Helps Developers Build Robust Telecommunication Connectivity

Applications for VxWorks and Solaris Environments

Interphase Corporation (NASDAQ:INPH), an international supplier of next-generation networking technologies, today announced the immediate, worldwide availability of Software Development Kits (SDKs) that allow developers to integrate the Interphase 4535 PMC Multiprotocol T1/E1 Communication Controller into numerous telecommunication applications running in VxWorks and Solaris operating system environments.

The VxWorks and Solaris SDKs include operating system drivers, sample code, software tools and documentation that aid productivity and speed time-to-market for developers creating third generation wireless, broadband Internet access and AIN communication systems. These new development tools enhance Interphase's expansion into the telecommunications arena as a leading provider of communications controllers for next-generation service provider networks.

"As more devices become connected over telecommunication networks, especially via wireless and the Internet, service providers require superior technology that will help them get reliable, innovative services to market quickly," said Linsey Matthews, "Interphase Embedded Systems Product Marketing Manager. With the release of our new SDKs, embedded system developers can now use the 4535 to quickly deliver a new generation of applications to their customers that take full advantage of the leading operating systems in the communications industry."

VxWorks is one of the most widely adopted real-time operating system (RTOS) in the embedded industry. The VxWorks SDK for the 4535 includes:

-- Operating system drivers for VxWorks 5.4 and Tornado 2

development environments

-- Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and protocol support

for ATM (AAL0 and AAL5), SS7 (MTP2), ISDN, Frame Relay, X.25,


-- Robust software tools that greatly facilitate third party

development including configuration utilities, debuggers,

protocol analyzers, dump utilities and trace utilities

Solaris, known for its robustness and scalability, is the leading non-RTOS operating system in use for communication applications according to recent research from Venture Development Corporation. The Solaris SDK for the 4535 includes:

-- Opeating system drivers for Solaris 2.6, 7 and 8

-- APIs and protocol support for ATM (AAL0 and AAL5), SS7 (MTP2),

ISDN, Frame Relay, X.25, PPP, and HDLC

-- SNMP sub-agent

-- Robust software tools including configuration utilities,

debuggers, protocol analyzers, dump utilities and trace
