Juniper Networks Licenses FSMLabs Technology for J-series Services Router

J-Series Products Leverage Real-time Capabilities of RTCore BSD

SOCORRO, NM and Sunnyvale, CA January 31, 2005 - FSMLabs, (http://www.fsmlabs.com), a core system software development company targeting mission-critical applications, and Juniper Networks today announced that Juniper Networks has licensed FSMLabs hard real-time kernel technology, RTCore® BSD for use in its J-series Services Router.

"The modern design of the JUNOS operating system has allowed Juniper the flexibility to employ RTCore® BSD as a component of JUNOS, enhancing the real-time features of the J-series routers. We are pleased to be working with FSMLabs using its best-in-class solution to decrease the J-series time-to-market," commented David Tucker, J-series product marketing manager, Juniper Networks.

FSMLabs RTCore® technology is deployed in demanding embedded environments, where real-time software must run at the performance levels of the underlying hardware. RTCore® BSD uses the same POSIX real-time core as FSMLabs RTLinux® but within FreeBSD or NetBSD environments. "RTCore BSD helped Juniper meet product performance goals and get to market quickly and cost-effectively," added Victor Yodaiken, president of FSMLabs. "Our real-time technology lets equipment manufacturers deliver devices that operate at near-line speeds for distinct competitive advantages within either Linux or BSD environments."

Leading OEMs today build on FSMLabs RTCore®, to develop and deploy applications that include routers, satellite control, telescopes, jet engine test stands, and high performance graphical displays. FSMLabs lets OEMs focus on value-added development activities instead of spending weeks or months configuring and tuning embedded operating system performance. By leveraging off-the-shelf RTCore®, developers can deliver working products, more quickly, with the reliability and responsiveness needed in mission-critical applications.
