Intel Corporation (company) Intel Corporation - A US microelectronics manufacturer. They produced the Intel 4004, Intel 8080, Intel 8086, Intel 80186, Intel 80286, Intel 80386, Intel 486 and Pentium microprocessor families as well as many other integrated circuits and personal computer networking and Trillium Digital Systems, Inc. today announced that Trillium has become the first company to receive an equity investment from the recently created Intel Communications Fund.
Intel created the $200 million Communications Fund to invest in companies supporting Intel's key programs and initiatives in voice and data communications data communications, application of telecommunications technology to the problem of transmitting data, especially to, from, or between computers. In popular usage, it is said that data communications make it possible for one computer to "talk" with another. .
Trillium will optimize and port its communications software (communications, software) communications software - Application programs, operating system components, and probably firmware, forming part of a communication system. These different software components might be classified according to the functions within the Open Systems for telephony, the Internet, wireless and broadband networks This article or section needs copy editing for grammar, style, cohesion, tone and/or spelling.

The combination of Trillium software and Intel communications silicon will allow systems developers flexibility and reduced time to market for building networking gear with "off the shelf" hardware and software building blocks. In addition, Trillium will optimize selected communications software for embedded Intel Architecture (IA) processors to deliver a broad range of network services to the Internet.
"Trillium's award-winning line of communications A route, either land, water, and/or air, that connects an operating military force with a base of operations and along which supplies and military forces move. Also called LOC. See also base of operations; route. protocol software solutions, optimized for the IX Architecture and Intel's embedded IA processors, will make a strong combination," said Jeff Lawrence, president and CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization.
