September 12, 2012 - Optimizing underwater network protocol development, EvoLogics underwater acoustic modem emulator covers all features of S2CR-series underwater acoustic modem's data-link protocol layer and includes simulator of physical protocol layer. Network of virtual underwater acoustic modems can be accessed remotely for hardware-free development/training framework. Any code written and run on modem emulator can be run on actual modem hardware without modification.

EvoLogics underwater acoustic modem emulator: the new solution for protocol developers underwent successful beta-testing

EvoLogics GmbH, a leading manufacturer of underwater information and communication systems from Berlin, Germany, is proud to announce the EvoLogics underwater acoustic modem emulator that recently underwent successful beta-testing and will soon be available to the customers.

After releasing the WiSE (White Line Science Edition) line of underwater acoustic modems with an embedded network protocol development platform, Evologics GmbH continues to promote underwater networking technologies with a new tool that offers more flexibility for underwater network protocol developers and end-users of EvoLogics underwater acoustic modems.

EvoLogics' new solution is a real-time emulator of the S2CR-series underwater acoustic modems.

This tool is aimed at optimizing underwater network protocol development by taking out expensive modem hardware from the early testing stages - it emulates all features of the modem's data-link protocol layer and includes a simulator of the physical protocol layer.

A network of virtual underwater acoustic modems, configured and run on EvoLogics server, can be accessed remotely and therefore provides a hardware-free framework for development and training. Any code, written and run on the modem emulator, can be later run on the actual modem hardware without any modifications, offering a time-saving solution that minimizes development costs for upper layer network protocols and simplifies integration of acoustic modems into underwater infrastructure.

The EvoLogics underwater acoustics modems emulator underwent beta-testing in 2011-2012. The company's academic partners remotely accessed the emulator to develop and debug upper layer protocols for underwater acoustic networks. Furthermore, some commercial customers were granted emulator access to simplify system integration of EvoLogics modems: the customers used the emulated virtual modems to get accustomed with modem control sequences before the actual hardware delivery.

EvoLogics received great feedback from emulator users, who found it very convenient for debugging network protocols in development, as well as to plan and refine experiments before conducting them on real modem hardware. Valuable suggestions from the beta-test collaborators will help improve the emulator before its final release planned for fall 2012.

The EvoLogics team will report on the underwater acoustic modem emulator during the UComms Conference on Underwater Communications in Levante, Italy (12-14 September 2012) and the 9th IFAC Conference on Manoeuvring and Control of Marine Craft in Arenzano, Italy (19-21 September 2012).

EvoLogics GmbH (Berlin, Germany) is a high-tech enterprise, specializing in underwater acoustic communications, acoustic positioning equipment and innovative solutions for robotics.
