HUNTSVILLE, Ala. Abaco Systems announced a new version of the network management software OpenWare V6.4. The updates in version 6.4 provide new features including innovations allowing for a flexible SFP pluggable transceiver configuration support for the GBX25 6U VME managed Ethernet switch.

The upgrades will also offer NAND-less booting capabilities for the GBX25, SWE440A, and SWE540A intended to allow for greater security and faster startup times. Abaco's new approach with OpenWare 6.4 will also aim to deliver vital upgrades in both flexibility and security across the company's range of NETernity layer 2/3 Ethernet switches.

According to the company, the approach is designed so that the end user has control over configuration of the GBX25 to provide opportunity for swaps between basebands or quantities and to remove fixed configurations unless required. 

The company claims that OpenWare V6.4 is designed to work with their commercial off the shelf (COTS) products to simplify moving between form factors. The update will also aim to allow customers access to features to develop their systems and architecture, as well as improved performance and enhanced security by mitigation of the latest Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE's).
