Agere Teams with HCL on Network Processor Designs

Agere Systems introduced a simplified Functional Programming Interface (FPI) software platform that runs on its network processors, such as its PayloadPlus APP550 for multiservice networking gear. Agere's improved FPI software features a comprehensive suite of protocols and services for target applications. In addition, the software facilitates quick addition of revenue-generating, differentiating features with relatively small, localized changes in code.

Agere also announced a service agreement with HCL Technologies to help enable telecom equipment manufacturers to deliver their products to earlier and at lower cost. Dedicated teams from HCL are working closely with Agere on the FPI software and will provide customization and system integration services to Agere's customers.
