Overview:
Enea Linux v2.0 is a hardened, commercial grade
Linux based on specially selected Yocto ProjectTM packages for communication and
networking needs customized for each customer. Many complex networking and
communications applications place high demands on latency and determinism that
Linux even with its real-time extensions cannot meet. Enea Linux with LWRT,
Light-Weight RunTime environment, is the solution that secures the required
real-time performance and behavior for such applications.

Who
Should Attend:

  • Managers working in the telecom or networking space who are interested in a
    commercially supported Linux distribution customized for a) the
    telecom/networking market, b) their specific Linux package requirements, and c)
    their specific hardware platform
  • Engineers and Managers working in the telecom or networking space who have
    Linux based applications that require more stringent real-time performance and
    behavior that their current Linux solution does not seem able to meet.

What you will learn:

  • How to get a customized Linux distribution and support plan based on your
    specific software and hardware requirements
  • How the Enea Light-weight RunTime (LWRT) environment model works and what
    real-time performance advantages and robust features it provides
  • LWRT performance metrics versus PTHREADS and Linux PREEMPT_RT real-time
    extensions
