inTEST Launches THERMOSTREAM(R) ATS Series

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) MOUNT LAUREL, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 12/04/12 -- inTEST Corporation (NASDAQ: INTT), an independent designer, manufacturer and marketer of temperature management products and semiconductor automatic test equipment (ATE) interface solutions, today announced that its Thermal Solutions Group has launched the industry's most comprehensive line of Precision Temperature Forcing Systems, the THERMOSTREAM® ATS Series. With temperature range extremes as high as +300 degrees C (+570 degrees F) and as low as -100 degrees C (-148 degrees F), countless test and conditioning applications can now be solved with a compact, precise and portable system.

ATS product line's increased thermal capacity translates to a broader range of applications, addressing an expanded market. Increased number of models offered in ATS product line will enhance the THERMOSTREAM margin profile.

inTEST Thermal Solutions specializes in meeting the most demanding temperature applications by engineering unique thermal test solutions. In launching the innovative new product line, James Pelrin, President of inTEST Thermal Solutions, said, "The ATS Series is the culmination of decades of experience both Temptronic and Thermonics gained through providing unique solutions to customers' temperature test needs. The new ATS product series has eight different models, up from the previous five, with each one addressing a different temperature application. For many years, customers have turned to us to provide extremely accurate and precise temperature test capability that has typically been used in the semiconductor and small electronic test market. With the ATS Series, we offer the industry's largest breadth of thermal solutions available and are now able to address the technical challenges of a much broader market." The ATS Series was created by taking the industry's workhorse THERMOSTREAM systems and significantly enhancing them in terms of both features and capabilities. "We now have one cohesive package that includes a number of improvements, some of which came from our Thermonics acquisition, along with a much broader set of capabilities." Pelrin continued, "The speed, precision, and portability of our new systems, combined with a broader temperature range and capacity, have resulted in the most comprehensive line of Precision Temperature Forcing Systems ever. Our THERMOSTREAM system has been the semiconductor test industry standard since 1974, noted for its flexibility and overall performance. However, technical demands of other markets differ markedly, and customers across a number of industries asked us to provide the additional horsepower they needed. The ATS Series does just that." Companies throughout the Military/Aerospace, Telecom, Medical, Automotive, Industrial and Energy markets are all looking to improve the quality and reliability of their products. "Cost of product failure for these companies is prohibitive and engineers are always looking for alternative means to enhance their test capability. One engineer may need to test at different temperature extremes to stress their product, while another may want to accelerate their transition rates to improve throughput or to run accelerated life tests. Regardless of their thermal testing needs, the ATS Series can help them achieve their goals," concluded Pelrin.

Robert E. Matthiessen, inTEST Corporation's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented on the Company's ongoing diversification strategy of its Thermal Products segment into non-semiconductor growth markets. "Our long-term objective is to grow and evolve inTEST Corporation into a broad-based industrial test company as we continue to execute on our differentiated product strategy. Over the past year we have strategically repositioned our sales force by integrating our sales channel and consolidating products in our Thermal division, and we are optimally positioned to identify next-generation solutions and growth market opportunities, particularly in our Sigma product line. We are committed to leveraging our capabilities and achieving a balance between serving our customers in our traditional semiconductor market and further developing new markets addressed by inTEST Thermal Solutions. The ATS Series considerably adds to our capabilities."

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
