Alcatel-Lucent Employs Wind River/Freescale in Wireless Base Station Project

Alcatel-Lucent will use Wind River Linux, optimized for the Freescale QorIQ P4080 multi-core processor, to develop and support the common platform for present and future generations of its wireless network products, including both time division duplex and frequency division duplex variants of 4G or LTE base stations. This includes the recently released Linux kernel version 2.6.34. The latest revision of PREEMPT RT was used to advance pre-emption capabilities and create a Linux kernel that is more deterministic, with reduced latency for a real-time response.

"Wind River is able to provide customized, accelerated access to optimized multi-core hardware and software solutions to help Alcatel-Lucent achieve faster time-to-market for its 4G solutions," stated Mike Langlois, general manager for networking and telecommunications at Wind River.
