RadiSys Gets REDI

HILLSBORO, Ore. -- RadiSys(r) Corporation (NASDAQ:RSYS), a leading global provider of advanced embedded solutions, today announced that it has launched the industry's first lab for use by global ecosystem partners and customers so that they may remotely perform initial validation, testing, and demonstrations of their unique solutions on RadiSys AdvancedTCA(a) (ATCA) systems. The new facility, dubbed the REDI(tm) (RadiSys Ecosystem Demonstration and Interoperability) Lab, is available 24/7 and accessed via a dedicated, secure broadband connection. Physically located at company headquarters in Hillsboro, Oregon, the customized lab is outfitted with the RadiSys Promentum(r) ATCA application-ready platform loaded with the latest hardware and software.

The REDI Lab Benefits ATCA Ecosystem Partners and Customers

The REDI Lab has already cut dramatically-from several weeks to hours-the time that RadiSys and its partners previously dedicated to initial up-front testing and self-validation, as well as preparing for, and conducting, sales demonstrations. The high-resolution webcam, for instance, enables RadiSys partners to observe platform activity, in real time, during software integration and self-validation sessions as well as perform remote demos to showcase product features to their customers.

"The REDI Lab provided live access to a wide variety of RadiSys ATCA systems without ever having to board an airplane," said Steve Looby, Director of Product Management for SANBlaze Technology. "With secure remote login and video links, our Boston-based engineering team was able to test our ATCA storage cards with several RadiSys ATCA carrier blades located 3,000 miles away in Hillsboro, Oregon. The lab proved a very creative answer to shrinking interoperability test budgets and rising travel and shipment costs."
