At INTEROP 2012, Cavium and its PACE partners are demonstrating high performance solutions for secure cloud, enterprise, networking, data center, 3G/4G wireless infrastructure and network security equipment.
According to a press release, these solutions are based upon Cavium's OCTEON, OCTEON Fusion, and NITROX processors, adapters and TurboDPI software.
Cavium’s OCTEON is a multi-core processor providing industry-leading performance and power-efficient scalability with 1 to 48 custom cnMIPS cores on a single chip along with the most advanced networking, security and application acceleration. Hardware acceleration of QoS, packet processing, TCP, IPsec, RSA (News - Alert), and Deep Packet Inspection allow the family to deliver unmatched scalability, performance and integration for enterprise, data center and cloud infrastructure.
OCTEON processors have been designed into many market-leading platforms worldwide across all major networking OEMs. With a combination of MIPS64 and multi-protocol baseband cores, OCTEON Fusion processor line extends OCTEON's unmatched processing into fully integrated radio access device. It provides optimized DSP's and extensive hardware accelerator blocks layer including Turbo, Viterbi, FFT/IFFT, and Digital Front End (DFE). Solutions for security applications based on NITROX PX and NITROX III can run at up to 40Gbps/200K RSA Ops/sec in a single chip.
Based on patent pending Search Technology, the NEURON Search processor offers high performance and low power L2-L4 network search for companies and service provider infrastructure equipment.
Capable of handling Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware, Intrusion (News - Alert) Prevention (IPS), Application Recognition and URL filtering tasks, Cavium's HFA (Hyper Finite Automata) DPI hardware solution is available in their OCTEON processors. The NITROX XL CN16XX-NFBE HSM delivers fast FIPS 140-2 L3 performance at 45,000 RSA Ops/Sec and up to 5 Gb/s in bulk throughput.
The OCTEON family of Intelligent Network Adapters offloads an extensive range of secure network services and supports Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet Network Interfaces.
