Enea Rolls Out Element 2.2 Middleware Platform

Enea (Nordic Exchange/Small Cap/ENEA), a leading provider of network software and services, announced the availability of Element(TM) version 2.2. The latest version of Enea’s proven carrier-grade middleware platform provides higher levels of service continuity through a powerful application management framework (AMF) that is aligned with the Service Availability Forum (SAF) AIS-AMF specification.

Carrier-grade systems must be able to deliver high availability (99.999 percent or greater system uptime) without loss of service continuity. Achieving this goal requires the system to be able to maintain customer data and session state without disruption across a wide variety of fault-recovery scenarios. To achieve this, availability software must be able to manage all the heterogeneous resources involved in delivering the service. In an open building-block design, middleware manages all critical resources to enable continuity of delivered services.

For designers of telecommunication equipment who must meet carrier grade requirements Enea’s Element is a proven high availability middleware platform that provides a scalable “off-the-shelf” solution which dramatically improves development productivity reducing time-to-market and minimizing project risk.

“With the release of Element 2.2 Enea is enabling our customers to meet the expectations for availability and dependability while running on off-the-shelf computing platforms.” said Virginia Walker, senior vice president of corporate strategy and marketing at Enea. “Furthermore, our goal is to ensure that our customers can achieve this without having to tailor their applications for each particular hardware platform.”

The latest release of Element adds significant technology enhancements including:

  • Software Management – Management of application executables, image verification and synchronization, cluster boot, image distribution, and support for node-level upgrades
  • High Availability – Support for SAF AMF Service Units & Service Groups, and N+M redundancy model
  • Expanded Environment Support – Support for heterogeneous, mixed-endian processing environments
