TranSwitch Completes Licensing Agreements Totaling $4 Million
TranSwitch Corporation (NASDAQ: TXCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions in the rapidly growing consumer electronics and telecommunications markets, today announced the recent completion of two licensing agreements with major network equipment OEMs for a combined amount of approximately $4 million. The agreements provide for the licensing of proprietary software enabling critical voice-over-IP gateway (VoIP gateway) functionality. The two contracts include software licenses, consulting, and training. Most of the proceeds from the announced IP contracts are expected to be collected in the current (fourth) quarter.
“The licensed software is the product of many years of development and deployment in major telecom carriers and enables our licensees to continue future upgrades and investment in their Voice-over-IP products. As part of this arrangement, TranSwitch will continue to supply its telecom IC products,” said Dr. Ali Khatibzadeh, president and CEO of TranSwitch. “We are currently pursuing additional licensing opportunities with other telecom customers and I am pleased with the progress we are making in licensing both our telecom software and our High Speed Interconnect Intellectual Property cores. In addition, we are making solid progress in marketing our telecommunication patent portfolio which should yield a successful outcome.”
