Elmic Systems Integrates Voyager IPv6 and Mobile IPv6 Products With OSE Real-Time Operating System

    SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Elmic Systems, a leading supplier
 of embedded Internet protocols, today announced that the company has
 integrated their Voyager IPv6 and Voyager Mobile IPv6 products with
 Enea Embedded Technology's OSE real-time operating system (RTOS).  Elmic's
 Voyager IPv6 makes it easy to add secure Internet connectivity, advanced
 addressing, routing, and network auto-configuration capabilities to embedded
 systems running the OSE RTOS.
     Voyager Mobile IPv6 allows an Internet-enabled mobile host such as a cell
 phone, PDA, package delivery truck, passenger jet, etc., to send and receive
 IPv6 packets using its global IPv6 home address regardless of its current
 point of attachment to the Internet.  This unchanging global IPv6 home address
 is a global network ID enabling "always on" Internet connections, as well as
 push technologies where the network initiates the connection to the mobile
 host.  Elmic System's Voyager IPv6 product is an embedded protocol stack
 written exclusively for next generation devices.  IPv6 addresses the
 shortcomings of IP version 4 by introducing many improvements.  These include
 a vastly larger number of available IP addresses, stronger security and
 encryption, plug-and-play auto-configuration and routing enhancements, among
 others.  Elmic's Voyager product is a dual protocol stack that includes both
 IPv4 and IPv6 modes.  With this method, system designers can choose to utilize
 the next generation protocol, or simply switch IPv6 functionality off and use
     "Elmic's IPv6 and mobile IPv6 protocols are ideal for adding Internet
 connectivity to a broad range of OSE-based communications and industrial
 control devices," said Vance Hilderman, Vice President of Enea Embedded
 Technology.  "Together, OSE and Elmic Systems' protocols provide an excellent
 platform for developing and deploying Internet-enabled devices, particularly
 those requiring high availability and reliability, enhanced security, and
     OSE is a fast, reliable, small footprint real-time operating system for
 communication systems that demand the highest quality in Internet-enabled
 embedded software.  It is optimized for distributed, fault-tolerant systems
 and offers advanced capabilities such as dynamic download of applications
 during runtime, advanced memory management and memory protection, multicore
 support, Bluetooth, Java and graphics.  OSE's fully preemptive kernel provides
 low latency and high rates of data throughput.  It also features an
 application- and device-independent message-passing protocol that makes it
 easy to develop distributed applications for heterogeneous multiprocessor
 systems.  OSE supports all ARM architectures and a majority of DSP
     "Enea has created an exemplary OS that demands the highest quality
 Internet enabling software and Elmic's Voyager products are a perfect match.
 Elmic Systems created an easy to use interface for the OSE RTOS that allows
 embedded systems developers to quickly mesh the speed and performance of our
 IPv6 protocols with the OSE high availability real-time kernel.  This tightly
 integrated environment helps our mutual customers produce outstanding, cutting
 edge products while allowing a shorter development cycle," said Kevin McGuire,
 President of Elmic Systems-USA.
