Green Hills Software Announces Networking Solutions Center

State-of-the-Art Facility Supports Green Hills Software's Rapid Expansion in Networking and Telecommunications

EMBEDDED SYSTEMS CONFERENCE, BOSTON, MA — September 22, 2009 — Green Hills Software, Inc., the largest independent vendor of embedded software solutions, today announced its Networking Solutions Center, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Solutions Center is staffed by a team of engineering veterans dedicated to advancing network protocol technology, industry protocol collaboration, and network security.

The Solutions Center is led by Susan Hares, director of networking solutions for Green Hills Software. With more than 25 years of experience, Hares is recognized as one of the world’s foremost experts in routing and networking technology. She was a member of the original NSFNet project that started the modern Internet, co-chairs the IETF inter-domain routing group, and is active in numerous other networking standards efforts relating to Cloud Computing, secure BGP, Shortest Path Provider Backbone Bridging (SPPBB), and wireless security.

“With 15 billion network connected devices expected by 2015, Green Hills understands the importance of providing secure, reliable communications,” commented Sue Hares. “While the networking industry has seen staff and budget cuts during the current recession – including the exit of Wind River and its WindNet products from the general market – Green Hills Software has aggressively grown its strategic networking investment to address these challenges."

Networking technology is no longer constrained to switches, routers, and other networking equipment. The importance of secure and reliable communications is also critical to mobile devices, software defined radio, smart metering, process control, and medical devices – practically all manner of electronic systems. By combining the proven security of the INTEGRITY® operating system with the suite of networking products from the Ann Arbor Networking Solutions Center, Green Hills Software is the premier provider of complete platform solutions for embedded connected devices.

Green Hills Software’s Networking Solutions Center develops the Layer 2 switching and Layer 3 routing solution, GateD®, the Internet’s leading network traffic management software for the past two decades. In addition, the Center offers a comprehensive suite of expert services, including design consulting, product integration, validation and verification, and technical support. GateD is a key component of Green Hills Software’s Platform for Secure Networking. Learn more about the Green Hills GateD product line at
