Symphony Teleca Corporation, the services organization dedicated exclusively
to helping clients manage the global convergence of software, the cloud and
connected devices, today unveiled its Ethernet Audio Video Bridging (AVB)
solution for the automotive industry. The increasing need to support lower
cost and high performance in-vehicle networks demands the adoption of new
standards like Ethernet AVB. The company’s solution provides automotive OEMs,
Tier1s and silicon suppliers a fast and low risk track to Ethernet AVB

With increasing multimedia requirements for in-vehicle-infotainment Ethernet
AVB provides higher bandwidth and more stable network management capabilities
compared to Media Oriented System Transport (MOST) and Controller Area Network
(CAN) standards. With a time-synchronized network for audio, video and control
data on a single cable it delivers a highly reliable, low latency and low cost
in-vehicle network with guaranteed quality of service (QoS). Through simple
lightweight cabling, plug-and-play capabilities, scalable and versatile
topology support like star, bus and tree, it is the ideal standard for future
proof in-vehicle networks. For compliance to other standards Ethernet AVB also
supports gateways for heterogeneous networks like CAN, MOST or Flexray.

The Symphony Teleca Ethernet AVB solution provides an affordable, scalable,
flexible, robust and security-guaranteed in-vehicle network that helps
automotive customers tackle the cost and complexity challenges involved in
delivering next-generation in-vehicle-infotainment solutions. The company
delivers a complete solution for silicon vendors who want to provide Ethernet
AVB capable chipsets, automotive OEMs who consider Ethernet AVB based networks
or automotive Tier1 suppliers who plan to provide Ethernet AVB capable ECUs or

“We are seeing a tremendous need for new connectivity solutions as part of the
connected car evolution and Ethernet AVB is one of the most promising
standards to be deployed in next generation vehicles,” said Dean Miles, Senior
Vice President Automotive, Symphony Teleca. “Through our investment in an
Ethernet AVB solution we will help the automotive industry to faster migrate
to this new standard and benefit from its high performance and low cost

Key highlights of the Symphony Teleca solution comprise:

  *Full compliance to the Ethernet AVB stack specification for automotive,
  *Endpoint implementation for IEEE802.1AS, 802.1Qav, 802.1Qat & IEEE1722
  *Multimedia & network management middleware development and application
  *Application development for multimedia & network management
  *Adaptable for major silicon & OS vendors with flexible IP models

Symphony Teleca is an end-to-end solution provider for Ethernet AVB covering
consulting and proof-of-concept development, implementation of the stack using
productized assets, configuration and development of relevant middleware and
application components, and full network management as well as test and
validation services. The company leverages its vast experience and expertise
in development of video distribution systems, TCP/IP stack, PHY & MAC layer
drivers, middleware components and application APIs in Open Source.

At the 2013 International CES in Las Vegas Symphony Teleca is showcasing the
Ethernet AVB solution pre-integrated on the Freescale iMx6 platform at its LVH
Hospitality Suite 2855 as well as at the Genivi CES 2013 Showcase Reception at
the Trump International Hotel. Symphony Teleca is also excited to showcase the
Ethernet AVB solution pre-integrated on the “Jacinto” DRAxxx family of
infotainment processors from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI), in TI’s CES
Village (Las Vegas Hilton North Hall, N115 – N119).

“Ethernet AVB is becoming a key feature for future automotive connectivity,”
said Matthew Watson, Automotive Infotainment Processors Product Line Manager,
TI. “We are pleased to work with Symphony Teleca to offer a pre-integrated
solution on our Jacinto 5 DRA65x family of infotainment processors. Through
this collaboration, we provide a seamless option to customers looking to adopt
a proven, high-performance Ethernet AVB solution for next-generation

“We have worked with Symphony Teleca to build a flexible and highly reusable
Ethernet AVB solution pre integrated into our i.MX 6 Series product family.
This will allow our customers to scale Ethernet AVB solutions across a wide
range of automotive applications at a lower cost with better time to market
allowing them to take full advantage of this emerging technology,” said Dan
Loop, Freescale Semiconductor i.MX Automotive Product Marketing Manager.
