Lilee Systems, provider of communication systems designed exclusively for the railroad industry, has achieved Red Hat Hardware Certification for the company's WMS-2000 wayside messaging server, making it the first wayside messaging server with internal 3G, GPS and IP KVM options to achieve Red Hat certification. Now, Lilee says customers deploying WMS-2000 with embedded Red Hat Enterprise Linux are offered proven performance and reliability.
The WMS-2000 product family provides railroads with a range of wayside messaging server options, from standardized WMS solutions to full-featured platforms with options for internal 3G, GPS, IP-KVM switch and IP routing capabilities. The Red Hat certification complements Lilee Systems’ progressive technology with the Positive Train Control architecture being defined by Interoperable Train Control committees. The WMS-2000 product family also supports Lilee Systems’ TransAir, a mobile-IP based 220 MHz software defined radio system. In addition to being certified with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the solution also incorporates Red Hat Enterprise MRG Messaging technologies to optimize throughput for its messaging workloads.
“Earning certification from a company such as Red Hat that built its success on providing interoperability of open source software and related systems is a significant tribute to the feature set we have built into our product family,” said Jia-ru Li, CEO, Lilee Systems. “We are continuing to collaborate closely with our customers on the evolution of the standards required by the rail industry as they implement Positive Train Control systems.”
Red Hat launched the Red Hat Hardware Certification program in 1999. Working with its hardware partners, Red Hat certified hardware solutions give customers the assurance that their hardware platforms have been tested and are compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating systems. Red Hat has certified thousands of systems from hardware vendors worldwide.
