The Linaro Networking Group (LNG) is an autonomous segment focused group that is responsible for engineering development in the networking space. Some activities of this group, after discussion and agreement with Linaro’s central Technical Steering Committee (TSC) may be of shared interest with other segments and conducted by another working group, e.g. much virtualization work is of interest to mobile, servers and networking and is conducted by the Virtualization working group. The LNG engineering team is divided into three groups: Foundational, Big Endian and OpenDataPlane. The current mix of LNG engineering activities includes:

  • Virtualization support with considerations for real-time performance, I/O optimization, robustness and heterogeneous operating environments on multi-core SoCs.

  • Real-time operations and the Linux kernel optimizations for the control and data plane

  • Packet processing optimizations that maximize performance and minimize latency in data flows through the network.

  • Dealing with legacy software and mixed-endian issues prevalent in the networking space

  • Power Management

  • Data Plane Programming API:
