RadiSys and Cavium Networks Team to Deliver OCTEON II Based Packet Processing

By Tim Gray, TMCnet Web Editor

RadiSys Corporation has teamed with integrated semiconductor product provider Cavium Networks (News - Alert) to deliver OCTEON II based AdvancedTCA solutions to mutual Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs), according to the companies.
After becoming one of the first outfits to deliver solutions based on Cavium’s original OCTEON Multicore MIPS64 processors, RadiSys (News - Alert) was able to implement the “smart front end” with onboard 10GE switching to enable throughput and I/O.
“Through our collaboration with Cavium on the first two generations of OCTEON, we gained invaluable experience helping customers through development and deployment,” said Anthony Ambrose, vice president and general manager of Communications Networks at RadiSys. “We will leverage that expertise to help TEMs reduce their time-to-market while improving the price and performance of their systems with OCTEON II.”
As more and more telecom equipment vendors and systems integrators turn to products made using Advanced Telecommunications Computer Architecture (ATCA)- primarily for the creation of communications system components that can be reused for a variety of applications - products are being deployed with a wide range of applications.
A provider of advanced embedded solutions for the communications networking and commercial systems markets for OEMs, systems integrators, and solution providers, The New York-based RadiSys’ ATCA and AMC products are now being deployed with a range of 3G and 4G applications ranging from Security Gateways and lawful intercept to ASN & SAE Gateways.
With this latest move, the company expects the OCTEON II to help advance its packet processing solutions with “smart front end”, in effect offering greater performance, flexibility and throughput that the market is demanding as the technology continues to evolve.

The Cavium OCTEON has become a popular pick among companies for use in a variety of ATCA and AMC products because of its low-power characteristics that are often critical in physically and thermally constrained environments, says Rajiv Khemani, vice president and general manager of Networking and Communications Division at Cavium Networks.
“RadiSys has a proven track record with strong system-level expertise and deployment experience that make them a valued Cavium PACE partner,” said Khemani. “Feedback and experience from a customer/partner like RadiSys was key in defining OCTEON II capabilities as we continue delivering cutting-edge performance for today’s and tomorrow’s network requirements.”
As TMCnet reported this week, embedded IP communications software platforms provider D2 Technologies (News - Alert) has also integrated processors from Cavium into its lineup in a bid to offer OEMs and ODMs a quicker and more effective method for developing voice/video/data equipment for the enterprise and carrier class markets.
The Santa Barbara-based company said it will now support Cavium’s OCTEON II multi-core MIPS64, which is expected to boost performance of D2’s vPort's 'softDSP' VoIP technology while streamlining the overall design.
