Has anyone (particularly AXD301/ENGINE/OTP folks) read the following book?
"Robust Communications Software: Extreme Availability, Reliability
and Scalability for Carrier-Grade Systems"
by Greg Utas
Is it any good?
Extract from product summary:
Carrier-grade software must satisfy the stringent quality requirements
of network operators whose systems provide mission-critical
communications services. This book describes proven carrier-grade
software techniques used in flagship products designed by industry
leaders such as Lucent, Nortel, and Ericsson.
In the age of 24/7, software robustness is a competitive advantage.
This authoritative guide for software engineers, managers, and testers
of products that face carrier-grade requirements helps you to develop
state-of-the-art software that will give you an edge in today's
