Green Hills Software Announces Single Source Access to Advanced Layer 3 Routing Solutions

IP Routing Protocols for Its Platform for Secure Networking Enables Unmatched Device Security While Enabling Fastest Time to Deployment

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - January 23, 2008) - Green Hills Software, Inc., the technology leader in device software optimization (DSO) and real-time operating systems (RTOS), today announced the availability of a comprehensive collection of advanced layer 3 IPv4 and IPv6 routing software products intended for use with its Platform for Secure Networking. Green Hills recently licensed the industry-leading GateD® IP routing technology and added the seasoned development and design experts to its staff.

An important initiative that highlights the need for secure IP routing is Net-Centric Warfare (NCW) and how it's driving situational awareness to the next levels. Battlefield commanders will use networks to share voice, data, and video between air, maritime, and fixed stations worldwide. Internet Protocol (IP) is one of the key technologies enabling this vision.

"Net-Centric Warfare is transforming the battlefield into an enormous, dynamic, mobile collection of globally networked assets. Robust, efficient, intelligent routing software is required to ensure real-time communications across this complex grid," commented Dan Mender, vice president, business development, Green Hills Software. "We address one of NCW's biggest challenges by providing the effective means to deliver this disparate information in real-time, securely and reliably through the combination of a proven pedigree of advanced operating system technologies and IP routing solutions."

Derived from the gold standard for routing, GateD, this comprehensive collection of IP routing protocols includes RFC-compliant support for RIPv2, RIPng, OSPFv2, OSPFv3, BGP, ISIS, VRRP, MSDP, DVMRP and PIM, where these protocols are rigorously tested and validated for both RFC conformance and system interoperability in combination with the Green Hills INTEGRITY® family of RTOSs.

Until now, customers had to cobble together solutions and expend extra development cycles and money integrating, testing and validating their designs when these requirements existed. With the new Green Hills solution, network device manufacturers can eliminate this added burden and bring cost-effective, reliable, secure core, edge, enterprise and SOHO class devices to market faster while supporting a complete set of integrated advanced routing and IPv4/IPv6 functionality.

"The combination of our industry-proven protocols with the secure, reliable Platform for Secure Networking creates a robust, tamper-proof foundation for customers requiring Layer 3 routing support," commented Susan Hares, director, networking communications, Green Hills Software. "In today's networks, secure routing is critical because many routing devices are bombarded by security attacks. This complete, single source solution satisfies a wide range of device requirements while enabling rapid time to deployment with the highest levels of confidence."
