ABSTRACT
This article reports that TimeSys Corp. is the first vendor to register a Linux distribution according to the OSDL Carrier Grade Linux (CGL) Requirements Definition version 2.0.1. in December 2004. CGL-Registered TimeSys Linux Distributions are available for any PowerPC or x86 platform and work with the 2.6 Linux kernel to meet the advanced real-time needs of telecommunications equipment providers. OSDL is a global consortium of leading technology companies dedicated to accelerating the adoption of Linux. OSDL hosts and coordinates the CGL working group which brings together key telecom equipment and Linux distribution vendors that collectively help business harden Linux for carrier grade deployment. The CGL working group published its version 2 requirements definition in October 2003. The CGL version 2 requirements document reflects key requirements of the world's leading network equipment vendors. CGL-Registered Linux distributions are those for which the vendor has provided full disclosure of how they meet these high-priority feature/function requirements. The CGL Requirements Definition, version 2.0.1, specifies major advances in security, high availability and clustering technologies over its predecessor, CGL 1.1. Though the CGL working group is focused on Linux enhancements to support carrier grade applications within the telecommunications industry, many of the features defined by the CGL specification are also of importance to other industry sectors, such as industrial control, defense and aerospace.
