AUSTIN, Texas, and ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Wind River Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:WIND) and Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT) today announced the expansion of their Center of Excellence co-development technology initiative for processors that implement the PowerPC architecture. The successful collaboration has been expanded to provide Wind River's leading software support for Motorola's S1 family of network security processors, with the two companies teaming up to deliver the market's first off-the-shelf embedded development solution for hardware-accelerated encryption of network traffic. The optimized hardware-software offering is designed to enable customers to quickly develop secure network applications in markets such as cable and DSL modems, broadband access points in SOHO-gateways and routers, as well as network edge access concentrators. The fully integrated solution combines Wind River's suite of security software products, including the WindNet(TM) networking protocols for VxWorks, with Motorola's S1 family of network security processors -- beginning with the MPC180. This announcement extends a long list of Wind River products supporting Motorola processors that implement the PowerPC instruction set architecture through a Center of Excellence agreement announced earlier this year (see Wind River, Motorola Create Center of Excellence to Deliver Leading Software for Prominent PowerPC Microprocessors, February 12, 2001). "This expanded collaboration with Wind River will further enable our customers to design systems that take advantage of Motorola's highly scalable and flexible security technology architecture," said Dr. Larry Walker, vice president and general manager of Motorola's Networking and Computing Systems Group. "Our S1 family of network security processors provides the ideal foundation for secure networking. That foundation can now be extended with Wind River's security software -- providing developers a extensive platform for designing their next generation security-enabled networking equipment."
