HP, THE SELLER OF tin and fag-free utopian ideals is flogging commodity, standards-based hardware and software, including Carrier Grade Linux, to telephone company Motorola.

In a joint press release Hotorola said that they are producing a Carrier Grade Linux system, radio signalling controller software, and a 64-bit servers that run on Intel's now rightly famous Itanium processors.

Carrier Grade Linux has frequently been cited has the best thing since sliced bread to hit carriers which have had to put up with expensive proprietary designs for ages.

Motorola will be integrating the HP package into its iDEN network infrastructure products. It would also use HP's cx2600 64-bit rack-mount server, in conjunction with its own middleware and applications software. The cx2600 is the carrier version of HP's departmental server the rx2600 and can handle Motorola's CDMA radio access network equipment. µ
