Jungo debuts OpenRG for Linux residential gateway apps

Jungo Software Technologies Inc. has released an open Linux development platform for residential gateway applications, optimized for Intel's iXDPG425 network gateway reference platform.

OpenRG for the XScale 425 is intended for residential and small-office access points, routers, voice-over-IP gateways and storage routers.

CEO Ofer Vilenski said the company has worked with Intel on many projects, including code for versions of Linux used by Intel and Monta Vista. Jungo also released an OpenRG reference platform for the Intel iXP225 network processor, but Vilenski said Jungo believes "the XScale architecture has a better chance of becoming a significant architecture in gateways and small-business routers."

Aladdin Knowledge Systems Ltd, a digital rights management and security specialist, has become a Jungo OpenRG partner, debuting an integrated e-mail filtering system as part of the OpenRG development platform. Aladdin eSafe is a gateway-level content-inspection engine that provides virus detection with no software installation, and a minimal software footprint on client PCs.

Yaal Eshel, director of marketing at Jungo, said one advantage of the Aladdin eSafe system is that content-inspection programs can be implemented by either OEMs themselves through gateway capabilities, or by service providers that lease gateways to end users. Jungo has the rights to "white-label" the Aladdin service as something that either OEMs or service providers can brand as their own.

Jungo is talking to Aladdin about a variety of other application licensing deals in software- and hardware-based security.

Since its founding in 1998, Jungo has developed OpenRG software for processors from Texas Instruments Inc., Conexant Systems Inc., Samsung Semiconductor and Integrated Device Technology Inc., as well as Intel. While the kernel is Linux-based, Jungo also offers interfaces to Wind River Systems' VxWorks environment.
