“Our collaboration with NetLogic Microsystems brings together the best technologies to produce solutions that enable customers to meet the challenges of ever increasing performance requirements,” said Amir Eyal, vice president of business development at EZchip. “The tight coupling between our respective chips offers our customers the most powerful packet processing solutions available.”NetLogic Microsystems offers the industry’s broadest and most innovative portfolio of high-performance knowledge-based processors that are optimized for IPv6 processing. The NL11k processor family adopts a ground-breaking architecture with 128 massively parallel knowledge-based processing engines and the advanced Sahasra® Algorithmic Engine. The Sahasra Algorithmic Engine is the result of over 10 years of intensive R&D. The unique combination of advanced technologies enables the NL11k processor to deliver 1.6 billion decisions per second (BDPS) of IPv6 classification, QoS and forwarding processing, all performed with an unprecedented level of parallelism compared to any other search processing technology while consuming less power than alternative solutions. The NL11k knowledge-based processor features a high-speed serial interface that delivers 225 Gbps of raw chip-to-chip interconnect bandwidth, representing a 340 percent increase in I/O bandwidth-per-pin to deliver an improved balance between the processing engines and the I/O performance, and thereby allowing for wider IPv6 keys to be processed at the same search rate as narrower IPv4 keys. By being manufactured in the advanced 40nm process node, the NL11k processor enables 3x higher knowledge database density over competing 65nm solutions. EZchip’s NP-4 represents breakthroughs in performance and integration to enable building the next generation of high-density switch/router line cards that feature 200-400 Gigabit-per-second (Gbps) throughput and twenty to forty 10-Gigabit ports per line card. The NP-4 has already been selected for use by many customers, including Tier-1 vendors, in a variety of applications. NP-4 highlights include 100-Gbps programmable packet processing, integrated traffic management, Operations, Administration and Management (OAM) processing offload, Synchronous Ethernet and IEEE1588v2 offload, IP reassembly, integrated serial ports with support for 1, 10, 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet, and use of DDR3 DRAM memory chips for minimizing power and cost. The NP-4 is fully software compatible with EZchip’s next generation 200-Gigabit NP-5.
This powerful 100G combined solution from NetLogic Microsystems and EZchip is available immediately. This availability is timed to capture the next wave of switch and router designs which are being upgraded to handle the new paradigm of native IPv6 processing while also addressing the huge bandwidth requirements of advanced mobile infrastructure to deal with explosion of video and data traffic over smartphones and tablets.For more information about the respective products, please contact NetLogic Microsystems at email@example.com or EZchip at firstname.lastname@example.org.
