Wind River (WIND) has announced the Wind River Partner Validation Program with initial partners 6WIND, Continuous Computing, GoAhead Software, Oracle, RADVISION and Tail-f Systems. Partners in the program will provide validated solutions based on Wind River’s operating systems (VxWorks and Wind River Linux) and partner technologies critical to telecom and networking equipment providers, including embedded databases, high-availability middleware, networking protocols and management software.
Wind River and its partners will focus on providing pre-integrated platform solutions for infrastructure equipment being developed for broadband wireless, wireline and enterprise networks. These growth segments include 3G, Long Term Evolution (LTE), Femtocell Gateway, WiMax, Metro Ethernet, IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) and enterprise data.
Wind River’s software partners will validate the software components and provide testing and commercial support to customers.
“Wind River’s Partner Validation Program directly addresses the increasingly important business issues of time-to-market and R&D cost savings among our customers,” said Mike Langlois, general manager, networking and telecom industry, Wind River. “As part of our efforts to define and enable the networking industry’s software reference platforms, Wind River has hand selected industry leading commercial software companies in critical component spaces to create a preferred strategic relationship with Wind River. This is significant because now our customers can spend significantly less time and effort integrating software components to create a carrier-grade product.”
