MontaVista Software Announces MontaVistaTM Linux Carrier Grade Edition 2.1

MontaVista Software has announced MontaVistaTM Linux Carrier Grade Edition 2.1, a standards-based, open architecture software platform for the next-generation telecommunications systems. The product enhances standard Linux with additional high reliability and availability features for deployment in carrier-grade environments, and is designed specifically to address the needs of telecommunications equipment manufacturers. MontaVista Linux Carrier Grade Edition builds on the company's expertise in embedded Linux and high availability, incorporating all the benefits of the MontaVista flagship product, MontaVista Linux Professional Edition, which includes a fully preemptive kernel and real-time scheduling, small footprint targets and journaling file systems. It also builds on key technologies from the MontaVista High Availability Framework, such as PICMG 2.12 hot swap capabilities (hot replace and hot insert), redundant Ethernet, and resource monitoring and event management subsystem. The product is available for Intel architecture platforms in the second quarter of 2002 and will be compatible with other architecture platforms in the future.
