Enea (News - Alert), a provider of software and services for 3G and 4G infrastructure equipment, announced the addition of Enea Linux, a Yocto-based Linux distribution, to its operating system solutions.
Enea also launched of a range of technologies designed to enhance the performance and applicability of Linux in networking infrastructure.
Enea Linux contains 120+ packages specifically selected for telecom needs. Yocto ensures quick access to the latest Board Support Packages (BSPs) for the most common HW architectures.
Benefits of Enea Linux project include dedicated Linux core development team, proven technical alignment process, open source community participation, legal insurance and responsibility and dedicated Enear Linux support teams.
“With Enea Linux and our innovative value-added technologies, we have a powerful solution for addressing the Linux and real-time operating system challenges that customers building the next generation networking infrastructure are faced with,” said Anders Lidbeck, president and CEO of Enea.
“Working closely with leading telecom manufacturers we have tailored a Linux distribution that meets the industry’s key requirements on flexibility, reliability and performance,” he added.
Some of the technologies added in Enea include Enea Light-Weight Runtime Threads (LWRT), Enea Packet Acceleration foundation (PAX) and specialized systems virtualization solutions.
With Enea Light-Weight Runtime Threads (LWRT) technology, applications run with improved determinism and minimal overhead. It will also improve real-time characteristics in Linux user space, offering scheduling, message passing and resource management functionality. With these features, LWRT addresses some of the main concerns associated with traditional Linux solutions.
The Enea Packet Acceleration foundation (PAX) is a modular, graph structured framework designed for high performance HW-accelerated packet processing. The solution is ideal for IP transport-related solutions such as vertically integrated SCTP or GTP termination for RAN nodes.
Through the micro kernel based Enea Hypervisor and KVM for additional organization, the specialized systems virtualization solutions deliver high-performance, deterministic embedded code.
Enea recently announced it delivers software support for Texas Instruments’ (News - Alert) new TMS320C665x multicore digital signal processors (DSPs), extending its comprehensive TMS320C66x generation of DSP platform support.
