Enea Linux and System Management on the ARMv8-based AMD Embedded R-Series Processor

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, February 17, 2015. Enea (NASDAQ OMX Nordic: ENEA), a leading operating system solution vendor within the communication domain announces Enea Linux support for the 64-bit AMD embedded R-Series system-on-chip (SoC) processor, codenamed “Hierofalcon”.

“Enea is one of our leading embedded Linux partners for the 64-bit ARM-based AMD Embedded R-Series SoC processor”, said Dilip Ramachandran, Senior Director of Marketing, Communications Infrastructure Solutions, AMD Embedded Solutions. “We aim to provide a hardware and software platform for telecommunications network infrastructure providers interested in a flexible NFV implementation to manage networking services with configurable hardware to help reduce complexity and cost.”

Enea Linux makes prototyping in the networking and telecom markets easy and cost-effective through the site, which gathers everything needed to download, deploy and customize an open version of Enea Linux. When customers move to the product development phase they have the options to continue with the open version or acquire the fully supported commercial version based on the same code base they used in the prototype phase.

With the objective of further reducing development costs and time-to-market, Enea Linux can be complemented with the Enea Element middleware, a software framework that provides high availability (HA) and on-device management functionality to quickly develop carrier grade network applications.

“The AMD Embedded R-Series SoC processor is a compelling and highly competent hardware solution in the NFV space. Together with AMD, we ensure that we have the perfect software platform in place for anyone implementing network function and connected endpoint devices”, said Daniel Forsgren, SVP Product Management, Enea.  

Based on the ARM Cortex™-A57 architecture, the upcoming AMD Embedded R-Series SoC processor, codenamed “Hierofalcon”, is the first 64-bit ARM-based platform from AMD, designed for communications and networking infrastructure including network function virtualization (NFV).
