Network Equipment Providers and Telecommunications carriers are under pressure to deliver higher performance at lower cost. They need to increase operating efficiencies while lowering power consumption, in effect becoming more 'green'. At the same time, they must achieve near 100% uptime as they re-architect their solutions away from proprietary hardware and software to new multi-core architectures to achieve the necessary performance and cost savings.
MontaVista Linux Carrier Grade Edition is a high performance, high availability, commercial-grade Linux development platform for next generation multi-core network architectures. CGE delivers bare metal performance while removing the need for proprietary solutions, lowering complexity and providing the time-to-market benefits and the customizability and control of an open-source Linux development platform. Because CGE supports Linux carrier grade standards, developers can add functionality by including off-the-shelf Linux utilities without worrying about function loss due to incompatibility. Carrier Grade Edition includes a complete development environment that enables engineers to rapidly design new equipment and applications, and is fully supported by MontaVista.
MontaVista Linux Carrier Grade Edition adds additional value over open source or proprietary solutions by including features only available from MontaVista. These include:
MontaVista Linux Carrier Grade Edition provides multiple options for maximizing the resource utilization of multi-core processors. With both AMP and SMP support, along with new partitioning and virtualization technologies, CGE provides the most flexibility and the highest performance for multi-core applications.
