Green Hills Software Selects Devicescape for Its Proven Wireless Security
Devicescape, the leader in Easy Wi-Fi, and the named "Gold Standard" of Wi-Fi by the Wi-Fi Alliance, today announced a partnership with Green Hills Software, the technology leader in device software optimization (DSO) and real-time operating systems (RTOS).

According to the latest quarterly report by Infonetics Research, worldwide sales of wireless LAN equipment was up 20% in 2007 from 2006, driven by the increased rollout of enterprise wireless LANs and the ubiquity of WLAN enabled mobile devices.

A wide range of devices -- gas pumps, traffic lights, industrial controls, patient monitoring equipment, and vending machines -- now connect to the Internet or private networks via Wi-Fi. With Devicescape embedded into the Green Hills Platform for Wireless Devices, developers now have a complete Wi-Fi reference platform for building electronic devices that incorporate the latest wireless LAN (WLAN) interfaces.
