ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Xelic, Inc., a leading provider of Engineering Design Services and Networking Intellectual Property today announced that Lightwaves Systems has selected their Frame Mapped GFP core (XCGFPFM) for integration into future products.

The XCGFPFM will encapsulate/de-encapsulate frame mapped client traffic which includes Ethernet, PPP, MAPOS, and proprietary packet types in compliance with the ITU-T G.7041/Y.1303 specification. Generic Framing Procedure (GFP) Transmit and Receive functions operate independently to provide full duplex communication. The XCGFPFM core supports data rates up to 2.5Gb/s and is suitable for both FPGA and ASIC implementations.

“We did extensive research prior to selecting Xelic as our core provider,” stated Joe Gerke, VP of Operations for Lightwaves Systems. “Xelic was chosen because they were responsive and well equipped to meet our developmental specifications and timelines and offered extremely flexible licensing terms.”

“Xelic delivered the core on-time with first pass success enabling us to meet a very tight engineering schedule,” said Phil Kennedy, President of Lightwaves Systems. “We expect to be working closely with Xelic for years to come.”
