Wind River Systems Inc. announced that Wind River platform for network equipment, Linux Edition now provides architecture support for the new dual core Intel Xeon Processor LV 2.0 GHz.

According to the company, by supporting Intel's next-generation dual-core technology, it now provides Linux customers with an out-of-the-box, dual-core ready device software platform for creating new networking applications such as wireless infrastructure, IP telephony and enterprise networking.

The Wind River platform for network equipment is a DSO solution that promises to enable companies to decrease time-to-market and improve quality for a variety of devices, from expensive chassis-based carrier-class equipment to resource-constrained, price-sensitive consumer electronics products.

Wind River added that the platform has been integrated with many of the industry's most popular telecom boards, making it suitable for the telecommunications and high-end data networking markets. It also supports the emerging PICMG 3.x Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture specification and various high-availability functions, and includes a standards-based interprocess communication mechanism that connects the Linux and VxWorks editions of the platform.

"Built upon the Linux 2.6 kernel along with Open Source Development Lab Carrier Grade Linux 3.0 specification, the performance benefits of Wind River's Linux Platform and Intel's new dual-core processor, provide our joint customers with a standards-based solution which will optimize their networking applications," said John Bruggeman, CMO of Wind River, in a statement.

"And the availability of out-of-the box, dual-core ready software, like the Wind River Linux-based device software platform, means our customers can speed development of higher performing networking solutions based on industry standards such as AdvancedTCA and Carrier-Grade Linux," said Ton Steenman, general manager of Intel's infrastructure processor division.
