Meeting Today’s IoT Requirements
A network of millions of connected devices generates an enormous challenge of ensuring end to end communication from the edge to the cloud. MontaVista CGX IoT Linux addresses these challenges with key connectivity, scalability, reliability, and security features.  First, MontaVista CGX includes connectivity support for a comprehensive set of wired and wireless protocols. CGX also offers dynamic scalability with virtualization and containers enabling creation of isolated “sandboxes” to run Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), specialized analysis applications, and development environments for your end customer value add application.  Having the flexibility of scale while running interrupted and autonomously is becoming vital to the IoT Architeture.  MontaVista CGX is built with Carrier Grade features, allowing devices to remain continuously in an operational state, even during situations where the environment is compromised.  Finally, delivering end to end connectivity that is secure and trusted is critical to IoT deployment.  CGX incorporates security features like CVE updates, ASLR, Tripwire, TPM (x86), ARM TrustZone®, Integrity Management, Secure Boot, and SELinux among others.

“While IoT is about connecting anything and everything, the most important component of the value chain is the new network required to support a variety of wireless and cellular solutions ranging from Zigbee to 5G in a scalable and secure fashion,” according to Jim McGregor, Principal Analyst at TIRIAS Research.  “With CGX IoT, MontaVista brings the expertise of the core network to customizable gateways at the edge.”

Starting CGX 2.0, the IoT profile is available on select platforms.
