EL DORADO HILLS, Calif., Nov. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) today announced that Nokia Siemens Networks, a global leader in telecommunications, is the consortium's newest member of its Networking Subcommittee. As a member of the Networking Subcommittee, Nokia Siemens Networks will have full access to utilize all the benchmark tools provided within that subcommittee, and will help drive the consortium's future direction, in the area of radio and networking equipment, and appliances.
EEMBC was formed in 1997 to develop meaningful performance benchmarks for the hardware and software used in embedded systems. EEMBC benchmarks help predict the performance of embedded processors and systems in a range of applications (i.e. networking, digital entertainment, automotive, office automation, telecommunications, and connected devices) and disciplines (processor core functionality, floating-point, Java, multicore, and energy consumption). The consortium is also working on a new benchmark suite, named DPIBench, which will provide a standardized, industry-accepted method of evaluating the performance of Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliances.
"As a leader in the telecommunications networks market, Nokia Siemens Networks makes a notable addition to our membership," said Markus Levy, EEMBC president. "Nokia Siemens Networks' experience in this industry will help ensure that DPIBench is a fair and equitable benchmark. This will be important because the industry has lacked a common method of performance testing and validation of UTM throughput."
"As a Networking Subcommittee Member, Nokia Siemens Networks will utilize EEMBC benchmark standards to help us select the most effective processing solutions for our mobile broadband and connectivity equipment," said Jarmo Hillo, Manager, Computing Technologies, CTO Research, Nokia Siemens Networks. "Furthermore, we look forward to contributing our expertise to help EEMBC develop the best real-world benchmarks for the networking industry."
EEMBC, the Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium, develops and certifies real-world benchmarks and benchmark scores to help designers select the right embedded processors for their systems. Every processor submitted for EEMBC benchmarking is tested for parameters representing different workloads and capabilities in communications, networking, consumer, office automation, automotive/industrial, embedded Java, and network storage-related applications. With members including leading semiconductor, intellectual property, and compiler companies, EEMBC establishes benchmark standards and provides certified benchmarking results through the EEMBC Technology Center.
EEMBC members include ACE Associated Compiler Experts, AMD, Analog Devices, Andes Technology, Applied Micro, ARM, Broadcom, Cavium Networks, Cypress Semiconductor, Freescale Semiconductor, Fujitsu Semiconductor, Green Hills Software, IAR Systems AB, IBM, Imagination Technologies, Infineon Technologies, Intel, Lockheed Martin, LSI, Marvell Semiconductor, MediaTek, Mentor Graphics, Microchip Technology, MIPS Technologies, NetLogic Microsystems, Nokia, Nokia Siemens Networks, NVIDIA, NXP Semiconductors, Plurality, Qualcomm, Realtek Semiconductor, Red Hat, Renesas Electronics, Research In Motion, Samsung Electronics, Sony Computer Entertainment, STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, TOPS Systems, VIA Technologies, Wind River Systems, Xerox, and Xilinx.
