OSE RTOS Powers Anritsu PureFlow Traffic Shaper Bandwidth Control Engine

9/21/2004 - Enea Embedded Technology, a leading provider of embedded software for the communications market, announced that it has signed a major contract with Anritsu Japan. Anritsu, a global leader in the telecommunications, optical and wireless industries, has chosen the OSE real-time operating system as a core technology for Anritsu’s PureFlowTM Traffic Shaper bandwidth control engine. The contract with Anritsu is another success within Enea’s strategic endeavors to address the important Asian market for communications and network equipment. OSE is the leading operating system for the communications market in Europe and USA. Enea has been taking an active part in the Japanese market since 2001.

“In Europe and the USA, our OSE real-time operating system is already widely recognized for use in network and communications equipment,” explained Christophe Ballan, Enea Embedded Technology’s executive vice president of sales, Eurasia. “We are very pleased to see that our advanced OSE technology is now becoming well recognized by leading companies on the Japanese market, such as Anritsu. We are confident that we will be able to continue to extend this success further into the Asian market.”

Anritsu’s high-precision “PureFlow Traffic Shaper” bandwidth control engine protects entire IP networks from the traffic burst transmitted by the streaming servers and real-time encoders that are used in IP network video distribution systems. It permits simultaneous control of ten one-gigabit links that support high-quality IP network video distribution services. Communication carriers or ISPs (Internet Service Providers) can easily control bandwidth and ensure smooth operation of high-precision content distribution services on the network without requiring changes in IP network topology and network equipment. Anritsu chose the OSE RTOS, because the company required memory management support and error detection capabilities that improve reliability and security within systems that feature hard real-time and a low memory footprint.

Yuhei Iwasaki, manager for Anritsu’s PureFlow business promotion, explained: “We selected OSE because it has a proven track record. The main criteria that led us to choose OSE were its high-availability, high-reliability, and scalability as well as its capacity for distributed systems. With OSE, these are all feasible without adverse effects on overall system performance.”

The OSE RTOS is well suited for use in complex, distributed and fault tolerant communication systems. It offers advanced features such as built-in error-handling and high-availability, automatic supervision and dynamic memory management, that can dramatically reduce the time and cost of developing and maintaining a real-time system while simultaneously improving quality and reliability. In OSE, the kernel manages interprocess communication transparently, regardless of the processor in which a process is located.
