Product / Solution: Mobile/Base Protocol Stacks
Etherstack is a PMR technology company that specialises in well designed PMR protocol stacks and wide area IP soft-switched core networks. Etherstack software is used on fielded radio equipment around the world and as an engineering company they work closely with clients to achieve technical excellence and reduce risk, cost and time to market. Protocol stack and core network software are underlying and largely invisible components of a radio system. Working with Etherstack allows clients to concentrate on those components visible to users: radio design, packaging, form-factor, features, user interface, and system architecture. Mobile Stack (MS) and Basestation Stack (BS): This highly portable stack is available in two variants, Mobile Stack (MS) and Basestation Stack (BS). Written in highly portable ANSI C, the stack can be readily hosted on a wide range of popular microprocessors and DSPs. The dPMR™ stack provides a complete implementation including the PHY (physical layer) in software. The stack is available with Etherstack's ELITE automated test suite tools - to assist the manufacturer with integration, testing and maintenance of the implementation during the life cycle of the product.
Fast to Market
Etherstack offers a considerable suite of field-proven technology off-the-shelf. They also understand the PMR standards and have the tools, core architectures and specialist engineers required to develop new protocols or features extremely efficiently - keeping your time to market to a minimum. Their test tools also streamline your system and field testing effort.
Straightforward to Integrate
Etherstack protocols stacks are written in portable C90 code and isolated from hardware by a well-defined abstraction layer. Integrating a protocol stack onto your platform is a simple process of implementing hardware drivers to support the necessary (well-documented) interfaces. Candidate areas for DSP optimization are self-contained, making performance tuning simple
