Netas Selects Green Hills Software for its Router and Switch Communications Products

Proven RTOS and Advanced IDE Enable Reliability for Products in Harsh Tactical Environments

NUREMBERG, GERMANY — March 1, 2011 — Embedded World — Green Hills Software, the largest independent vendor of embedded software solutions, has announced that its INTEGRITY® real-time operating system (RTOS) and MULTI® integrated development environment (IDE) are being used by Netas in the company’s communications switch and router products targeted for use in harsh tactical environments. Netas, Turkey’s leading telecommunications infrastructure provider and systems integrator, deploys best-of-breed networks and telecom solutions to organizations including Turk Telekom and the Turkish Armed Forces.


The INTEGRITY RTOS forms the basis of Netas products, which include the Tactical Multiservice Switcher/Router (MSSR) and Media Gateway and the Ruggedized Converged Access Switch (CAS). MSSR was developed for access and backbone switching requirements of next-generation Tactical Area Networks based on IP technologies. CAS is a switch, router and media gateway that provides both voice and IP data communications using time-division multiplexing (TDM) and packet data architectures. It can also be connected to other switches to deliver voice and circuit switched data communication. Both products utilize a 20Gbit/s network processing unit and traffic manager chipset.


The INTEGRITY RTOS runs on Freescale PowerQUICC II™ MPC8280 and PowerQUICC III™ MPC8560 integrated communications processors and manages all the switching functions within the CAS and MSSR. Commenting on the selection process, Omer Aydin, Director of Defense Product Solutions, Netas, said: “We embarked on an extensive technical investigation into embedded operating systems and selected INTEGRITY due to its ability to provide virtual memory management, deterministic real-time performance and its supporting ecosystem of integrated debugging tools. Interrupts generated by data path hardware must be serviced in real time in order to provide wire-speed switching; the INTEGRITY high-performance kernel enabled us to achieve this. The MULTI development environment allowed rapid development and reduced our time-to-market.”


Christopher Smith, vice president marketing, Green Hills Software, said, “The Netas engineering team is highly experienced in the use of real-time operating systems and determined that our field-proven INTEGRITY RTOS was the most effective solution for its product development demands. Green Hills Software is pleased to have been selected as the best solution.”
