Realtime operating system interface for communications systems; IROS

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In November 1991, NTT released its IROS (Interface for realtime operating systems) specifications, intended for common application to communication systems requiring realtime processing. Sofware is today assuming an increasingly vital role as foundation technology that enables networks to provide the diverse, high-level services described in the 'VI&P' service vision. If we are to offer quality service quickly and at low cost, we must establish a software architecture that promotes efficient software development and use. IROS is an OS interface specification designed to assure application portability and interoperability.
