"Telecommunications equipment maker L.M. Ericsson Telephone is putting its weight behind an effort to develop a version of Linux tuned
for high-octane servers used by network carriers.
Teaming with a list of software and hardware vendors including Hewlett-Packard Co. and Red Hat Inc., Ericsson will assist in designing a set of
specifications for the open-source operating system that would enable it to power servers used by companies in the telecommunications sector, such as
those used to deliver voice and data over land and wireless networks."
