Postitive signs for Effnets ROHC

Report this content

Positive signs for Effnet's ROHC Effnet recently participated in "ROHC in the City", the fourth ROHC interoperability test together with Ericsson, Acticom, ICR and IRISA hosted by Acticom in Berlin. After one week of intensive testing, it is clear that Effnet's ROHC implementation is of very high standard. Previous interoperability tests were: "ROHC Bay Cough" at Roke Manor hosted by Siemens, "ROHC in the Desert" in Tucson hosted by Effnet and "Arctic ROHC" in Luleå hosted by Ericsson. Other attendees at these tests have been Nokia and Panasonic. Effnet has attended all four interoperability tests with consistently excellent results. During recent meetings with operators in Europe it has become evident that demand for ROHC will increase during 2003. One of Effnet's existing ROHC customers also recently validated this positive market trend, by ordering an updated version of ROHC for further integration into their 3G equipment. Header Compression reduces the size of an IP packet header by removing or shrinking header fields. When IP packet headers are compressed, more of the packet's payload, or user data, is transferred in the same amount of time thereby reducing the need for bandwidth. Header Compression means faster, more reliable and lower cost services for wireless Internet operators and customers. Effnet ROHC is a software implementation based on IETF RFC 3095, delivered as an ANSI C language reference implementation, which runs on Sparc (Solaris), x86 (Linux, Windows, FreeBSD), and ARM7 but can easily be ported to other platforms. Effnet ROHC can optionally be provided with a test environment, HCSim, to validate operation when integrated into the customer's target environment. A new major release of Effnet ROHC will be launched early 2003. About Effnet Effnet develops and sells integrated software, Header Compression, to manufacturers of network products.
