NordiaSoft Technologies Pave the Way to SCA Certification for GateHouse

NordiaSoft, a leader in solutions for the Software Communications Architecture (SCA) and Software Defined Radios (SDR), revealed today that its technologies played a pivotal role for GateHouse to achieve SCA-compliance for the BGAN SDR waveform.

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NordiaSoft, a leader in solutions for the Software Communications Architecture (SCA) and Software Defined Radios (SDR), revealed today that its technologies played a pivotal role for GateHouse to achieve SCA-compliance for the BGAN SDR waveform.

GateHouse announced earlier this year that it received SCA compliance certification from the Joint Tactical Radio System Test and Evaluation Laboratory (JTRS JTEL) for its BGAN SDR waveform. The waveform was developed in cooperation with Inmarsat. BGAN SDR allows the global government market to support the full suite of BGAN bearers, such as packet switched data, circuit switched data and Integrated Services for Digital Network (ISDN).

NordiaSoft offers the SCARI Software Suite, an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) in use worldwide for the creation of SCA-compliant platforms. The experts at NordiaSoft have been involved with the development of the SCA specification since the very beginning. Compliance started a decade ago for the NordiaSoft crew when they implemented the first and only SCA-compliant open-source reference implementation (SCA RI) Core Framework. This work was done for the Wireless Innovation Forum (then SDR Forum) and the Joint Tactical Networking Center (then JTRS Program Office). Ever since, the SCARI Software has evolved with compliance being of paramount importance.

The NordiaSoft modeling tool, SCA Architect, generates SCA-compliant source code from graphical models so developers don't need to worry about compliance. To ensure ease of validation and certification, SCA Architect also offers seamless integration with Reservoir Lab's R-Check® SCA, the static source code analysis tool used by JTEL for SCA compliance testing. R-Check SCA enables developers to validate their business logic against the SCA requirements throughout the development process.

Over the years, a number of customers using the SCARI Software Suite have been through compliance testing with great success. GateHouse is the latest example of how the NordiaSoft solution paves the way to certification. "We had a very successful experience with JTEL, the entire SCA and API implementation verification took only 4 days," said Program Manager Claus Krohn Vesterholt. "Generating SCA-compliant code from models really works!"

GateHouse and Inmarsat have created the very first SCA-compliant commercial satellite communications waveform. "This landmark event is an important step forward for the SCA community as a whole, " says Steve Bernier, CEO/CTO, NordiaSoft.
