ATCA Adoption Remains Strong Despite New Challenges

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux is changing the software makeup of network infrastructures through new 
| devices at the control layer and network layer 


More good news:

Embedded Linux vendor attains support certification

,----[ Quote ]
| The company claims to be the only embedded Linux provider certified under the 
| Service Strategies "Support Center Practices" (SCP) program. 



8-Port Device Server incorporates Linux for Device Networking 

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux incorporated PS810 supports competitive edge features such as 
| flexible operation mode, TCP/UDP multicasting, telnet COM port control 
| protocol support (RFC2217 compliant), SSL encryption, and port event 
| handling. The unit is based on the embedded Linux and a 32-bit microprocessor 
| platform.    


Will Enterprise Open Source Scale the Walled Gardens of the Cellular Network

,----[ Quote ]
| Lately, I've been researching the feasibility of running Linux on any of the 
| several excellent smartphone platforms out there. There's the long running 
| Treos 650/680/700 that have a lot of units in service and surprisingly 
| consistent internal technology with which to focus an open OS development 
| team on. Developer interest in the platform seems to be growing (link to 
| shadowmite and hack'n dev).     
| [...]
| All of this is a leap in level of service and an order of magnitude drop in 
| cost. Are the cellular providers going to like it? No. Can they stop it? Yes. 
| They can lock their phones from being taken over by the open source 
| community. Will they succeed? I don't know but the question is "what doesn't 
| run Linux these days?"    


Linux gains real-time networking stack

,----[ Quote ]
| An Austrian vendor of real-time networking stacks for automotive, 
| off-highway, and aeronautics use has pledged to port its flagship 
| technology to Wind River Linux.


Linux networking stack scales to 64 virtual MIPS64 cores

,----[ Quote ]
| 6WindGate says its commercial Linux networking stack supports
| a Continuous Computing (CCPU) ATCA board powered by 16
| MIPS64-compatible cores.


Development Kit Simplifies Design of Linux Based Device Networking Products

,----[ Quote ]
| Oxford Semiconductor has introduced a software development kit for
| its OXETHU954 network connectivity controller chip aiming to
| dramatically simplify the design of Linux based device
| networking products.


Linux powers gigabit-Ethernet fiber modem design

,----[ Quote ]
| PMC-Sierra is shipping a Linux-based hardware/software reference design
| for a high-speed optical network terminator (ONT), the "modem" in
| fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks based on passive optical networking
| (PON). 


Open Source Communications Appliances Becoming the 'Rage' These Days 

,----[ Quote ]
| The open-source PBX space is generating more and more interest
| among resellers and corporations alike. It seems the move from 
| software to appliances is a good one and I expect the uptake
| of open-source communications products to be greater than ever.


Network and IT management platforms (and the GPL software beats HP and IBM)

,----[ Quote ]
| The open source OpenNMS takes home the gold award in our network
| and IT management platforms category. The network management system
| was designed as a replacement for more expensive commercial products.
| It periodically checks that services are available, isolates problems,
| collects performance information, and helps resolve outages. And it's
| free. 


Linux powers next-gen multicore home networking design

,----[ Quote ]
| The resulting Linux-based hardware/software design will
| enable home networking equipment capable of 400Mbps
| throughputs -- enough for triple-play (voice/video/
| data) services, on-demand video, and multi-channel HDTV
| service delivery, ARM says.
