Signal Routing Made Simple

Our signal routing software, Switch Path Manager (SPM), simplifies signal routing through switching systems and speeds up the development of switching system software. Switch Path Manager supports Pickering's switching modules and the interconnection between these products. Third-party products can be supported upon request.

Once a switching system model has been created, simply defining the endpoints that are required to be connected together can perform signal routing. The ability to automate signal routing results in effective and easy switching system management—safely and quickly.

A feature like short circuit detection avoids unwanted shorts between routes.

The SPM site license allows the user to install the software package across multiple computers simultaneously at a single customer site. It can also be used temporarily on switching systems that are developed off-site but destined for end-use at the customer site.
