Another piece of the complex jigsaw puzzle that Intel is using to build its IXA networking strategy has snapped into place. The firm said late yesterday it had opened its wallet and paid cash for a telephony solutions firm Picazo Comms, which will be used to bolster it and its Dialogic subsidiary. Intel said that the acquisition of Picazo will supply intellectual property, sales skills and engineers to the CT Media server software it is developing. The IXA jigsaw that Intel is putting together is part of a complex plan to create so called "building blocks" for the Internet, with lucrative telco and other infrastructure providers using its knowhow to build the networks of the future. CT Media will focus on the converging voice and data media market, but it's not just all about software. On the back of this initiative Intel hopes to sell servers and goodness knows what sort of other widgets, as it uses its deep pockets to diversify its business away from being just a microprocessor company. Pizaco, based in San Jose, will be merged into Intel's rapidly growing Communications Product Group. Although it is thrifty with its money, Intel is prepared to open its wallet and release rapacious killer vampire moths to stake its future claim in Internet infrastructure. If you want to download all the current pieces of the IXA jigsaw and see which of those pesky blue bits are missing, you can get a heap of Adobe PDF files from this Intel place. ® Related Stories Analysis: Intel's cunning network plan Intel mycelium: the spores bud Intel acquires another firm as IXA mycelium spreads
