Mumbai, Apr 4: HCL Technologies has announced a partnership with Wavesat, a silicon developer of WiMAX silicon and development platform.
The partnership seeks to leverage Wavesat's award winning Evolutive WiMAX DM256 Series, along with HCL's WiMAX MAC IP and Datacom engineering expertise to develop high-performance and low-cost 802.16 compliant solutions, the company informed BSE here today.
The first of several products to be jointly developed by the two companies will be launched in the first half of this year.
''The increasingly complex and still-evolving standards for WIMAX demand flexible, highly integrated solutions designed to meet exact specifications with a timely, price competitive and fully realised product,'' the company's Vice President Sandeep Kishore stated.
''We made an early start about 18 months back on the WiMAX MAC IP development and we are looking forward to collaborating with Wavesat, which is a recognised leader in the high growth WiMAX market. This partnership will provide both parties with the solutions to meet the demands of these fast-evolving emerging applications.''
