Adax Debuts QuickPort Updates for the Cavium Network Processor

By Rahul Arora, TMCnet Contributor

The Cavium OCTEON\Plus network processor, which contains an unbeatable blend of Adax (News - Alert) PacketRunner (APR), an intelligent, I/O-centric ATCA carrier blade, and PacketAMC (PktAMC), is very vital for telecom developers. But to help them efficiently access and utilize that blend to develop and field successful applications, they do need something more.

The Adax QuickPort solution for the APR & PktAMC boards allows the developers to take the first step right, cut down the time-to-market for their own and customer applications and most importantly ensure great performance.

OCTEON Plus 5650 and 5645 processors for Adax applications provide many benefits to Adax PacketRunner and PacketAMC. All these benefits are available to the general marketplace with a rapid software development/porting suite. QuickPort, the newly build solution by Adax puts the power of multi-core processing at the command of application developers and systems integrators.

Cavium SDK has been modified and enhanced by ADAX with kernel libraries and configuration options, available with Netboot, CF or MicroSD boot options that get the system booted and operational as fast as possible. The kernel libraies and configuration options are optimized to provide a pre-built platform that jump-starts development and testing of telecom applications.

Adax QuickPort, which has a Quick setup of a rich Cavium development environment, offers a friendly application development environment that allows developers to completely bypass building a kernel and root file system, enabling them to easily test pre-installed Adax software such as HDC3, Linux Streams (LiS) and ATM4 board drivers to start without a delay. 

“Adax prides itself on developing and delivering high-performance telecom products. We have invested scores of man-years into multi-core, multi-threaded kernel-level driver development. QuickPort embodies this investment and applies it to our state-of-the-art Cavium based products” said Dr. Barry Zuckerman, President of Adax, Inc., in a statement.

 “QuickPort opens a new era for Adax, offering our core expertise directly to our customers. We are very excited about enabling rapid development and deployment to Cavium telco users.”
