Enea (Nordic Exchange/Small Cap/ENEA), a world leading provider of network software and services, announced that it will present its high availability ‘middleware’, known as Element(TM), at the Embedded Masterclass in Cambridge on May 3rd. Enea’s embedded software products are used in more than half of the world’s mobile phones and wireless basestations, making Enea uniquely qualified to present on network software topics. Enea’s customers include Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung, Lucent, NEC, BAE Systems and Sepura.
“Middleware is a software layer that sits above the operating system,” says Joel White, UK Manager for Enea. “It provides essential system management and communication functionality that simplifies system development and enhances system availability. Today’s telecom and datacom systems are very complex, but they must still deliver ‘five nines’ or greater availability. This is the area that our middleware addresses.”
With ever increasing time to market demands, equipment makers are seeing that it is more efficient to buy their system software platform, including the operating system, data management, middleware, and network protocols, off the shelf. Enea and its partners are now offering pre-integrated packages that build on the many years of experience gained from working with leading OEMs such as Ericsson, Motorola, Nokia and Fujitsu. Enea’s Accelerator platforms provide an off-the-shelf solution that enables equipment makers to slash time to market and development cost, and focus precious engineering resources on value-added applications and services that give them a competitive advantage.
“We are very pleased to be involved with this year’s Embedded Masterclass,” added Joel White. “The Masterclass has always been a good forum for sharing ideas, networking and learning about what’s new in this area of engineering. The focus for this year’s event is accelerating network software development. This is a big issue for most engineers, so it should attract a sizeable audience.”
Other technologies to be discussed at the Embedded Masterclass will be the latest developments in graphical user interfaces (GUIs), FPGAs, and management tools that facilitate software re-use and improve embedded system performance.
The Embedded Masterclass is a one-day event that brings the developers of hi-tech products together with the vendors of development tools, hardware and software. Registration is free for engineers and project managers within hi-tech companies. There will be a full agenda of technical presentations and a tabletop exhibition.
