Autotalks, Marben and Navya Showcase V2X for Self-driving Vehicles


FR-Bordeaux (PRWEB) - October 06, 2015

The demonstration presents how V2X communication technology can significantly improve and secure driverless vehicles that operate on open roads.

Autotalks, a leading supplier of automotive-grade V2X communication processors and RF transceivers, Marben Products SAS, the leading provider of V2X - Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure - software solution, and Navya, an innovative self-driving and electric vehicle supplier, are very excited to partner at ITS World Congress 2015 in Bordeaux to showcase V2X technology key contribution towards autonomous vehicles.

The demonstration, taking place outdoors, presents how the communication of Vehicles and traffic lights based on DSRC 802.11p technology, can significantly improve and secure driverless vehicles that operate on open roads. Three brand new Navya vehicles are autonomously transporting delegates from the exhibition center to the congress center over a 1.5km distance. MARBEN V2X software together with Autotalks V2X hardware devices allows Navya vehicles to get the signal phase broadcasted by the traffic lights spread over the trail thus securing the crossing of intersection. Communication between vehicles and intelligent infrastructure, allows vehicles to get knowledge of upcoming hazards or traffic conditions that are out of sight. V2X communication technology therefore contributes new valuable data to those collected by existing driver assistance systems such as cameras, radar or lidar.

"V2X technology provides solutions that not only contribute to a safer and greener mobility, but also pave the way for autonomous vehicles" says Michel Perin, Marben Sales & Marketing director. "V2X allows vehicles to detect potential hazards on the road in situation where the existing in-vehicles sensors such as video cameras, radars or lidars cannot. Combined with sensors, V2X will make the operation of self-driving cars safer." MARBEN V2X is a complete software solution supporting both the US and the European V2X profiles. It is hardware agnostic (CPUs, 802.11p chipsets, Hardware Security Modules) and can run on most of the available operating systems including Linux, QNX, ThreadX or Android. By embedding security and privacy management, offering user-friendly APIs and pre-defined set of road safety and traffic optimization applications, MARBEN V2X dramatically accelerates the development and the integration of V2X On-Board and Roadside units as was proved by the quick integration with Autotalks' chipset.

"Due to the unique, otherwise unavailable, information introduced by V2X technology, V2X will naturally play a key role in any fusion system for vehicle actuation." says Ram Shallom, Autotalks Director of Marketing. "With that in mind, Autotalks V2X solution was carefully designed to meet the rigorous reliability requirements for sensor-fusion systems and autonomous vehicles. Other than a high level of hardware and software qualification, Autotalks is the only to apply a wholistic uncompromised V2X security approach, understanding that V2X security, reliability and safety are tightly coupled.

Washington, DC, OSS Billing & OSS World June 9 & 10

The partnership will enable telecommunications operators, financial industry and large enterprise network users to rapidly and transparently move from X.25 to TCP/IP networks and thus be able to keep on using their existing applications.

Marben Products, an established provider of portable protocol suites for the control and management plans of New Generation Networks, announced today that it has signed a formal distribution agreement with Microtronix, a world leader in X.25 integration and migration with operations in North America, Europe and Latin America to distribute its Access 3000 and 4000 X.25-TCP/IP gateway products worldwide.

"In a context where carriers are phasing out their X.25 networks and where X.25 networks gets less and less market support, it is imperative for all x.25 users to find alternative solution", said the Marben Products Marketing and Sales Director Michel Périn. "We do believe that Microtronix Access 3000/4000 products will enable us to offer our customers a solution to transparently move from X.25 to TCP/IP networks while preserving their current investment".

Many legacy applications like CDR Collections using FTAM or CMISE/CMIP and X.400 messaging systems in various markets such as banking, defense, local and federal administrations still use X.25 networks. "By replacing the X.25 network modems and eliminating the need to lease expensive dial-up costs, Access 3000/4000 X.25-TCP/IP gateways reduce the amount of protocol overhead support, lower operating costs and increase efficiency" said Blair Bryce, Product Manager for Microtronix.

The Access 3000 Gateway offers comprehensive solutions to a migration from X.25 networking to TCP/IP networking. The product supports both X.25 to TCP conversion and X.25 over TCP encapsulation via XOT over IP (RFC 1613). By tunneling the X.25 packet layer over TCP, the gateway allows for seamless integration without modification or re-configuration of the X.25 devices. All network addressing is preserved. By transporting the packets, the gateway preserves all of the options of the X.25 protocol.

The new Access 4000 CDR Collection Manager offers a Call Detail Records (CDRs) collection platform in addition to an all-in-one X.25-TCP/IP protocol conversion gateway. It resides between the network elements and OSS management applications providing a complete end-to-end Switch (PSTN switches like Alcatel E10, Ericsson AXE10, Siemens EWSD, …) to Billing solution for service providers and large enterprise networks.

Marben Products will present Microtronix Access 3000 and 4000 X.25-TCP/IP gateways during the OSS Billing & OSS World in Washington, DC on June 9-10 at the booth number #320 (DSET).

