Pittsburgh - TimeSys(R) Corporation, a leader in embedded Linux(R) technologies and development tools, today launched the first program that enables telecommunications equipment manufacturers and network equipment providers to rapidly upgrade 2.6-based Linux distributions for PowerPC and x86 platforms to the OSDL Carrier Grade Linux Requirements Definition version 2.0.2 (CGL 2.O).

The widely endorsed OSDL CGL 2.0 requirements were developed with input from the world's largest network equipment providers and feature major improvements in performance, reliability, security and high availability. TimeSys is the first Linux vendor to go to market with a CGL 2.0 registered distribution. This early support for CGL 2.0 has now been expanded into the first program for rapidly integrating CGL 2.0 features into 2.6 Linux distributions for PowerPC and x86 platforms.

"TimeSys continues to take a leadership role in accelerating the adoption of Linux in the telecommunications industry," said Tom Hanrahan, OSDL engineering director. "Their early, public support of the OSDL CGL 2.0 requirements will speed the integration of this functionality in network devices. We are extremely pleased at the rate at which Carrier Grade Linux is becoming a key part of telecommunications solutions."

About the TimeSys CGL 2.0 Upgrade Program

The TimeSys CGL 2.0 Upgrade Program is offered as an annual subscription and includes:

-- Upgrade of any 2.6-based PowerPC or x86 Linux distribution certified by TimeSys to a complete OSDL CGL 2.0 distribution within 30 days of joining the program
-- Ongoing access to the latest open source updates
-- Advanced tools to enable further customization of CGL 2.0 distributions to developer specifications

"The TimeSys CGL 2.0 Upgrade Program is the latest example of our commitment to continuously bring the latest, standards-based embedded Linux platforms to market," said Larry Weidman, president and CEO of TimeSys. "The Upgrade Program delivers the latest CGL features now, while enabling developers to keep pace with evolving open source efforts and emerging CGL requirements through ongoing access to updates from TimeSys."
