Wind River to Certify Its Networking and Communications Software with HP Servers

By Mandira Srivastava, TMCnet Contributor


Wind River (News - Alert), a provider of intelligent connected system software, has announced that it is working with HP to certify its networking and communications software on Network Equipment Building System (NEBS)-compliant HP ProLiant servers. Upon competition of this certification testing, Wind River networking and communications products will join the HP certification matrix, and the company will become an HP preferred software vendor for the communications market.

Wind River Linux is designed to provide an intuitive user experience with a rich set of capabilities based on current open source technologies, fully integrated development tools, global support and maintenance, and expert professional services.

Meanwhile, Wind River Open Virtualization optimizes open source Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) technology, enabling the deployment of network services on virtual machines without any performance losses. Open Virtualization aims to deliver near-native hardware performance speeds, whereas standard KVM maximum latency is typically several thousand percent higher than native results.

Finally, using Wind River Linux as a base, Carrier Grade Profile for Wind River Linux gives customers a platform designed to meet their Carrier Grade Linux requirements. Registered for the CGL 5.0 specification with the Linux Foundation (News - Alert), Carrier Grade Profile is the first delivery of carrier grade Linux functionalities on top of a Yocto Project Compatible product. The product enables the next generation of embedded Linux designs requiring secure, standards-based, and reliable solutions.

Together with HP’s carrier-grade NEBS-compliant servers, designed for telecom service providers and network equipment suppliers, Wind River aims to accelerate network transformation by enabling customers to quickly address network functions virtualization (NFV) applications and reduce total cost of ownership through the adoption of commercial off-the shelf (COTS) hardware.

“The carrier network is undergoing a transformation arising from the potential that comes with NFV. By taking advantage of a virtualized or cloud environment through NFV, the telecom industry could reap the flexibility, scalability, cost and energy benefits that IT data centers already enjoy,” said Glenn Seiler, vice president of networking solutions at Wind River, in a statement. “By combining Wind River’s decades of telecom experience with servers from the market leader like HP, we’re enabling a new generation of carrier grade, NFV-ready servers for the changing telecommunications market.”
