Harris Stratex Picks PT

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Performance Technologies (NASDAQ: PTIX), a leading provider of innovative network communications solutions, today announced that Harris Stratex Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSTX), has selected the company’s IPnexus® MicroTCA® System as its design platform to develop new WiMAX and LTE products. Harris Stratex is a global supplier of advanced wireless solutions that enable the evolution of next-generation fixed and mobile broadband networks.

This design win marks a turning point in an industry where development platforms are regularly assembled using hardware, software, and middleware from multiple vendors, requiring extensive compatibility testing and configuration that consumes premium time and scarce resources. The pre-integrated, Application-Ready System from Performance Technologies is unique in its offering, whereby all elements of operating system and middleware, processor technology, and platform are designed, manufactured, and pre-integrated from a single source.

"Our main objective was to reduce the time and expense of bringing our wireless service gateway to market," said Paul Kennard, Senior Vice President and Chief Technical Officer of Harris Stratex. "The IPnexus platform is the most cost-effective solution because we don’t have to be a systems integrator; instead we are able to devote considerably more energy to creating quality applications for our customers. Their high-end technology is extremely flexible and scalable, and better positions the final product to meet our worldwide customer demand for high performance, cost-effective wireless gateways."
