Legacy Interface Test Equipment
L.I.T.E. Software Suite
Sunhillo’s Legacy Interface Test Equipment (LITE) is a software package that provides multiple system simulation capabilities using various FAA protocols. As part of the TDM to IP initiative, there has been a move to transition serial communication circuits to IP circuits. Sunhillo’s LITE has been specifically designed to provide a platform for testing FAA Legacy serial interfaces and providing an environment to help in the transition from TDM to IP.
LITE is a fully configurable simulation tool. The LITE application runs on a Linux host. The application utilizes the IP interface(s) of that host and provides access to the serial interfaces through the Sunhillo family of communication devices, using the Sunhillo Multi-Protocol Server (MPS)- API LAN based interface, and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Common Message Handling Protocol (CMHP) to external systems.
LITE tests the RICI 5000 Gateway or Ventnor Concentrator protocol interfaces either locally or remotely across a network.
