Wind River Adds CGL 4.0 Compliance for MIPS Architectures

Wind River today announced that Wind River Linux 3.0 for MIPS® architectures complies with the Carrier Grade Linux (CGL) 4.0 specification from the Linux Foundation, a critical requirement for the telecommunications and high-end data networking markets. This includes MIPS-based multicore processors from Cavium Networks and RMI Corporation, and also extends existing CGL 4.0 support for PowerPC and x86 architecture-based processors from Freescale and Intel.

“Wind River already has demonstrated its strong commitment to providing embedded Linux on MIPS-based architectures,” said Art Swift, vice president of marketing, MIPS Technologies. “Supporting the carrier-grade specification on Wind River Linux is another important milestone. This opens up new possibilities for our many customers in the networking and communications markets to create first-class solutions for mission-critical workloads, while achieving the ever-increasing need for high performance.”

By registering the Wind River Linux 3.0 distribution as CGL 4.0 compliant for MIPS architectures, Wind River provides customers carrier-grade functionality for a comprehensive portfolio of chip architectures. Carrier Grade Linux has become a key requirement for companies not only in the network equipment market, increasingly for 3G and 4G network infrastructures, but also in other markets where stringent availability, scalability, and service response characteristics are mission-critical requirements. Wind River Linux 3.0 with CGL 4.0 compliance for MIPS architectures provides a set of pre-configured system profiles for a variety of vertical markets including aerospace and defense, industrial, medical and networking.

“As a preferred partner in supporting network transformation for operators worldwide, developing All-IP based carrier-grade network elements is essential to achieving five-nines reliability for mission critical applications,” said Bruno Zhang, director of Central Base Platform, Huawei. “Utilizing proven and tested software that readily meets carrier-grade specification as defined by the industry, while being supported across a broad portfolio of processors, offers network equipment providers incredible advantages of choice, flexibility, and efficiency.”

“Networking products using the MIPS architecture are delivering significant packet processing advantages in critical areas within the network,” said YJ Kim, senior director, Networking and Communications Division, Cavium Networks. “An extensive set of joint customers utilize Wind River’s software solutions along with our MIPS-based OCTEON multicore processors with unmatched scalability and performance in a number of applications. Adding the carrier-grade functionality for MIPS will help our joint customers develop highly reliable products contributing to the always-on requirement of today’s network.”

“Global telecom equipment providers are rapidly adopting MIPS-based solutions for high-performance, application-specific products throughout the network,” said Mark Litvack, director of business development, RMI Corporation. “RMI’s XLR and XLS multi-core and multi-threaded processors have been integrated into solutions with both VxWorks and Wind River Linux, and together offer the ultimate in features and flexibility and provide unsurpassed performance per unit of power in carrier-grade, enterprise and other products. The use of RMI’s XLR and XLS processors in combination with Wind River’s software, provides a unique solution that exceeds the demands of next-generation wireless network.”

Wind River introduced Wind River Linux 3.0 in March 2009, including compliance with the CGL 4.0 for PowerPC and x86 architecture-based processors from Freescale and Intel. In July 2009, VDC Research Group named Wind River the embedded Linux market leader. Wind River achieved the market share lead in 2008 with greater than 30 percent of total market revenue, according to VDC’s 2009 Linux in the Embedded Systems Market report. Wind River entered the Linux business in 2004 to complement its market-leading, proprietary operating system, VxWorks.

Wind River Linux 3.0 distribution registered as CGL 4.0 compliant for MIPS architectures is now available to customers worldwide. Additional details about Wind River Linux 3.0 and Carrier Grade Linux 4.0 are available at www.windriver.com/announces/cgl4/.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
