Agere Systems Inc. and Ubicom Inc. have collaborated to jointly deliver 802.11b/Wi-Fi reference designs. The two companies will work together to offer solutions targeted to meet cost, performance, size, and time-to-market requirements for WLAN applications.

The first offering from Agere and Ubicom is a single-board reference design for access point, repeater and Ethernet bridge solutions using Agere's two-chip WiFi solution and Ubicom's IP2000 processor and software platform. This design is engineered to make WLAN technology more readily accessible for home and small office users.

"This reference design pairs breakthrough technology from Agere and Ubicom to deliver an optimized platform for wireless product development," said Bulent Celebi, CEO of Ubicom. "By combining the industry's first integrated 802.11b radio and baseband module from Agere with Ubicom's revolutionary processor and software platform, we give ODMs the tools they need to rapidly and cost-effectively develop wireless products. This will drive the broad deployment of WLANs, and move the industry further along the path toward making communications ubiquitous and transparent."

Ubicom and Agere have agreed on joint efforts to support customer implementations of the reference design. The two companies expect to begin sampling to customers in April. It will be offered as an upgrade to Ubicom's wireless development kit and as a part of Agere's WaveLAN portfolio.
