LSI Announces First Milestone to Build Ecosystem of World-Class Networking Providers


Enea joins in cooperative effort to accelerate deployment of next-generation networking architecture

MILPITAS, Calif. – LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced the first strategic collaboration in its effort to create a global ecosystem of leading networking technology developers who are committed to accelerating the deployment of wireless, wireline and enterprise networking infrastructure. Following its February, 2009 announcement of a blueprint for asymmetrical multicore architecture, the collaboration is a key step in the company’s strategy to significantly reduce OEM development time and effort by providing a common platform for seamless integration of components from leading hardware and software suppliers.

Enea, a leading global provider of real-time operating systems for telecommunications and enterprise applications, is collaborating with LSI to help create the planned ecosystem. Previously, LSI and Enea collaborated to optimize Enea® dSPEED software for the LSITM StarPro® family of multicore media processors. The collaboration will now be expanded to include software solutions for the LSI portfolio of networking multicore processors.

“LSI is a leader in the development of networking infrastructure and multicore communications processors,” said Per Akerberg, president and CEO, Enea. “The combination of Enea software and LSI multicore technology will enable a new generation of highly scalable solutions with significant increases in performance and cost efficiency.”

Currently, telecom OEMs are required to assemble software and hardware components from many different suppliers in order to create systems that network service providers can easily integrate into their networks. LSI’s strategy for earlier collaboration with software and hardware providers is intended to result in the development of a set of optimized, pre-integrated and highly scalable platforms that should substantially reduce both the time and cost of delivering next-generation systems to the market.

“We are creating an open, state-of-the-art platform for carrier-class and enterprise networks,” said Charlie Kawwas, vice president of marketing, Network Components Division, LSI. “As a result of this strategic collaboration, OEMs should be able to accelerate the delivery of their systems while significantly decreasing development time and system cost.”

Asymmetrical multicore architectures allow multiple programmable cores to be aggregated on a single chip, and for the capability of those cores to vary depending upon application and network environment. Collaborative efforts such as the one LSI is announcing today will enable infrastructure applications to be developed based on the LSI asymmetrical multicore architecture, including deep packet inspection, traffic management, voice and video transcoding, encryption, baseband, control and user plane processing.
