Alameda, Calif.—November 1, 2004—Wind River Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: WIND), the global leader in device software optimization (DSO), today announced the Wind River Platform for Network Equipment, Linux Edition. Platform for Network Equipment, Linux Edition is Wind River’s first Platform that includes a complete Linux reference file system with a rich set of networking middleware and applications.

Based on the Linux 2.6 kernel with Carrier Grade Linux (CGL) 2.01 features, Platform for Network Equipment, Linux Edition also includes Wind River Workbench 2.2. With Platform for Network Equipment, Linux Edition and Platform for Network Equipment, VxWorks Edition. Telecommunication manufacturers can develop and run the complete range of network equipment applications from core and enterprise to access and edge devices.

The Platform for Network Equipment, Linux Edition is particularly well suited for developing the control and management system software for the folllowing applications:

  • wireless infrastructure systems
  • soft switches
  • media gateways
  • DSLAMSs
  • cable headends
  • multi-service switches
  • optical switches
  • core routers

Additionally, Wind River's Platform for Network Equipment, Linux Edition, supports the Open Source Development Lab’s (OSDL) CGL 2.01 specifications and emerging standards. This includes the Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA), the latest standards-based modular communications specification for telecommunications platforms. Wind River has ported to the Intel® NetStructure™ MPCBL001 Single Board Computer, allowing telecommunication equipment manufacturers and system integrators to realize quicker time to market with highly scalable standards-based building blocks.

"The OSDL Carrier Grade Linux specification helps manufacturers develop Linux-based solutions with the high availability, redundancy, scalability and security required for today's carrier grade networking equipment," said Tim Witham, chief technology officer of the Open Source Development Labs (OSDL). "By being consistent with the CGL specification and addressing the cross-project, multiple OS development needs of today's networking manufacturers, Wind River is delivering on the promise of Linux and enabling manufacturers to optimize their Linux strategy."

"AdvancedTCA with Intel Architecture processors is the platform of choice for telecom equipment manufacturers looking to quickly deliver new services for next generation networks." said Anthony Ambrose, general manager, Modular Platform Programs in the Intel Communications Infrastructure Group. “The Wind River Platform for Networking Equipment, Linux Edition ported to the Intel AdvancedTCA single board computers enables more rapid deployment of new applications for telecom equipment manufacturers and systems integrators.”

Wind River Platform for Networking Equipment, Linux Edition:

  • Supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 WS
  • Includes v2.6 Linux Kernel
  • Support for OSDL Carrier Grade 2.0.1 File System
  • ATCA board support
  • Cross Development Infrastructure
  • Scalable Linux Reference File System
  • Workbench Integrated Development Environment
  • Supports TIPC, an inter-process communication standard that connects Wind River Platform for Network Equipment with Wind River’s General Purpose Platform, VxWorks Edition
  • Supported by many third-party vendors
    Optimizes resources by capitalizing on Wind River Professional Services’ extensive device software capabilities

“Wind River Platform for Network Equipment, Linux Edition, helps companies realize the potential of Linux for networking devices,” said John Bruggeman, chief marketing officer for Wind River. “Customers are able to implement and deploy carrier grade telecommunications equipment based on Linux and a dual operating system strategy more easily, meet high-end product requirements and gain efficiencies by leveraging software across multiple projects and operating systems.”

Wind River Platform for Network Equipment, Linux Edition will be available in Q1 CY05.
