Enea Grows Linux Offering Through Broadened Technology Solutions and Industry Expertise
Stockholm, Sweden, and San Jose, CA, December 7, 2007 – Enea (Nordic Exchange/Small Cap/ENEA), a world leading provider of network software and services, today announced the establishment of a dedicated Enea Linux Competence Center (ELCC). The center was developed following Enea’s acquisition of Swedish company, QiValue Technologies, a leading provider of Linux solutions, earlier this year. The acquisition has proven to be strategically sound, and the ELCC further enables Enea to bolster its Linux expertise and strengthen its Linux software offering to meet growing market demands.
Industry analyst firm, Venture Development Corporation reports that manufacturers of embedded systems are selecting Linux more often than any other operating system, with a majority of the developers stating that they would opt for Linux for their next projects. Linux is a key component of the Enea Accelerator Platform™, which allows equipment manufacturers to more efficiently provide carriers with converged network solutions.
“Enea is committed to delivering commercial, carrier-grade software platforms that enable telecommunications, automotives and medical equipment manufacturers to more quickly respond to evolving market demands and reduce development costs,” said Gregory Singh, Senior Vice President Nordic Services, Enea. “Our greatest challenge is continuously recruiting top-talent programmers to meet the high demand for Linux-based solutions. We definitely have some of the world’s most qualified developers at the ELCC.”
The ELCC currently has 40 employees, and Enea aims to increase this to a staff of 60 within the coming months. For more information about Enea or the ELCC, please visit www.enea.com.
