NetLogic Microsystems And EZchip Collaborate To Deliver High-Performance Packet Processing Solutions For Terabit Class Systems

NetLogic Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:NETL), a worldwide leader in high-performance intelligent semiconductor solutions for next-generation Internet networks, and EZchip Semiconductor Ltd. (NASDAQ:EZCH), a leader in Ethernet network processors, today announced that the companies are collaborating to deliver the industry’s highest performance, merchant, packet-processing solutions for IPv6-ready Terabit class systems. By optimizing and implementing exclusive operational modes in both EZchip’s NP-4 100Gbps network processor (NPU) and NetLogic Microsystems’ NL11k knowledge-based processor, the companies are enabling customers to achieve enhanced performance and functionality when using both the processors together when compared to alternative solutions. The companies have achieved broad design success across leading Tier One OEMs adopting the 100G NP-4 NPU and the industry-leading NL11k knowledge-based processor. In addition, the companies are collaborating to further enhance the performance optimizations and tight coupling between EZchip’s next-generation NP-5 200Gbps NPU and NetLogic Microsystems’ next-generation of knowledge-based processors at the 28 nm node.

The ever-increasing demand for network bandwidth and for smarter networks is continuously driving OEMs to look for solutions that offer faster and more extensive packet processing. Additionally, the depletion of IPv4 addresses is further stressing the Internet and is forcing the migration to IPv6 Internet addresses, which require 5x the processing capability compared to IPv4 packets. Moreover, the growing requirement for deep-packet inspection throughout the network is driving an unprecedented need for knowledge-based processors with significantly higher performance and database capacity. As the respective market leaders in high-speed network processors and knowledge-based processors, EZchip and NetLogic Microsystems are raising the bar of innovation to deliver the industry’s highest performance processors and further separate themselves from the competition.

“We are excited to expand upon our long-standing collaboration with EZchip on multiple generations of our respective best-in-class products,” said Chris O’Reilly, vice president of marketing at NetLogic Microsystems. “With each successive generation, we have seen an increase in the content of EZchip’s network processors as well as our knowledge-based processors per line card offering increasing levels of performance and functionality. This trend bodes well for both our companies as customers are expected to continue to demand higher performance, more intelligence and greater functionality.”
