SAN JOSE: FutureSoft, a provider of communications software solutions, announced plans for routing solutions using the Intel Control Plane Platform Development Kit (CP-PDK). FutureSoft is developing a range of solutions using the CP-PDK, a component of the Intel Internet Exchange Architecture (IXA) Software Development Kit (SDK) 3.0. FutureSoft's routing solutions, using the Intel CP-PDK, will enable telecommunications and data communications equipment manufacturers targeting the access, metro and core router market to rapidly develop large carrier class equipment. The solutions will integrate protocol stacks from FutureSoft such as, PIM, OSPF, RIP, BGP along with L2TP, PPP, and IPSec with the Intel CP-PDK. "We have been working closely with Intel to build solutions on Intel's CP-PDK. The framework provides us a way to address the requirements of equipment with control and data plane separation. Coupled with our experience on network processors like the IXA family from Intel, our software components and solutions integrated with the CP-PDK, will enable Networking OEMs to build flexible and extensible products for different segments of the market," said T Sridhar, CTO & Vice-President Engineering, FutureSoft. "Intel, along with other leading NPF member companies like FutureSoft, is defining and establishing standards for both hardware and software that will help reduce the time and effort required to develop network systems," said Raj Yavatkar, Chief Software Architect for the Intel Internet Exchange Architecture. FutureSoft, a member of the Intel IXA Developer Network, plans to offer control plane, data plane and access solution components on Intel's network processor family. The company has already announced access router solution on the Intel IXC1100 control plane processor at the Network Processor Conference at San Jose, CA. FutureSoft also demonstrated support for OSPF, IS-IS and PIM with control plane PDK on IXP 12XX/24XX/28XX at the Intel Developer Forum in Sept 2002. The company plans to demonstrate more integrated solutions on Intel's IXA network processors in the near future.
