Performance Technologies Introduces NexusWare WAN Protocol Environment

11/9/2005 - Performance Technologies (Nasdaq NM: PTIX), a leading developer of systems, platforms, components and software, announced NexusWareTM WAN, an enhanced offering of its WAN communications protocol environment. NexusWare WAN offers installable protocol support coupled with a flexible development environment for the company's popular packet-based network access products.

Performance Technologies' WAN protocol products, shipping for over ten years, have been used by numerous equipment manufacturers and government agencies for telecom, military and civilian applications. By offering added WAN protocol development flexibility and leveraging the company's Linux-based NexusWare Core development, integration and management environment, developers have the ability to add a wide range of protocol packages to NexusWare Core. This allows for the creation of powerful and flexible sub-systems that address multiple communications applications.

"Traditionally our WAN protocols have been sold as individual software packages. While we will continue to offer this format, we will also have NexusWare WAN, which furthers our commitment to provide tightly integrated, installable software packages for NexusWare Core," said Steve Wigent, product manager for Performance Technologies. "This approach to software allows developers to easily add and remove software packages to NexusWare Core as their requirements change, and represents a significant reduction in development efforts, system integration costs and time-to-market."

NexusWare WAN provides WAN connectivity, multi-protocol processing and a well-defined, easy-to-use application programming interface (API) that allows interoperability with WAN stacks such as HDLC, X.25 and Frame Relay. Performance Technologies' WAN protocols, powerful integrated development environment and high performance CompactPCI® controllers provide a complete WAN development solution for OEMs.

NexusWare WAN marks the latest addition to the growing NexusWare Linux-based software suite. The base product, NexusWare Core, enables users of Performance Technologies' Advanced Managed PlatformsTM and stand-alone embedded hardware to rapidly develop and deploy value-added capabilities with their solutions. Other products in this software line include NexusWare C7, an MTP-2 starting point for SS7 development, NexusWare ISM, programming and control tools for intelligent shelf management, and NexusWare MG, protocols and tools for media gateway control, IP call control and PSTN signaling.

NexusWare WAN software solutions are available immediately and are priced below $795 at OEM quantities.
