Telestra Data Sheet

ASTi's Telestra suite of products provides comprehensive sound and communications simulation software and equipment. The Telestra solution consists of an embedded, real-time platform, called the Target that hosts all of the model data and system configuration. This project is manipulated using a powerful suite of ACE software applications referred to as the Studio.

Software Overview

ACE Studio is a suite of software tools incorporating sound and communications model development, Project management, communications monitoring and fault analysis, and equipment status and configuration. ACE Studio software provides remote access to all networked simulation models and equipment from a single development workstation.

The Studio is available on an ASTi Telestra platform with a removable hard drive or as a software-only application that runs on a virtual machine on a customer-furnished computer.

For more information, see the ACE Studio Technical User Guide.
