Enea disclosed Linux support for the 64bit AMD embedded R-Series system-on-chip (SoC) processor, codenamed "Hierofalcon."

Enea Linux makes prototyping in the networking and telecom markets easy and cost-effective through the http://www.openenealinux.org site, which gathers everything needed to download, deploy and customise an open version of Enea Linux. When customers move to the product development phase they have the options to continue with the open version or acquire the fully supported commercial version based on the same code base they used in the prototype phase.

With the objective of further reducing development costs and time-to-market, Enea Linux can be complemented with the Enea Element middleware, a software framework that provides high availability (HA) and on-device management functionality to quickly develop carrier grade network applications.

"The AMD Embedded R-Series SoC processor is a compelling and highly competent hardware solution in the NFV space. Together with AMD, we ensure that we have the perfect software platform in place for anyone implementing network function and connected end-point devices," said Daniel Forsgren, SVP Product Management, Enea.

Based on the ARM Cortex-A57 architecture, the upcoming AMD Embedded R-Series SoC processor, Hierofalcon, is the first 64bit ARM-based platform from AMD, designed for communications and networking infrastructure including network function virtualisation (NFV).
