--Nov. 2, 1998--
Spider Software enhances SpiderTCP to enable OEMs to quickly
produce solutions which respond to the growing demand for
Multicast IP services.
Spider Software, the premier supplier of portable STREAMS-based communications software, today announced the availability of a new release of SpiderTCP; Spider's portable STREAMS-based implementation of the TCP/IP protocol suite.
SpiderTCP release 9.0 has been enhanced with new features which improve functionality, portability, interoperability and maintainability. This includes support for scalable Multicast applications, raw sockets, improved interoperability with Spider's Frame Relay, X.25 and ISDN products, improved testing and test scripts, provision of protocol decodes and fine tuning of SpiderTCP for use on real time operating systems.
"Stratus has been an early adopter of the IP Multicast code from Spider. IP Multicast is a feature that is eagerly anticipated by our own customer base," commented Kathy Johnson, Manager of Engineering, Software East at Stratus. "Our engineering teams have worked in close collaboration during all phases of the IP Multicast product development. This close working relationship has resulted in a top-notch product which should prove to be a real winner in the marketplace."
Nick Felisiak, Chairman & Technical Director of Spider Software, said: "The key feature of this new release is Multicast over IP which is recognised as the only practical and effective way of electronically disseminating business information to distributed world-wide destinations. Spider Software's existing and new OEM customers can now build this functionality into their products, enabling their solutions to scale for mass market communication and dissemination of information on Intranets and the Internet".
SpiderTCP is a STREAMS-based implementation of the TCP/IP open communications standard. It comprises a kernel stack which incorporates TCP, UDP, IP (including subnetting, IP routing, multicasting and multihoming), ICMP, IGMP, ARP, SNAP/LLC1 and an example Ethernet driver. SpiderTCP also has a set of BSD applications, a BSD socket programming interface, support for Transport Layer Interface (TLI) and DLPI.
In addition, it supports IP over X.25 or Frame Relay (with SpiderX.25 or SpiderFRAME-RELAY) and includes an SNMP agent. SpiderTCP can run with any operating system which has STREAMS support (e.g. SVR4, VxWorks) or with any other operating system environment using SpiderSTREAMS.
SpiderTCP R9.0 is available now. For more information, visit Spider Software on stand #1928 at the Embedded Systems Conference, or contact your nearest Spider Software sales office.
