SAN JOSE, Calif. and STOCKHOLM, Sweden, July 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/
-- Enea (OTC: ENEA; Nordic Exchange), a world leading provider of network
software and services, today announced that its LINX for Linux product is
now freely available as an Open Source offering complete with source code,
documentation, test programs, a startup guide, and program build system
guide. LINX(TM) for Linux delivers transparent, reliable, high- performance
interprocess communication services for complex distributed systems that
employ multiple operating systems.
LINX for Linux provides a system-wide, high-performance IPC solution
that eliminates the need to use multiple IPC services in the same system.
Utilizing a high-performance, lightweight direct messaging-passing
technology, LINX for Linux provides the performance and versatility needed
to satisfy local and remote IPC requirements across all CPU, operating
system and interconnect boundaries. It enables designers to mix Linux and
Enea's proprietary RTOS offerings, OSE(TM) and OSEck, in one system. The
LINX protocol has a small footprint that makes it ideal as a transport for
low memory devices, like DSPs. LINX for OSEck now supports several of the
leading DSPs in the telecom infrastructure and wireless terminal market.
The LINX protocol is also portable to other operating systems.
"Recent analyst studies have shown that open source software is used by
over 70 percent of developers worldwide which helps drive interoperability,
collaboration and more open standards for data use," said John Smolucha,
vice president of product marketing and business development at Enea. "We
are confident that offering this fundamental communications framework
freely will increase access to this superior technology, and enable system
designers to get higher quality products to market more rapidly."
LINX for Linux makes it easier to conceptualize, model, partition, and
scale complex distributed systems. LINX is media and protocol independent.
The LINX protocol may run natively over any interconnect, but may also use
other standard protocols such as TCP and UDP as "bearer protocols." The
LINX addressing model supports any system topology (multiple hops,
gateways, etc.) and its efficient connection-based algorithms allow LINX to
scale well to very large systems.
Enea will continue to offer LINX for OSE and LINX for OSEck offerings
under the standard Enea proprietary commercial license terms. LINX for
Linux as Open Source is available now under a dual BSD/GPL license, and may
be accessed at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/linx.
