Business Focus:
For over 30 years, Wind RiverŪ has been the global leader in embedded technology. Wind River offers the industry's most comprehensive device development portfolio, backed by award-winning customer support. Complete vertical platforms built on our market-leading VxWorks real-time operating system and commercial open source solutions enable our customers to exploit fully the unique advantages of each approach. Wind River's broad portfolio of product offerings supports many segments of the defense and aerospace industry including: command and control, unmanned systems, communications, avionics, and space. Wind River continues its record of safe, secure and reliable products with new product introductions leveraging open source software projects focusing on secure & reliable communications, networking function virtualization (NFV), and the Internet of Things. In addition to best of class products, Wind River provides exemplary professional services and customer support. In 2014, Wind River received its sixth consecutive prestigious Confirmit ACE Award for outstanding worldwide customer satisfaction.
Products/ Services:
VxWorks is a high-performance, safe, secure, and certifiable (DO-178C, IEC 61508, EUROCAE ED-12C) real-time operating system that supports multiple open standards including ARINC 653, FACE, POSIX, and MILS standards. Wind River Linux is the market-leading commercial grade Linux solution for embedded device development that delivers all the advantages of open source, plus the vision, the innovation, the business risk mitigation, and the support and maintenance that only a mature technology vendor can provide. Wind RiverŪ SimicsŪ provides a simulation of a target hardware system that software developers can use to develop, debug, integrate, and test their software. Able to simulate systems comprising of many boards, LRUs, or full computer networks, Simics reduces the risks of shipping late, overrunning budget, and releasing a poor quality product. Wind River Carrier Grade Communications Server is a fully integrated and feature-complete NFV software platform having ultra-reliability and high performance mandated for mission-critical networks. Based on open source and open industry standards, but with the carrier grade extensions required, Carrier Grade Communications Server is the only commercial server solution enabling service providers to maintain the rigorous uptime required as networks transition to a virtualized infrastructure. Wind River Intelligent Network Platform is an integrated embedded software system that serves as a run-time foundation for network elements of all kinds. The platform integrates the key software components needed to design high-performance, intelligent network applications in a consolidated management and data plane system. Wind River Intelligent Device Platform XT is a scalable, sustainable, and secure development environment that simplifies the development, integration, and deployment of gateways for the Internet of Things (IoT). Wind River Professional Services encompass Wind River pre-integrated proprietary platforms, open source intellectual property, industry consortia standards, and government regulations.
