Networking : Project overview#

The Networking project manages the development of protocols, protocol stacks and reference drivers that are part of the QNX® Neutrino® Realtime Operating System. The project includes a newly developed IP stack, associated utilities and applications. As compared to the currently shipping version of the stack (io-net), this stack (io-pkt) provides:

  • Close adherence to the NetBSD architecture / code base ( currently NetBSD 4.0)
    • Eases porting of newer stack releases / features
    • Similar driver model / API allows easy porting (using a porting library) of existing NetBSD drivers to io-pkt
  • 802.11 framework for full WiFi support
    • Adhoc
    • Infrastructure client
    • Infrastructure access point (where hardware allows)
  • Faster receive performance due to an optimized threading model
