USB-IF Network Control Model Specification Approved

The next generation of high-throughput wired and wireless communications is enhanced by the new USB protocol Network Control Model (NCM). The specification has just been approved by the USB Implementers Forum. NCM improves on the existing Ethernet Control Model protocol via a high performance data plane optimized for use with LTE, HSDPA+, WiMAX and other future network technologies.

"MCCI, as a primary contributor to and technical editor of the NCM specification, has already deployed a preliminary version of NCM, called Early NCM (ENCM) to prove the viability and advantages of this new protocol," explains Terry Moore, MCCI CEO. "We have cell phone customers deploying ENCM in volume production today and we will now migrate them to NCM."
