EDINBURGH -- Spider Software (www.spider.com), a division of Artesyn Communication Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATSN) and supplier of STREAMS-based portable networking and telecommunications software, today announced it will port its SpiderTCP and SpiderSTREAMS products to the IBM PowerNP 4GS3. The SpiderTCP stack provides IBM PowerNP with a scalable product allowing multiple connections. Multihoming is a major benefit, in that it provides a multihoming facility required to connect multiple Logical Networks, to a host via one single physical interface. This benefit offers the ability to reduce development time and therefore improve, time to market. Modularity of the SpiderTCP product due to the STREAMS-based design was another key factor in making our software attractive to IBM. "This is an important step in our drive to more fully enable customers to take full advantage of standard silicon that can help them differentiate their products," said Steve Longoria, director of marketing, network processing, IBM Microelectronics.
