Enea Linux

Enea Linux is a purpose built commercial embedded Linux distribution for multiple architectures. It is Yocto Project compatible and aligned with the Yocto Project release schedule. Enea Linux enables high throughput and low latency for physical networking and NFV applications.

A COMPLETE EMBEDDED LINUX SOLUTION

Enea Linux provides high throughput, low latency, and determinism, specifically with physical networking and NFV use-cases in mind.

It offers optimized Linux kernels and driver configurations focused on networking use cases and specific customer needs.

A TRUSTED PARTNER IN ENEA

Keeping up with the increasingly complex processor architecture and massive feature growth represents a significant risk in getting an embedded solution to market.

The support from a trusted partner with a mature embedded Linux platform is the key to reduce time-to-market and mitigate business-risks, so that you can develop groundbreaking software faster and more cost-effectively.

USE-CASE DRIVEN PROFILES

CARRIER GRADE PROFILE

The Carrier Grade profile provide a robust and secure platform for Carrier Grade platforms and applications.

NETWORKING PROFILE

The Networking profile provides a physical networking configuration optimized for high networking throughput.

REAL-TIME PROFILE

The Real-time profile is tuned and optimized to provide low latency and deterministic behaviour for use in time-sensitive applications.

STANDARD PROFILE

The Standard profile provides a base configuration for building deterministic embedded platforms and applications.

REDUCED TIME-TO-MARKET

Enea Linux provides ready-to-use access to the feature set of the entire Yocto Project through “SMART” package management, enabling customers to add packages on their own during development. Enea Linux also offers use case specific optimization for physical and virtualized networking services beyond what is available out of the box  from the open source community today.

REDUCED TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP

Enea takes the cost and risk out of your Linux platform by providing you with a mature distribution and experienced support. Over the life cycle of your Linux based solution, support from a proven commercial partner is significantly cheaper and risk-averse than a solution in-house, allowing your development team to focus on product value.

REDUCED RISK AND DEVELOPMENT COST

Enea Linux incorporates the feature growth and maturity of the open source community, and introduces minimal software lock-in. The optimized and hardened virtualization profile for x86 and ARM includes Virtualized Network Service samples for simplified VNF development.

Enea Linux is proven in use at Tier 1 TEMs and offers liability and infringement protection, customized product life cycle management, and a range of support, training and security services.

HARDWARE AGNOSTIC

As an independent embedded Linux provider, Enea has a unique position to meet the needs of communications applications and provide software solutions that are hardware vendor agnostic. Enea is the only Independent Software Vendor (ISV) involved in both Linaro and Yocto.

ENEA LINUX TOOLS

The Enea Linux tools suite consists solely of open source development tools covering all phases of the development process - from building Linux images to application development, including tracing, profiling, and debugging.
