Please explain. I could take that as

Public Domain, in which case no license is required
Closed source (proprietary), in which case the terms are specified by
copyright (you as the sold copyright holder, if you give/sell me a copy,
I can use that copy with the limitations and possibilities of copyright,
so no license is necessarily required).

Who owns the copyright? Radisys? 

You ported it, and you own the copyright to any changes you made, but
what is the story on the original source?
