EP platform, enabling devices to add embedded secure AP features with minimal integration effort. Since MAPS was built on the foundation of ASAP, AMCC knows that its customers will receive software with field-proven components and a state-of-the-art management framework shared with other TeamF1 SMBware(TM) solutions.”
“We are pleased that TeamF1′s MAPS software will be available for the PowerPC 405EX processor,” said Charlie Ashton, director of software at AMCC. “The PowerPC 405EX is an ideal solution for enterprise WLAN access points and MAPS provides the networking and security features that our customers need. We expect many customers to adopt the PowerPC 405EX running MAPS software as a way to minimize time-to-market for their products.”
TeamF1 will be in AMCC’s demonstration suite 2424 of the Grand Hyatt Hotel at Computex Taipei 2007 in Taiwan, June 5-9, 2007, where more details on the Managed Access Point Solution on the PowerPC 405EX processor will be available. In addition, TeamF1 demonstrated it’s Secure Gateway Solution on the PowerPC(R) 440EPx Sequoia platform, announced at the Embedded Systems Conference, San Jose, earlier in the year.
The PowerPC 405EX will sample in the third quarter of 2007. The Managed Access Point Solution will be available on the PowerPC 405EX in Q4 of 2007 with flexible licensing terms including a source code license and a variety of production license (royalty) options.
