HelloWLAN solution ideal for a variety of markets including residential gateway, military, PC, cellular, consumer electronics, and wireless
SAN JOSE, Calif. – December 3, 2003 – HelloSoft, Inc. today announced its family of customizable Wireless LAN Solutions, HelloWLAN™ consisting of the complete Physical Layer and Protocols for the IEEE 802.11-series Wireless LAN standards, including security. It is available as ‘designer-tailored’ licensable IP for semiconductor vendors and OEMs. The solution is unique in that it is fully customizable, allowing developers to specify the hardware/software partitioning for their specific target platforms to optimally leverage existing resources and to minimize additional hardware costs.
“The atomization of WLAN functionality into hardware and software modules alleviates the burden of adding Wireless LAN to an existing subsystem,” said Will Strauss, President of Forward Concepts. “From a cost and resource standpoint hardware/software partitioning makes sense and is obviously the trend moving forward.”
“The HelloWLAN™ is the most highly integrated, feature rich, flexible WLAN solution in the market today,” stated Krishna Yarlagadda, President and CEO, HelloSoft. “HelloSoft’s solution provides developers the flexibility by allowing them to customize the 802.11 protocol to meet their requirements, and is ideal for numerous market applications. Additionally, HelloSoft’s advanced design and patented algorithms reduce power consumption, design complexity and total system cost.”
The HelloWLAN™ family supports all Physical Layer standards (802.11b, a, g) and MAC/LLC standards and extensions (802.11, 802.2, 802.11e, 802.11i). Configurations included in the family are:
- Complete PHY and MAC in software
- PHY in RTL and full MAC in software
- PHY, Security algorithms in RTL and remaining MAC in Software
- PHY, Security algorithms, CP engine, Fragmentation/De-fragmentation in RTL and partial MAC in Software
