Welcome to my (empty) Blog :)

I have moved all of my old blog posts to the Archive section.
At one point I will add more information to the main page.


Info - Vendors and the Operating Systems used

All switches and routers are using an Operating System to perform their operations. Some vendors have created their own OS, other are using an already existing OS and modify it to their needs. Here is a list of vendors, their Operating System and on which OS it is built on (if any):

IOS is in-house developed
IOS-XR is based on QNX (used only on Cisco 12000 series, CRS-1 Core Router and Catalyst 6500)

Extreme Networks:
EXOS is based on Linux
ExtremeWare not disclosed

FTOS is based on NetBSD


IronWare is in-house developed


JunOS is based on FreeBSD

Please don't hesitate to send me an e-mail at blog@daxy.net if you have other or more information.
