COPENHAGEN -- TPACK and Altera Corporation have entered into a joint marketing and sales agreement whereby Altera will assist TPACK in promotion of its 3rd Generation of packet mapper and switching technology on a global basis.

TPACK's 3rd Generation of solutions includes 10 Gbps NG-SONET/SDH packet mapper and 40 Gbps switching technology.
