Linux Heads to the CO

Based on today’s announcement, Stratus customers will soon be able to choose 64-bit RHEL AS 4 on three new T Series server models: the T40 CO, T40 AC, and the T65 AC. The T40 CO is a carrier-grade server engineered to meet NEBS Level 3 standards in central office environments. This server is based on two-way SMP 3.2GHz Xeon processors. The T40 AC and T65 AC servers are non-NEBS models described as being suitable for “next generation services” or “enterprise telephony applications.” The T65 uses dual-core Xeon 2.8GHz processors.

HP is also installing a version of Debian in its carrier grade telecomm devices.  Seems Linux is making some real headway into this market.
