Asidua Releases IEEE 1588v2 Compliant Extension to WanStaX

Asidua announce Precision Time Protocol (PTP) extension (conforming to international standard IEEE-1588v2) to their WanStaX portfolio which provides PMC® WinPath customers with a cost effective and 'ready to go' PTP solution out of the box.

Belfast (I-Newswire) December 3, 2013 - Asidua, the technology solutions provider, today announced general availability of a further extension to their WanStaX® telecommunications software portfolio, with the release of the company's Precision Time Protocol (PTP) software solution conforming to international standard IEEE-1588v2.

PTP allows devices that are connected to packet-based telecommunications networks to be time synchronised to a very high level of accuracy. This is crucial for mobile backhaul networks based on technologies such as IP and Ethernet.

Asidua's WanStaX software is integrated with PMC®'s flexible and programmable WinPath® mobile backhaul processor family, which is optimised for all-IP networks. The combined solution allows telecommunications equipment manufacturers to develop platforms that meet the exacting requirements of the IEEE standard.

Eddie Millsopp, Head of Asidua's Telecommunications Systems Division said: "As more networks evolve to packet-based technologies, precise time synchronisation is becoming an integral facet of the telecommunications infrastructure. WinPath4's unique, programmable Carrier Ethernet Router-on-Chip architecture has the flexibility to leverage Asidua's software expertise to quickly address new features like PTP as they arise."

"We are pleased to announce availability of our IEEE-1588 PTP software component, which provides WinPath customers with a cost effective and 'ready to go' PTP solution out of the box."

Babak Samimi, Vice President of Marketing and Applications for PMC's Communications Business Unit added: "Our WinPath4 mobile backhaul processor is purpose-built to enable our customers to respond seamlessly to emerging networking needs of LTE. With Asidua's PTP solution readily available, our customers can now easily enable packet-timing support across their WinPath powered mobile backhaul platforms."

Steve Brankin, Asidua CEO commented: "Our PTP software is a further component within our WanStaX portfolio which accelerates development schedules for equipment manufacturers using PMC's WinPath products under a very cost effective commercial model. It has been developed as part of our long-standing and successful partnership with PMC."
