TeamF1 and AMCC Expand Support for Advanced Wireless and Security Solutions



TeamF1, Inc., the high-performance embedded networking and security software company, and Applied Micro Circuits Corp., a leading vendor of embedded PowerPC® and network
processors announced expanded support of TeamF1’s secure networking solutions on AMCC’s
PowerPC family of highly integrated embedded microprocessors. This is the latest milestone
in a strategic alliance which combines TeamF1’s expertise in embedded security and
advanced networking software with AMCC’s global leadership in embedded PowerPC processors.

The two companies have committed to jointly develop highly integrated, advanced
networking and security platforms for OEMs and ODMs in the Wi-Fi® and VPN application
space. Their partnership focuses on demonstrating optimized hardware architectures and
software components designed to leverage specialized hardware resources.

Following the recent successful porting of TeamF1 products on AMCC’s 440GR based
Yellowstone evaluation kit earlier this year, TeamF1 has now integrated its secure access
point software (Air Secure Access Point or “ASAP”) on AMCC’s “Taihu” development platform
– a low-cost, easy-to-use evaluation kit for AMCC’s PowerPC 405EP processor. This new
integrated platform consists of TeamF1’s ASAP software, TeamF1’s secure management
middleware, AMCC’s PowerPC 405EP based Taihu evaluation kit and a standard off-the-shelf
PCI-based Wi-Fi chipset. This pre-validated solution is targeted towards the growing
market for low-cost, yet full-featured secure access points and wireless gateways.

TeamF1’s ASAP software provides rich capabilities such as the ability to concurrently
support many different generations of 802.11 security technology found in today’s wireless
networks — from WEP through WPA, up to WPA2/ 802.11i in either Personal (Pre-shared Key)
or Enterprise (802.1X) modes. AMCC’s PowerPC 405EP processor with integrated network
connectivity and a 32-bit PCI v2.2 interface, when combined with any standard PCI-based
Wi-Fi® chipset provides the necessary performance and interface features for a
complete cost-sensitive ODM/OEM-ready access point solution. To further assist OEMs/ODMs
with production-ready solutions, TeamF1 also offers managed VPN/firewall gateway
capabilities with ASAP-enabled wireless connectivity in an easily configurable and
re-brandable package.

This integrated hardware/software reference design providing a complete secure access point solution is available immediately from AMCC and TeamF1. Additionally, TeamF1’s network security components such as V-IPSecure (IPsec and IKE), SSLimSecure (SSL), SSHield (SECSH) and authentication solutions (Kerberos, RADIUS, digital certificates) pre-validated on AMCC’s PowerPC® processor family are also available individually under flexible licensing terms directly from TeamF1.
