QNX press release on Tridium use of QNX

Postby John Nagle » Sun Feb 06, 2005 12:37 am

QNX press release:
(http://www.qnx.com/news/pr_1261_2.html)

"OTTAWA, February 1, 2005 - QNX Software Systems today announced that
Tridium Inc., a leader in software for realtime control applications,
has standardized on the QNX® Neutrino® RTOS and QNX Momentics®
development suite for its flagship NiagaraAX Framework platform. QNX
Neutrino will be the sole operating system to power the company's full
product line, including the JACE embedded controllers and Niagara OEM
runtimes."

Note the phrase "sole operating system".

Now let's see what Tridium has to say about this:
(http://www.tridium.com/products/niagara.asp)

"Platform and Operating System Neutral
The Framework operates on a wide variety of hardware platforms from
low-cost controllers to high-end server workstations, NT servers, PC's,
TridiumTM JACE controllers and other other Java-enabled platforms. And,
the architecture supports a wide range of operating systems. Critical
real-time applications run on Wind River's VxWorks RTOS (Real-Time
Operating System), Insignia's Jeode or QNX, while robust server
applications run on operating systems such as Microsoft® Windows NT®, or
LinuxTM."

Hi John,

in Europe nobody takes American press releases literally ... !!!
It's amazing that you as US guy tries to do it ;-)

OTOH, hardware vendors want to sell their hardware, why should they fix
themselves on a sole OS ???

Nowadays, even software companies offering 3rd party products can't
choose QNX as sole OS as QSSL stupidly likes to reduce their focus on
embedded systems ... probably not being aware about their advantages
against RTOS competitors in the industrial automation market e.g.

Cheers,
Jutta

Well ... in that area we know only 'leaders' ... even if they don't have
nothing to do with 'realtime control applications' :)

Jace (HW) + Neutrino + Java-VM + NiagaraAX + WEB access and on top a
'RT' application couldn't be a realistic base for 'real-time' control :)

The main issue of NiagaraAX is remote control ...

Note the phrase "sole operating system".

It's normal that the marketing of QSSL doesn't know what they are
talking about. They don't know theire own product and market segments
and they don't know theire competitors.

An other arkward performance is the statement:

"... and QNX is thrilled to be chosen to power the company's (JVC) new
DVD receiver and monitor," said Dan Dodge, chief executive officer of
QNX Software Systems."

That means that QSSL is realy 'thrilled' about that a member of the
Harman group is using theire own 'inhouse RTOS' ??

Great marketing success :)

I think you're confusing JVC with JBL.

Great marketing success :)
