Briefs: InterDigital, Infineon team up 3G software

Jan 19, 2006

Longtime allies InterDigital Communications and Infineon Technologies are teaming up on development of HSDPA software for 3G mobile networks.

The companies announced Thursday the new venture would lead to third-generation protocol stack software for Infineon's 3G platform and accelerated launch of a 3GPP Release 5 product.

3GPP stands for Third Generation Partnership Project, an organization that sets worldwide technical standards for 3G networks. Release 5 is the next evolutionary step in developing standards for Universal Mobile Telecommunications Systems.

Infineon's Tom Linder said in a news release that his company's collaboration with InterDigital would lead to committed HSDPA deliveries later in the current quarter.
