Partner Validation Program Tackles Networking and Telecom Equipment Provider Business Issues
Networking and telecom equipment providers often struggle with three common business issues:
- Meeting time-to-market windows
- Saving R&D resources and dollars
- Developing products that can compete on a global scale
Finding a solution to tackle one of these issues is of great value. Wouldn’t it be even better if there was a solution that addressed all three?
That solution is the Wind River Partner Validation Program.
Wind River has a reputation in the device software industry for having one of the deepest and broadest partner ecosystems. Today there are well over 300 different hardware and software partner companies that make up this ecosystem. The Wind River Partner Validation Program takes a sliver of this ecosystem and focuses on the top one or two software companies offering a commercial solution in a critical technology category within the networking and telecom market. The software partners in the program have agreed to preintegrate and validate their technology components with Wind River VxWorks and/or Wind River Linux runtime platforms.
Network and telecom equipment providers who utilize a validated software ecosystem can significantly reduce the integration and quality assurance (QA) effort related to using commercial technologies. Project teams can also free up a tremendous amount of engineering time and resources to focus on product competitiveness. And, project leaders can have peace mind knowing they can get the support and assistance they need from this tight ecosystem.
The companies in the Wind River Partner Validation Program include the following:
6WIND: 6WINDGate complete, embedded networking software including fast
path, slow path, and control plane for multicore-based designs
Continuous Computing: Trillium 3G, LTE, femtocell gateway, and SS7/SIGTRAN protocol software, offering a complete standards-based control plane stack implementation
GoAhead Software: SAFfire high availability and management middleware, the leading implementation of the Service Availability Forum open specifications
Oracle: Berkeley DB, a transactional embedded data manager and Times Ten, a real-time in-memory database
RADVISION: SIP Developer Suite, a highly versatile set of tools to accelerate SIP application development
Tail-f Systems: ConfD, an on-device configuration management solution for network equipment
