Global IP traffic will increase 3 fold in the next 5 years and will reach 1.4 zettabytes (equivalent to 350 Billion DVDs) by 2017, according to the Cisco Visual Networking Index, 2012-2017. The rising volume of networked devices combined with new high bandwidth access technologies such as 802.11ac, LTE and FTTH, is driving the need for higher performance at every node in the network from broadband access to the enterprise to the core. The CN70XX and CN71XX families addresses this need in a broad range of applications including Wired and Wireless Gateways, 802.11ac access points, Switches, Routers, UTM/Security Appliances, Network Attached Storage and more.

Cavium's new OCTEON III single, dual and quad-core SoCs deliver an unprecedented amount of compute performance per chip enabling superb throughput and headroom to handle a broad range of applications. The new CN70xx and CN71xx families are available in a small foot print plastic LBGA package and are targeted for low power and low cost applications. The CN70XX and CN71XX are entry level members of the OCTEON III family which will provide the industry's widest line of multi core processors supporting up to 48 cores at core frequencies up to 2.5GHz. The new members of the OCTEON III family support full hardware virtualization that allows applications to be 'firewalled' from each other, legacy and newer operating systems to run concurrently and also enables live in-service upgrades. The broad range of connectivity options includes GbE, 10GbE XAUI, SATA 3.0, USB 3.0 and PCIe controllers.
