RadiSys Partners with EZchip to Help Improve Services of Communications Providers

Shares of EZchip Semiconductor (EZCH) were marginally higher pre-market Thursday after the fabless semiconductor firm partnered with wireless infrastructure systems provider RadiSys (RSYS) to help improve services offered by Communications Services Providers (CSPs).  Under the terms of the partnership, EZchip’s next-generation NPS network processor will be integrated with RadiSys’ FlowEngine traffic distribution solutions, helping CSPs guarantee services and roll-out new services in a software-defined network (SDN) environment.

“We are pleased to partner with Radisys to solve CSPs scalability challenges for SDN as Radisys has developed a truly innovative solution with its FlowEngine technology, delivering the intelligent traffic distribution CSPs require as they disaggregate the control plane from the data plane in an SDN deployment,” said Eli Fruchter, CEO, EZchip.

In recent pre-market activity, EZCH was moving in the upper half of the 52-week range of $14.30 to $26.06 while RSYS was inactive, after closing in the upper end of the narrow 52-week range of $1.79 to $3.02.
