Lilee Systems Earns Red Hat Hardware CertificationFirst Red Hat Certified Wayside Messaging Server to Offer Internal 3G and IP KVM Switch; Options Expands Lilee Systems' Family of Interoperable Train Control Products (May 07, 2012)
SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/07/12 -- Lilee Systems, the leading provider of advanced communication systems designed exclusively for the railroad industry, today announced that it 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, 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 flexible 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 (ITC) 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 proven compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating systems. Red Hat has certified thousands of systems from hardware vendors worldwide. Utilizing Red Hat certified hardware gives customers the confidence that Red Hat and hardware manufacturers will support hardware deployed in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux environment.
The WMS-2000 series of Wayside Messaging Servers from Lilee Systems provide an interoperable communications gateway platform for Positive Train Control systems. The primary function of the WMS-2000 is to run the ITC Messaging System between local Wayside Interface Units (WIUs) and the communications network in an Interoperable Train Control architecture. It features an integrated IP router for managing seamless communications between 220 MHz WiFi, cellular, and other wired and wireless mediums. An internal 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet switch allows multiple WIUs to be interconnected at a wayside location, eliminating the need for an external switch.
Lilee Systems TransAir PTC Family
TransAir mobility products feature solutions to enable broadband communications from low mobility radios for subways to high mobility radios for high speed rail systems. As part of this product solution, the TransAir PTC family is designed based on an interoperable 220 MHz Software Defined Radio and Mobility Controller platform, enabling the wireless network transport to allow seamless roaming and persistent communication between the three primary office, wayside and locomotive networks.
