Flextronics Software Systems (FSS), formerly Hughes Software Systems, a leader in telecommunication signaling protocols, toolkits and frameworks, announced today that it will include data communication offerings from FutureSoft in its portfolio.

FSS significantly expands its portfolio by this move and positions itself as a single source for telecom and data-com, voice and wireless infrastructure software products.

These solutions are already deployed in a large number of top-tier customers' products, and integrated with a variety of operating systems and chipsets.

"With this move, our customers will be able to leverage an even broader portfolio of products in the areas of voice and data for both the fixed and mobile space. Additionally, we will be able to help our customers to develop newer products in areas like 3G, IMS, DSL, and WiMAX," said Mr. Ajay Gupta, Assistant Vice President & Head of Products, FSS.
