Advanced Linux Training for Mission-Critical Conferencing

Compunetix Logo

Many of today’s forward-thinking businesses are preparing to adopt Internet Protocol version 6, so they can bring new levels of continuity, reliability, and innovation to their organizations. But for companies like Compunetix, which delivers audio conferencing solutions to military agencies, IPv6 isn’t only an opportunity for growth, it’s a U.S. Department of Defense mandate.

“IPv6 is increasingly important in many industries—especially ours,” says Ferhat Cakrak, Software Development Team Manager at Compunetix. “But it’s not easy to implement in a proprietary OS.”

To adopt a less complicated approach, and in an effort to improve uptime, Compunetix has begun migrating their embedded systems to Carrier Grade Linux. “I’m confident our downtime will be minimized with Linux,” says Cakrak. “And since the contribution to the Linux OS is worldwide, bugs are fixed and discovered a lot faster than in traditional operating systems.”

Read why Compunetix chose Linux Training from The Linux Foundation to get their Ph.D-level developers up to speed with embedded Linux development...

 

 

13-Year Software Veteran Learns New Tricks with Embedded Linux Course

Derald WoodsDerald Woods is a 13-year engineering veteran who today works in software development, designing and supporting electronic vehicle controls for heavy equipment and trucks. Lately, his time is being used to work on an ARM9-based embedded Linux solution that involves NTSC/PAL video CSI input, V4L2 overlay, and graphics provided by an SDL implementation. This work lead him to The Linux Foundation's "Embedded Linux: A Crash Course" to dig in deeper and build upon his existing knowledge in this area.

"I have had embedded Linux training from other sources, but this was an opportunity to ask questions and discuss some approaches that I have taken in the process of maintaining my own embedded Linux environment. It was good that the other class participants were also experienced Linux developers...."
