ZTE Selects Enea's OSE 5 RTOS for 3G Handsets

Enea (STO:ENEA), a world-leading provider of network software and services, announced that ZTE Corporation (ZTCOF.PK), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, has selected Enea’s flagship real-time operating system OSE 5 for its 3G mobile phone chip-sets.

“After evaluating several options we have come to the conclusion that OSE 5 is the only real-time operating system that can help us shorten time to market and reduce the overall system cost,” says Cai Youfang, Director of ZTE’s mobile chip-set division. “OSE 5 is clearly the most proven and complete real-time operating system in the market for 3G handsets.”

OSE is a family of compact, high-performance deterministic real-time operating systems. Optimized for mobile computing applications, the OSE family addresses all aspects of low-cost, feature-rich 3G handset design, from DSP baseband processing to RISC application processing. The OSE family delivers fully-preemptive, event-driven, real-time response. It also features a power management system that extends battery life, a crash-safe file system with flash support, and dynamic download capability, which enhances mobile device flexibility by enabling new applications to be downloaded to systems as they operate in the field.

“We are very pleased that ZTE has decided to extend the license agreement with Enea for its 3G mobile phone chip-set solutions to also include our OSE 5 real-time operating system,” says Marcus Hjortsberg, vice president Asia sales. “With this agreement, Enea will provide a complete operating system solution to ZTE mobile phone chip-sets addressing both the base band processing on the DSP as well as the application operating system running on the ARM processor.”

ZTE is also China’s largest publicly traded telecom equipment manufacturer with shares traded on both the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and Shenzhen Stock Exchange.
