Wind River Systems Inc. is extending the Transparent Inter Process Communication (TIPC) open source protocol to support the VxWorks operating system. TIPC is a protocol designed to optimize development of multiple processor systems, such as carrier grade clusters and network equipment devices, and has to-date been available only for Linux.

By offering TIPC support for its Linux-based and now VxWorks-based platforms, Wind River is driving standardization and choice for all device software developers regardless of operating system.

"As the market leading provider of commercial Real Time Operating Systems, Wind River has an obligation to the device software optimization market to embrace and extend the use of open source software," said John Fanelli, VP of product planning and management for Wind River.

Fanelli added, "Today's market demands compatibility between devices running different operating systems. Wind River's commitment to open standard protocols like TIPC further enables and accelerates our customers' ability to benefit from open standards, helping them make quality devices better, faster, at a lower cost and more reliably. Customers value choice and options and vendors that do not provide them will not be successful in the market."
