Wind River® delivers the technology and expertise that not only enables the deployment of safe, secure, and reliable intelligent systems, but also harnesses the intelligence in those systems to drive innovation and business transformation.
Wind River has been pioneering ways to make machines intelligent for more than 30 years. We're now using that experience to help companies across industries and around the world harness the data generated by those machines for transformative improvements.
The benefits of intelligent, connected devices are clear. Gaining greater insight into and control of these machines offers nearly unlimited ways for businesses and society to benefit.
But to take advantage of these revolutionary opportunities, businesses can no longer protect devices by simply isolating them from the greater world of the Internet.
Building safe and secure systems is the hallmark of Wind River. For the past 30 years we've been ensuring that safety-critical systems, for everything from industrial plants and electrical substations to jet airliners and commuter trains, absolutely work without fail.
We're now harnessing our decades of field experience to deploy advanced technologies such as software agents and microkernels to more fully integrate our ultra-reliable operating systems into the Internet of Things.
No one knows embedded devices better than Wind River. We're now applying our knowledge to help translate and manage machine data for travel across networks and into cloud systems.
Intelligent devices and systems are nothing new. They've been used in the manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, healthcare, transportation, and other industries for decades.
The challenge for IoT is that many of these devices are not connected to the Internet and are cloistered in specialized systems with unique communications protocols.
Because of our expert understanding of intelligent machines and systems, we are uniquely qualified to help manage diverse devices and translate all kinds of data for travel across networks and into analytical cloud systems, where businesses and other organizations can gain insights for operational efficiencies and transformative improvements.
Wind River leads the industry in building real-time operating systems that perform without delays or failure. We're now bringing our expertise to help networks support IoT with seamless connectivity and flawless reliability.
"Good enough" is not good enough for the Internet of Things. The best-effort networks of today will need to provide fail-safe connectivity to run the devices, machines, and systems powering the critical digital infrastructure that businesses and society will depend on.
At the same time, all kinds of networks will need to be far more flexible and adaptable to keep up with the often unpredictable and dynamic demands of the real world.
As with embedded devices at the edge of the network, networking devices themselves need far greater intelligence, flexibility, and reliability to evolve communications infrastructures to support the highly dynamic needs of sensors and devices that are connecting the physical and digital worlds.
Wind River technologies are used by virtually every networking equipment maker in the industry. We are now tapping this experience and harnessing our knowledge of extremely reliable real-time operating systems to build networks with "six nines" (99.9999%) always-on reliability and peerless high performance.
Wind River has been helping top companies from across industries and around the globe harness critical information from their embedded devices. We are now using our experience to build better ways to create embedded clouds.
Clouds hold the key to extracting insights, operational improvements, and transformative advancement from the Internet of Things. They provide the necessary on-demand, immensely expandable computing capacity necessary for storing, processing, and analyzing the rapidly increasing streams of data flowing from the physical and digital worlds.
But cloud computing systems face significant security and performance challenges for supporting the real-time and safety-critical needs of many industrial, transportation, medical, and public infrastructure systems.
The embedded cloud brings the performance, security, real-time management, and analytical capabilities necessary for extracting, combining, and analyzing device information to support real-time decisions and systems controls.
The Internet of Things is the ultimate system of systems. Using physical hardware to test such an interconnection of devices, gateways, networks, and cloud computing environments is daunting, if not impossible.
Enter Wind River Simics®.
IoT poses an extreme design challenge for software engineers: vast complexity, byzantine interconnections, and extensive systems residing outside of controlled IT environments. Failure or degraded performance of any one part will hamper this network of networks from delivering its full potential.
Simics simulates devices and systems—from the smallest to the most complex—so you can adopt new development techniques that are simply not possible with physical hardware.
Simics frees software and hardware teams to explore new approaches to building pioneering technologies, products, and systems for harnessing IoT.
