PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGIES JOINS OSDL CLG WORKING GPOUP.

Performance Technologies (NASDAQ:PTIX , a leading developer of communication platforms and systems and Open Source Development Labs (OSDL), a global consortium dedicated to accelerating the adoption of Linux(R) and open source software, has announced that Performance Technologies has joined OSDL and will participate in the Lab's Carrier Grade Linux (CGL) Working Group to advance support for the telecom and networking markets.

"Linux-based solutions like our award-winning NexusWare(R) Core development environment have helped reduce time-to-market and operating costs for communications platforms for nearly seven years," said John Grana, senior vice president of systems engineering for Performance Technologies. "Performance Technologies' active support of OSDL's Carrier Grade Linux initiative is consistent with our strategy to deliver cost-effective, highly integrated and high-performance solutions, allowing our customers to concentrate on application development and improving time-to-market."

The OSDL Carrier Grade Linux (CGL) initiative started with the vision that communication services will be delivered using open standard carrier grade platforms. A Linux kernel with Carrier Grade characteristics is an essential building block component of such platforms and architectures. Since its formation, the working group has produced three versions of a specification to define these required capabilities.

"Major telecom equipment manufacturers continue to see the benefits of adopting Linux to reduce costs and enable a higher level of flexibility in telecommunications devices," said Bill Weinberg, senior technology analyst for OSDL. "Performance Technologies' support of OSDL's CGL initiative strengthens our work to promote the development and acceptance of highly integrated, Linux-based solutions for use in mission critical applications."

NexusWare Core is a comprehensive, highly integrated, Linux-based development, integration and management environment designed to improve quality and speed time-to-market for system engineers using Performance Technologies' solutions to build packet-based wireless, IMS, IP telephony and defense and homeland security systems.