Ten Equipment Vendors Make Control Plane Technology Top Priority in Global Interoperability Demonstration


FREMONT, Calif.- May 18, 2009 -

Ten of the world`s leading optical networking equipment vendors are making control plane technology and Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) services a top priority by dedicating three months to interoperability testing during the OIF`s Worldwide Interoperability Demonstration 2009 - Enabling Broadband On-Demand Services. The participating vendors are coming together from across the globe including Alcatel-Lucent, Ciena Corporation, Ericsson, Huawei Technologies, Marben Products, NEC Corporation of America, Nokia-Siemens Networks, Sycamore Networks, Tellabs and ZTE. The test phase of the event has been underway in the following Carrier labs since March 2009: China Telecom, Deutsche Telekom, Orange Labs -France Telecom Group, KDDI R&D Labs, NTT, Telecom Italia and Verizon.

OIF participating members are testing the interoperability of EVPL services in the control and data planes over diverse transport technologies. Carriers are testing, in varying configurations, EVPL over the following transport types:

  • Next generation TDM and wavelength transport using OTN
  • Legacy TDM transport using SONET/SDH
  • Packet transport technologies using PBB-TE and MPLS-based transport (Testing is based on ITU-T T-MPLS Recommendations that are being updated to align with the Joint IETF/ITU-T work on MPLS-TP)

The OIF`s UNI 2.0 supports Ethernet (EPL and EVPL) services, so the client can signal for EVPL service without regard to the technology layer used in the carrier network. Participants are also demonstrating multi-domain end-to-end service restoration utilizing E-NNI between vendor domains. The E-NNI is a key enabler, not only for interconnecting vendor control planes and technologies, but for value-added features such as Ethernet service delivery and end-end restoration.

"Participating vendors are testing a diverse range of technologies supporting carrier Ethernet services, using the OIF`s control plane IAs to demonstrate dynamic multi-vendor interoperability," said Lyndon Ong of Ciena and the OIF`s Technical Committee chair. "The OIF global demo tests vendors` ability to meet carrier transport needs in advanced technology, requiring vendors to install their products in carrier labs and support round the clock testing of the functionality and reliability of their optical equipment under the parameters of the OIF`s IAs."

Interoperability testing of heterogeneous network equipment includes multi-service optical network platforms, optical transport switches, ROADMs, NG SONET/SDH ADMs, digital and optical cross connects, carrier Ethernet multi-service switches, and carrier packet transport products.

The OIF`s 2009 Worldwide Interoperability Demonstration - Enabling Broadband On-Demand Services begins with intra-lab testing among each of the seven participating Carrier sites. The test sites are linked via virtual or real E-NNI connections, forming a global test network topology. The event enables testing with more vendor implementations, allowing carriers to access additional network resources beyond the boundaries of their existing networks on a global scale.

The demo will culminate in regional live showcases at iPOP (June 11, Tokyo, Japan); OIF Carrier Day (June, USA - invitation-only); and IIR WDM and Next Generation Networking (June 25, Nice, France, stand 24).

Aria Networks and Marben Products demonstrate control of Ethernet provider backbone transport using Path Computation Elements at MPLS & Ethernet World Congress

PARIS - (February 8, 2008) Aria Networks, a leading provider of network planning and path computation solutions for Next Generation Networks (NGNs) and Marben Products, an established provider of portable protocol suites for the control and management planes of NGNs , demonstrated that Ethernet Provider Backbone Transport (PBT) networks can be controlled using a combination of a GMPLS-based intelligent control plane and Path Computation Element (PCE) route computation servers at MPLS & Ethernet World Congress 2008 in Paris.

The demonstration used Aria's intelligent Virtual Network Topology (iVNT), the industry's most advanced network planning and path computation software suite. Marben Products' iVNT-enabled PCE platform utilises Marben Products' implementation of the IETF's PCE Protocol (PCEP) to provide rapid planning and activation of PBT networks and Ethernet services through their GMPLS-based control plane. Ensuring a Carrier Ethernet network can meet today's service demands, deliver exceptional quality of service, and exceed required service-levels requires the flexibility to compute complex and inter-dependent paths and to dynamically establish connections through the network. Aria and Marben-Products demonstrated real-time path computation of Ethernet service requests and showed the implementation of a variety of Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards-based PCE capabilities, including the ability to fulfill many Ethernet service requests concurrently.

"PBT is a connection-oriented, packet-switching technology that enables wide-scale deployment of Ethernet Switched Paths (ESPs) as a deterministic transport mechanism, but establishing Ethernet services on PBT networks relies on instructions from management systems to set-up the paths. So it is a natural fit that PBT is controlled by the IETF's PCE, as PCE defines a framework for path-computation to be performed by an external system," said Daniel King, Vice President at Aria Networks. "Combining iVNT's path-computation capabilities with Marben Products' PCE platform enables the Ethernet PBT network and services to be managed with an unprecedented level of sophistication and control."

iVNT is an advanced and powerful solution suite for designing, planning, and operating NGNs and includes support for Ethernet-PBT, MPLS-TE, IP, GMPLS, WDM and VPN technologies.

"The model we demonstrated with Marben Products in Paris using Ethernet PBT is one we see increasing interest in from telecoms companies around the world." said Tony Fallows, CEO of Aria Networks, "NGNs are not built using only Ethernet technologies and the model we demonstrated with Marben Products is also demonstrable for other transport technologies such as MPLS and GMPLS, leveraging our modules in the iVNT suite."
