BATM hails fruits of becoming an ARM ecosystem partner

BATM expects to receive initial sales from the new platform in 2017.
A UCPE platform is a networking solution that converts network functions from hardware to software

BATM Advanced Communications Limited (LON:BVC) has hailed the launch of the electronics industry's first ARM-based universal Customer Premises Equipment (uCPE) platform.

ARM-based chips are particularly popular in mobile devices, and the Cambridge-based chip designer worked closely with BATM's wholly-owned subsidiary, Telco Systems, and Telco partner NXP Semiconductors (NASDAQ:NXPI) on the solution.

The uCPE platform uses Telco's NFVTime plug-and-play solution that enables network function virtualisation (NFV).

As a result, the group's NFV and software-defined network (SDN) solutions, which are already integrated with Intel-based platforms, are now available on all major architectures.

“We are honoured to have launched this solution in partnership with such established organisations as NXP Semiconductors and ARM, which demonstrates the strength of our offer,” declared Dr Zvi Marom, chief executive officer of BATM.

“We believe that it will accelerate the adoption of NFV/SDN in the telecoms market. It is also another milestone in the deployment of our strategy to focus on NFV and SDN solutions and further validates that transition. We are now the only provider of NFV solutions available on all major architectures, which enables the users to be truly hardware-free, and we look forward to expanding our sales in this area, which represents a key target growth-market for BATM,"  he added.

“BATM recorded a small loss in H1, but we note the traction evident in revenue development from the investments made in core technologies across the group. Investment continues and we note that the NAV [net asset value] per share of c16p likely significantly underplays the value to come from this investment activity,” said house broker, Shore Capital.

“The balance sheet remains robust with net cash and investments forecast at cUS$19m as at December 2017,” it added.

Shares in BATM rose 1% to 17.68p on the news.
