Agere Systems Inc. today announced that its TrueAdvantage Wireless Access Solution hardware and software wireless platform has been selected by Huawei Technologies, a wireless access equipment provider.

Huawei will be using Agere’s platform in its converged, next-generation, multiservice, multiprotocol wireless infrastructure equipment to be deployed around the world. Agere is demonstrating these wireless solutions during the 3G World Congress tradeshow in Hong Kong this week.

By adopting Agere Systems’ Advanced PayloadPlus APP300 network processor and LLP (Link Layer Processor) device, Huawei will build next-generation wireless platforms that integrate Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) networks and Internet Protocol (IP) networks.

According to Agere, this will enable wireless communications to enter a new era of better performance and higher reliability. Both companies will focus on accelerating 2G/3G deployments worldwide.

“To capitalize on this market growth, many service providers and equipment manufacturers are looking to unify their wireless platforms to converge 2/2.5/3G standards,” the company said.

“Currently, the number of 3G base stations represents about 28% of the worldwide total, but this is expected to balloon to 55% by 2009.”
