Pleasanton, CA— To strengthen its position in the agent development environment for embedded platforms, AdventNet Inc. reports that it has partnered with QNX Software Systems to help address the requirements of agent developers using the QNX Neutrino real-time operating system (RTOS). AdventNet provides standards-based management software for applications and networks.
AdventNet's Agent Toolkit C Edition is an ANSI C-based rapid prototyping and development tool for building SNMP agents, TL1 agents, CLI agents, and multi-protocol agents with SNMP, TL1, CLI, and HTTP adaptors. It offers an end-to-end development platform to compile, test, and develop agents with a minimal footprint.
QNX's Neutrino RTOS provides a reliable microkernel architecture with predictable real-time performance, robust memory protection, field upgradability, scalability, distributed processing, POSIX-based portability, and an embeddable windowing system, all perfected during more than 20 years in mission-critical environments. Neutrino targets the embedded market's most popular CPUs and boards.
'We're pleased to partner with QNX Neutrino to provide our affordable, standards-based, multi-protocol agent development environment for its widely accepted embedded platform. AdventNet Agent Tookit has been successfully deployed by many leading OEM customers. With our support for the QNX Neutrino platform, we're further extending our reach,' says Sridhar Vembu, AdventNet's CEO.
Linda Campbell, QNX's strategic alliances director, adds that, 'The remote monitoring and configuration enabled by the AdventNet Agent Toolkit complements QNX Neutrino's dynamic architecture, which allows virtually any software component to be remotely started, stopped, or replaced on demand. Moreover, the toolkit's low cost and small memory footprint make it a viable option for a variety of resource-constrained embedded systems.'
