Overview: High-Performance Multithreaded Processors Meet Carrier Grade Linux – A Powerful Combination to Deliver the Next Generation of Network Equipment
Join Sun Microsystems and Wind River for an informative Web seminar discussing the growing need for high-performance processors running Carrier Grade Linux. You’ll learn what to look for, what applications they target, what benefits they bring, and how using the right operating system can achieve even greater results.
The demand to deliver bandwidth-intensive broadband services to an ever-growing number of intelligent connected devices is having a profound effect on how equipment manufacturers design network elements and core systems. The next generation of network equipment must incorporate technology that delivers superior packet processing performance, with greater system efficiency, without sacrificing the reliability and high availability the industry mandates.
Project teams developing network elements face complex design decisions in both hardware and software components. Multiprocessor, multicore, and multithreaded technologies are rapidly being adopted to help eliminate the triple threat of flattened processor performance, increased heat dissipation with higher frequency processors, and the widening gap in memory latency. On the software side, application engineers are leveraging open-source, adopting Carrier Grade Linux operating systems for their stability, reliability, and performance. Keeping up with demands for a high degree of parallel processing existing in hardware, Carrier Grade Linux has multiprocessing capabilities built in and is quickly becoming the OS of choice for next-generation networking equipment.
