"Interface Concept, the Brittany, France-based communications infrastructure enabler has selected the Hard Hat Linux operating system from MontaVista Software Inc. to run the company's new high performance LAN-WAN remote access communications server and Ethernet switches."

"Interface Concept is a highly innovative designer, manufacturer and worldwide supplier of high-performance communications boards and systems, providing both COTS (Commercial-Off-The-Shelf) and customizable solutions for a host of blue chip manufacturers of integrated voice and data transmission, and remote access and routing equipment."

"MontaVista was the only company driving fully-functional embedded Linux product solutions for our applications," said Bruno Rolland, managing director of Interface Concepts. "We were delighted by the performance improvement that Hard Hat Linux delivered in our benchmark tests, compared with the proprietary VRTX and pSOS real-time operating systems that we ran on our previous generation Ethernet switches. We achieved between a five-fold and ten-fold improvement in TCP/IP data throughput, due primarily to the collective contribution from the Open Source Community utilized in Hard Hat Linux," he added."
