"The development of this new solution represents another significant step forward in our network function virtualisation strategy and another milestone delivered under our agreement with Arm," said Dr Zvi Marom, the CEO of BATM.

The new technology will enable more efficient and cost-effective customer premise networking

Computer networking specialist BATM Advanced Communications Limited (LON:BVC) has developed a new technology under its long-standing partnership with NXP Semiconductors.

The new technology will enable a significant increase in computer network traffic, without requiring an increase in computing power, when licensing the group's NFVTime on certain NXP processors built on the core technology of Arm, the British chip designer that was bought by Softbank in 2016 for US$32bn.

WATCH: BATM develops technology to significant increase computer network traffic

BATM said the technology enhancement represents the delivery of a key milestone under the group's strategic agreement with Arm.

Performance tests of the new solution compared with standard software-based virtual open switching have demonstrated a three to five-times increase in virtual network traffic. Another key achievement was the latency (i.e. response time) rate, which was roughly halved despite the increase in data being sent.

In addition, by freeing processor resources, more virtual network functions (VNFs) can be run or alternatively higher VNF performance can be achieved. As a result, customers can benefit from the significantly increased performance without being required to increase computing power, thus saving them money.

“We are confident that this solution will be well-received by the market. As we continue to advance our technology, users of our solutions will be able to gain even more from their networks and optimise performance,” said Dr Zvi Marom, the chief executive officer of BATM.

In morning trading, shares in BATM were 2.1% higher at 46.80p.
