TimeSys' Embedded Linux Distributions to Comply with OSDL CGL 2.0

6/22/2004 - TimeSys Corporation, a leader in embedded Linux technologies and development tools, announced that it will continue its support for Carrier Grade Linux by delivering Open Source Development Lab Carrier Grade Linux 2.0-compliant Linux distributions by September of this year. The OSDL's Carrier Grade Linux Requirements Definition, version 2.0 (CGL 2.0), defines a core set of features and functionality that enable the Linux operating system to be used in more demanding applications that require reliable, carrier-grade performance.

"TimeSys is again taking a leadership role in making the Linux operating system the number one choice for new deployments in the telecommunications industry with their support of CGL 2.0," said Stuart Cohen, CEO of OSDL. "We look forward to seeing TimeSys' contributions to Carrier Grade Linux technologies as they continue to make Linux a viable option for software developers requiring carrier-grade performance."

The Carrier Grade Linux Requirements Definition, version 2.0, includes major advances in security, high availability and clustering technologies, over its predecessor, CGL 1.1, which TimeSys currently supports. Initially developed to support carrier grade applications within the telecommunications industry, many of the features defined by the Carrier Grade Linux specification are also of importance to other industry sectors, such as industrial control, defense, and aerospace.

TimeSys is working to extend CGL capabilities to all major processor architectures, including IA-32 (x86), PowerPC, ARM, MIPS, SuperH and XScale, meeting the needs of embedded developers requiring carrier-grade performance across all industries.

"Technology definitions like the OSDL's Carrier Grade Linux 2.0 and the Linux distributions and component technologies that comply with such specifications help developers build carrier grade Linux systems that meet the requirements of today's demanding telecommunications, industrial control, and defense industries," said TimeSys CEO Larry Weidman. "TimeSys' full support of and compliance with CGL 2.0 requirements is a continuation of our commitment to accelerating the adoption of Linux for all sectors of the embedded industry. We're proud to be taking an active role in furthering this technology for the benefit of the embedded marketplace and the open source community as well."
