By Anamika Singh, TMCnet Contributing Editor



Xelerated, a provider of Carrier Ethernet ASSP-based chipsets, and Dune Networks (News - Alert), a provider of networking devices for Metro Ethernet, Enterprise and Data Center platforms, announced that Xelerated's HX300 family of network processors interoperates via SPAUI interface with PETRA-line devices of traffic management and fabric access devices from Dune.
 
The companies also made an announcement of their joint commitment to provide interoperability and high-speed designs.
 
SPAUI is an interface based on the XAUI industry standard. This interface will allow Xelerated’s HX300 family to interoperate with traffic management and switching fabric solutions from Dune. SPAUI is suited for dense 10GE Ethernet solutions because it incorporates extensions for providing 10Gbps applications with speedup for packet headers, full rate 12GE, channelization, packet interleaving, and refined flow control.
 
"With the combination of the PETRA and HX300 products, Dune and Xelerated have set the industry standard for integration and scalability in Carrier Ethernet designs," stated Bob Wheeler, senior analyst at The Linley Group. "This solution offers both new and existing customers a path to dense GE/10GE line cards as well as 40GE and 100GE solutions."
 
The Carrier Ethernet solution gives good system portioning, also good cost and integration levels. Xelerated's X10 and X11 and Dune's FAP10/20V, FAP11/21V, the new generation of seamless devices interoperability provide innovation in Carrier Ethernet, with both cost and features.
 
Thomas Eklund, vice president of marketing and business development at Xelerated, stated "We have an extremely successful partnership with Dune. Dune dominates the switching fabric and system-wide traffic-management market and together we continue to lead the market in performance and integration." "The flexible, yet deterministic, dataflow processing of the HX300 devices, combined with the scalability and performance of the P220/230 solution, gives our customers access to an innovative platform for carrier-grade solutions."
 
Michal Kahan, Dune Networks' vice president of international sales and product marketing , added, "Dune is happy to continue building the successful partnership with Xelerated that has garnered an impressive customer base. Using Xelerated's HX300 and Dune's P230 Carrier Ethernet line cards with wire-speed performance and full traffic management of up to 240Gbp is now enabled." "Our SPAUI collaboration enables the technology leap required for 10GE ubiquity."
 
Xelerated is a company for ASSP-based Carrier Ethernet chipsets. It has offices in Santa Clara, Stockholm, Tel Aviv and Beijing.
