ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Wind River, a world leader in delivering software for intelligent connected systems, has announced that it is working with HP to certify Wind River networking and communications software on Network Equipment Building System (NEBS)-compliant HP ProLiant servers.

Wind River networking and communications products currently in certification with HP include the following:

  • Wind River Linux
  • Wind River Open Virtualization
  • Carrier Grade Profile for Wind River Linux

    HP’s portfolio of servers includes carrier-grade NEBS-compliant servers optimized for the needs of telecom service providers and network equipment suppliers. Upon completion of certification testing, Wind River networking and communications products will join the HP certification matrix and the company will be distinguished as a preferred software vendor for the communications market. Together Wind River and HP are accelerating network transformation by helping customers become ready to quickly address network functions virtualization (NFV) applications and lower total cost of ownership through the adoption of commercial off-the shelf (COTS) hardware.

    “The carrier network is undergoing a transformation arising from the potential that comes with NFV. By taking advantage of a virtualized or cloud environment through NFV, the telecom industry could reap the flexibility, scalability, cost and energy benefits that IT data centers already enjoy,” said Glenn Seiler, vice president of networking solutions at Wind River. “By combining Wind River’s decades of telecom experience with servers from the market leader like HP, we’re enabling a new generation of carrier grade, NFV-ready servers for the changing telecommunications market.”

    Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

    During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

    She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
