PacketAssure automatically adjusts Quality of Service profile as radio link quality fluctuates

WALLINGFORD, Conn., Jan. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultra Electronics DNE Technologies announced the availability of Release 1.1 operating software for its PacketAssure iQ line of Service Delivery Managers (SDMs).

"Release 1.1 software heralds a new level of automated capability for the PacketAssure product line," said Charles Reese, Vice President, Sales & Marketing at DNE Technologies.  "A rate-adaptive transmission device, such as a digital troposcatter modem, adjusts its data transmission rate as atmospheric conditions change, yet traffic management policies traditionally remain static until operators intervene.  The PacketAssure can now automatically adjust its Class of Service (CoS) parameters to ensure optimum bandwidth allocation, regardless of the operational data rate.  This feature demonstrates DNE's continued commitment to reducing lifecycle costs associated with IP networking."

This feature, known as Adaptive Transport, Auto CoS (ATAC), supports 23 individual data rates from 64 Kbps to 22 Mbps, and includes a library of preconfigured CoS profiles to ensure rapid setup.  Network operators can adjust these CoS profiles to address real-time changes in mission requirements.  Once set, the entire system runs without further operator intervention, regardless of bandwidth changes, creating a highly mobile, quickly deployable Quality of Service solution for serial-based transport.

The PacketAssure iQ1000 AND iQ1000e Service Delivery Managers with Release 1.1 software will be generally available in March 2011.  Pricing starts at $17,000 USD.
