RadiSys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a leading global provider of advanced embedded solutions, and NEI (NASDAQ: NENG), a leading provider of server appliance products and services for storage, security and communications software vendors, today announced a distribution agreement to deliver best-in-class ATCA solutions. The agreement unites each company‚Äôs complementary strengths to best serve telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) and service providers that require ATCA standards-based, commercial-off-the-shelf systems for their next-generation communications applications.

offering TEMs such services as ATCA and NEBS frame-level design, integration and testing is a growing opportunity within the ATCA space.

"This new relationship is a natural extension of RadiSys' 20-year philosophy of collaborating closely with ecosystem partners and customers," said Christian Lepiane, vice president of global sales and service at RadiSys. "Combining the depth and breadth of our ATCA portfolio, including our integrated 10 GB Ethernet application-ready platform, with NEI's established reputation for ATCA and NEBS frame-level design, integration, and testing as an integral element of its dedicated technical services and support team, will help our mutual customers achieve their time-to-market business imperatives," Lepiane concluded.

"We're partnering with RadiSys for three key reasons," said Hugh Kelly, NEI senior vice president of marketing. "First, our respective capabilities are uniquely aligned with ATCA market needs. The difference between us and other frame-level integrators is that we can combine and customize ATCA and NEBS servers, as well as perform power and thermal testing and NEBS certification on the entire integrated frame. Second, partnering with RadiSys, the ATCA market leader, is in line with NEI's commitment to offering our customers best-in-class solutions," Kelly continued. "And, finally, we already have an extensive experience with ATCA-based solutions because NEI served, and continues to serve, the customers of Intel's former modular communications platform business which RadiSys acquired in 2007," he explained. "This means that we will hit the ground running."

Commenting on the announcement, Lee Doyle, Group Vice President of market researcher IDC, said "this agreement makes total sense in light of ATCA market developments. In fact," he added, "offering TEMs such services as ATCA and NEBS frame-level design, integration and testing is a growing opportunity within the ATCA space."
