Wind River is working with HP to certify Network Equipment Building System (NEBS)-compliant HP ProLiant servers for network functions virtualization (NFV) applications.
Specifically, Wind River networking and communications products currently in certification with HP include the following:
- Wind River Linux
- Wind River Open Virtualization
- Carrier Grade Profile for Wind River Linux
HP's portfolio of servers includes carrier-grade NEBS-compliant servers optimized for the needs of telecom service providers and network equipment suppliers.
"The carrier network is undergoing a transformation arising from the potential that comes with NFV. By taking advantage of a virtualized or cloud environment through NFV, the telecom industry could reap the flexibility, scalability, cost and energy benefits that IT data centers already enjoy," said Glenn Seiler, vice president of networking solutions at Wind River. "By combining Wind River’s decades of telecom experience with servers from the market leader like HP, we’re enabling a new generation of carrier grade, NFV-ready servers for the changing telecommunications market."
