OC Systems and Wind River Partner to Deliver Sensor Point
Technology and Services for Deployed Devices in New Wind River Management
Suite; Dynamic Sensor Points Provide an Essential Part of Wind River's
Root-Cause Analysis System
OC Systems to provide Sensor Point development
Sensor Point SureStart, Sensor Point RapidResponse and Custom Sensor Point
Fairfax, VA, May 17, 2006OC Systems, Inc. today announced
a partnership with Wind River, the global leader in Device Software
Optimization (DSO) to deliver development services centered around the Wind
River Management Suite, also announced today. The Wind River Management
Suite, which includes the Wind River Field Diagnostics and Wind River
Workbench Diagnostics, uses advanced instrumentation technology called
Sensor Points to enhance root-cause analysis, allowing developers to more
effectively record, isolate, diagnose, debug and correct device faults in
deployed devices, leading to faster development of higher quality device
"We are excited about partnering with Wind River to bring
Sensor Point development services to the device software market," said
Oliver Cole, president, OC Systems. "With the introduction of Sensor Point
technology, Wind River now has the most powerful diagnostic tools for
deployed devices on the market today."
Sensor Points dynamically instrument deployed applications
using a non-invasive process that requires no application source code
modification or application recompiles, hardware ROM flashes, or target
OC Systems has joined Wind River's partner program and will
be offering services to help Wind River's customers build libraries of
Sensor Points and use Sensor Points more effectively.
"As experts in the area of software instrumentation, OC
Systems maintains the highest level of proficiency with Sensor Points," said Naren Nachiappan, vice president, Wind River.
"We are pleased OC Systems will
offer their services to Wind River customers. OC Systems Sensor Point
development services will enable customers to be more successful with the
Wind River Management Suite."
OC Systems is offering three new services to users of the
Wind River Management Suite: Sensor Point SureStart, Sensor Point
RapidResponse and Custom Sensor Point Development.
Sensor Point SureStart
OC Systems consultants analyze the customer's system, determine what Sensor
Points are needed and create a detailed project plan for development and
delivery. Milestones, sensor point specifications, working practices and an
engineer training schedule are mapped out as part of the plan. The
consultants develop the necessary sensor points and return to install,
implement and train the engineering team.
Sensor Point RapidResponse
When software development reaches a crisis state, OC Systems consultants
join the customer's team to resolve the problems quickly. The consultants
will arrive with a set of Sensor Points to help quickly diagnose problems
such as memory leaks, corruption, dead locks, priority inversions and
transaction contention. The Sensor Points are then customized for the
Custom Sensor Point Development
OC System engineers work with the customer's engineering team to determine
what information is needed and develop sensor points to collect this data.
Sensor Point services are available for the Wind River VxWorks and Linux
