PMC-Sierra and Wintegra Inc. have entered into a strategic relationship to focus on system solutions for multi-service networking, passive optical networking, metro networking, and wireless service backhaul. The initiative combines PMC-Sierra's portfolio of communications networking solutions together with Wintegra's access packet processor family and customized software.

As part of the strategic relationship, PMC-Sierra has made an equity investment in Wintegra, which has design and support centers located in Texas, Israel and Scotland.

The companies' first reference design solution for the Metro Access market includes Wintegra's 787M6 WinPath access processor and Universal Front End (UFE) combined with PMC-Sierra's TEMUX-84 and ARROW framer/mapper devices to create a comprehensive OC-3 multi-service solution supporting IP, ATM, Frame Relay, IMA, ATM circuit emulation, and Pseudo Wire Emulation Edge to Edge (PWE3) over a channelized OC-3. The board-level solution features glueless hardware connectivity between respective silicon components and customized systems software that unifies the entire systems configuration. A joint reference design for this solution is currently available to customers.

In addition, the companies are also working on additional reference design solutions for the metro networking and wireless infrastructure markets.
