Enea Showcases Operating System Solutions at 3GSM World Congress

2/12/2004 - Enea Embedded Technology, the leading provider of embedded software solutions, services and training for the communications market, is presenting its latest software technologies for mobile communications devices and telecommunication infrastructure at this year’s 3GSM World Congress (Hall 2, Stand G48). Among other exhibits, the company is introducing its cellular phone operating system OSE for Wireless Devices for the OMAP platform from Texas Instruments, as well as a Java PoweredTM technology for OSE and a Mobile IP solution. Java technology brings more compatibility to mobile software. The Mobile IP Protocol enables wireless devices to maintain seamless connections across networks as a prerequisite for numerous new mobile services. These software solutions bring new, high-value features to mobile terminals, and thus form the foundation for new business models using 3G technology.

OSE for Wireless Devices is an operating system solution with special capabilities for 2.5G and 3G handsets. These features include: secure dynamic loading of programs into the system during runtime, memory protection for downloaded applications, advanced FLASH support, a crash-safe file system, virtual memory, multi-core support, power management capabilities, networking, Bluetooth, Java, graphics, and user applications, such as Web browsers and email clients.

OSE for OMAP platform
At the 3GSM World Congress, Enea will present the OSE real-time operating system on an OMAP Innovator development board from Texas Instruments. TI’s OMAP platform is a family of scalable integrated application and communications processors and stand-alone application processors. OSE and OMAP devices provide an excellent platform for deploying next generation products that require audio, video, display and communications devices. OSE supports both the OMAP5910 and OMAP1510 processors. OMAP5910 is optimized for embedded and connected applications, such as Internet appliances, web pads, telematics, biometrics, and medical devices. OMAP1510 targets multimedia-rich, converged voice and data smart phones, PDAs and other types of mobile devices.

Mobile IP for OSE
At the mobile industry’s annual event in Cannes, Enea will present a new Mobile IP stack for the OSE operating system. This technology enables enhanced data communication and mobile services for next-generation wireless terminals and networks. Mobile IP brings seamless mobility to embedded devices, such as mobile phones, thus facilitating secure and reliable connections. Usually, a host’s IP address uniquely identifies the host at a particular point of connection to the Internet. The Mobile IP protocol enables a mobile host to be addressed via the IP address that it uses in its home network (home IP address), regardless of the network to which it is currently physically connected. This makes it possible to maintain ongoing network connections, even when the mobile host is moving across great distances or from one network to another. For example, existing TCP connections will not be disconnected while moving around from network to network. Having a fixed IP address is a prerequisite for many services (such as Voice over IP, gaming and messaging), since it provides “always on” peer-to-peer Internet communication in the 3G network.

JavaTM Technology for OSE
At 3GSM, Enea will demonstrate the integration of a Java PoweredTM technology from IBM for the OSE real-time operating system. Developers of mobile communication devices relying on the OSE RTOS can now take advantage of IBM’s certified Java PoweredTM technology, bringing more interoperability to embedded devices, such as mobile phones. The need for formally certified Java solutions is particularly strong in markets requiring application interoperability, as is the case with next-generation wireless devices. The OSE solution provides developers of mobile phones with a runtime environment that is compliant with the official Java specification for Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) and offers an open operating system solution. The solution for OSE also offers a powerful set of tools, including a complete Java IDE and accessory plug-ins, such as profiling and system analysis.

At the 3GSM World Congress, Enea will also demonstrate advanced mobile gaming with the Sony Ericsson T610 and Z600 mobile phones using the OSE operating system and mophunTM gaming technology. Visitors to the Enea booth will have the chance to test the Sony Ericsson Bluetooth Race Car and win a Sony-Ericsson T610 mobile phone.
