Custom Telecom Solution Development


VoIP integration, and more

Our portfolio includes specialized distribution files for VoIP devices, embedded solutions for thin clients and mini-servers. We also developed a full software package for one of the first commercial plug computers in the world. 

Promwad software engineers have developed system and user software for managed switches with Energy Efficient Ethernet and PoE support, home and industrial routers, hubs, and other network devices. 

q-in-q microchip

Selective Q-in-Q

SDK: Microchip IStaX-APPL-2020.09.

Tested on a PCB135 debug board from Microchip on VSC7558. Q-in-Q operates on the Sparx-5 microprocessor family.

Description: Selective Q-in-Q determines the pairing of a given client VLAN (on the UNI side) and the sought S-VLAN identifier. The S-VLAN identifier is joined to the input unmodified C-VLAN, and the packet is forwarded across the ISP's double-tagged network. The S-VLAN ID is removed from the output, and the client VLAN ID is retained in the packet. Packets that do not match the specified client VLANs are discarded by default.
