"Axis Communications announced today the availability of integrated systems-on-a-chip and embedded Linux solutions to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). These solutions will allow developers to rapidly prototype new product concepts and reduce the overall design effort for developing network peripherals and emerging mobile devices. To assist OEMs, a new Technology Division has been formed to provide engineering resources, technical support and development tools, including reference designs, evaluation boards, source code, documentation and technical support."

"Axis has a rich history as an OEM provider, with many leading companies expressing tremendous interest in our core technologies for their own product development," said Peter Ragnarsson, Axis Communications president and CEO. "We will equip these OEMs with significant time-to-market advantages, by providing innovative solutions based on our expertise in integrating systems- on-a-chip technology and open-source embedded software."

"Ragnarsson, who was appointed president and CEO last month, is positioning Axis to expand on its global leadership in network connectivity and be a trailblazer in the emerging wireless and mobile communications markets. Earlier this year, Axis formed their Mobile Internet Division to develop and market products and services that take advantage of new technologies, such as Bluetooth wireless technology. These offerings will address the needs of a wide range of participants in the value chain, including end users, ISP's, telcos and major communications infrastructure players."
