End-to-End Security Ensures Virtualization is Viable for Critical Industrial Control and Telecom Applications

By Charlie Ashton The business-level benefits of virtualization are becoming well understood in applications such as industrial control and telecom. Companies worldwide have analyzed real-world use cases and concluded that major savings in lifetime operational costs are achievable by deploying software-based, virtualized systems compatible with open standards, instead of traditional fixed-function physical equipment based on proprietary, vertically integrated architectures. There…

Compiling with Wind River Diab

By Kumar Senthil and Liviu Caraman from the Connected Vehicle team at Wind River Choosing a compiler for automotive applications can be a difficult task, and choosing the wrong one can lead to pain and frustration. It could also lead to your product not working or not being able to meet appropriate safety certifications. Sounds dire? It doesn’t have to be…
Continuous Delivery, Embedded Systems, and Simulation

Continuous Delivery, Embedded Systems, and Simulation

By guest author Jakob Engblom Continuous Delivery (CD) and Continuous Integration (CI) are two related and important concepts in modern software engineering and software product development.  Doing integration is a prerequisite to doing delivery and deployment, and getting a CI flow in place is often the hardest part of getting to CD. Doing CI for general-purpose software on a general-purpose…
While in Barcelona, see how to introduce edge services without ripping up your core network

While in Barcelona, see how to introduce edge services without ripping up your core network

By Charlie Ashton In the telecom world, true “green field” opportunities are rare. When Elon Musk fires up a few Falcon Heavies and puts a thousand people on Mars who can’t live without Facebook, that will represent a green field (or orange field) opportunity for an enterprising service provider. Until then, most operators who roll out new services face the…
