6/30/2003 - Jaluna SA announced the availability of three Linux based products that compose the Jaluna-2 product family: Jaluna-2/EL, Jaluna-2/RT (previewed in February) and Jaluna-2/VL. These solutions address the needs of a wide range of network infrastructure equipment and leverage the momentum of Linux in the embedded systems industry.
"The use of Linux as an embedded operating system continues to gain momentum and serious consideration from embedded developers for their development projects," said Stephen Balacco, Senior Analyst at Venture Development Corporation. "The Jaluna-2 product family places Jaluna in a good position to capitalize on this opportunity because of its unique way to address the key requirements of today’s embedded systems industry."
"This announcement illustrates Jaluna’s commitment to address the business needs of the telecom and networking industry," said Michel Gien, president and CEO, Jaluna SA. "Jaluna-2 product family members complement each other to fulfill the requirements of a wide spectrum of network equipment and delivers on Jaluna’s promise to bring innovative extensions to Linux."
The Jaluna-2 product family is composed of:
Jaluna-2/RT, combining the C5TM micro-kernel and Linux;
Jaluna-2/RT dramatically extends the appeal of Linux for designs at the edge and in the core of the network infrastructure – providing applications with greater reactivity, predictability and security. In this case Linux is run side-by-side with a highly responsive, protected environment that handles critical tasks that are beyond the scope of a general-purpose embedded Linux operating system.
"Modern enterprise network equipment manufactured by our group at Nortel Networks requires combining critical real-time tasks with general purpose applications," said David Plainfossé, software project manager, Nortel Networks, "Jaluna-2/RT looks like an attractive way to address such needs."
"Being able to run efficiently several Linux instances on the same hardware brings exciting scalability and availability opportunities for new generations networking equipment," said Timo Jokiaho, director of technology, Nokia Networks. "The innovative system software platforms based on COTS components delivered by Jaluna open up new perspectives to deliver competitive solutions to our customers."
Each of the Jaluna-2 family products is supplied on a subscription basis with no-royalty fee for deployed systems. It includes world-class technical support from recognized system experts. Comprehensive documentation accompanies the ready-to-use, integrated cross-development environment.
The Jaluna-2 product family is available on PowerPC (including PowerQUICCTM) and IA-32 processor families.
Easy and simple transition paths are guaranteed between product family members.
The product package is based on the standard Linux tree and includes additional tools, BSP elements and a broad range of system utilities specifically designed for use in a cross-development environment including:
With its complete and up-to-date GNU-based cross-development tool chain, Jaluna-2/EL is attractive to developers of Linux applications for communication equipment and others embedded designs such as set-top boxes, telematics equipment, or routers.
Combines the C5TM microkernel and several Jaluna-2/EL instances all running on the same hardware, thus providing truly independent Linux environments.
This product can be used in a variety of configurations, such as:
Jaluna-2’s combination of Linux and C5 can be deployed transparently on single board, multiple-board or in racks of computers. It provides total deployment flexibility and support for a very wide set of target platforms.
