The industry's most flexible network management software.
A Common Platform
OpenWare is available across VME, VPX and COTS Systems switch products. All with the same look, feel and features – making it easier to use and deploy NETernity Ethernet switches across multiple platforms.
Multi-level military-grade security delivers the optimum application-dependent balance between protecting data and preventing unauthorized access on the one hand and accessibility and usability on the other.
OpenWare benefits from over 20 years of continuous development, and is field-proven in thousands of mission-critical installations around the world - even in space. At Abaco, dependability comes built-in.
In life or death situations, a switch boot time that’s measured in minutes is unacceptable. OpenWare delivers all the benefits of a fully managed switch – but with a boot time measurable in seconds.
OpenWare was developed by Abaco’s Networking Innovation Center – and those same developers stand ready to modify management / security interfaces, protocols, or anything else to meet almost any network requirement.
GNU/Linux-based architecture blends open source network switching and routing with Abaco’s experience and expertise in advanced network management to deliver the best of both worlds.
Based on industry standard layer 2/3 network protocols, management and security technology, OpenWare-based switches are compatible with existing network infrastructures for maximum deployability.
Introduction to Ethernet Switch Management with OpenWare
Ethernet Switches come in many different guises, and fulfill many different roles. But, apart from very simple plug-n-play devices, they all require some management software to configure and control them.
In this article for Military Embedded Systems, Charlotte Adams looks at developments in Ethernet switches. Often taken for granted, they can, she points out, deliver a range of functionalities that add real value to a platform.
In choosing a subsystem, it’s too easy to focus only on its processing performance. But what about getting the data to and from the processor? Getting data to where it’s needed is easily overlooked, as Charlotte Adams explains in this article for Military Embedded Systems.
