Intel and Hewlett Packard (HP) have forged an alliance to develop standards-based communications systems for the telecoms equipment manufacturer market.
The products will feature Intel Itanium processors, embedded Intel architecture processors and other silicon from the chip giant.
HP plans to offer products based on rack mount servers and the Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture specification.
The products are designed to enable manufacturers to consolidate wireless and wireline network infrastructure designs around flexible and interoperable platforms.
Intel has also named HP as the first Premier member of its communications and embedded developer alliance, dubbed the Intel Communications Alliance.
"Telecoms equipment manufacturers and carriers realise the value of transitioning to modular systems based on cost efficient, off-the-shelf, interoperable and reusable hardware and software building blocks," said Howard Bubb, vice president and general manager of the Intel Network Processing Group.
"The use of silicon, software and platform modular building blocks from Intel and other members of the Alliance help manufacturers and carriers reduce costs, improve performance and speed time-to-market for new products and revenue-generating services."
