RadiSys (News - Alert) Corporation, a provider of hardware and software platforms for next generation IP-based wireless, wireline and video networks, has launched the Promentum ATCA-7240 based on Cavium Networks (News - Alert) Octeon family of multi-core processors.

ATCA-7240 is based on two powerful Octeon II CN68XX processors, each with 32 cnMIPS64 cores and comprehensive hardware acceleration for demanding packet processing, security and deep packet inspection applications with or without I/O, according to company officials.

“The flexibility, programmability and performance provided by the Promentum ATCA-7240 are unmatched in the industry,” said Venkataraman Prasannan, ATCA general manager of RadiSys, in a statement.

“We provide Telecom Equipment Manufacturers and their service provider customers the best-of-breed solutions that they require to meet the unique time, cost, scalability and performance requirements of their 40G network deployments,” Prasannan added.

Promentum ATCA-7240 is a full-duplex 40G packet processing module. It provides a complete line-rate solution for applications such as Serving Gateways (SGW), Session Border Control (SBC), Security Gateways, Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), Edge Routers, Media Gateways and Mobility Management Entity (MME) network elements found in the 4G LTE (News - Alert) Evolved Packet Core (EPC).

Featuring the Dual Octeon II CN68XX processors, the new module improves upon the field-proven advantages of the previous generation ATCA-7220 Dual OCTEON CN58XX by delivering up to 80 gigabits per second (Gbps) processing performance.

Octeon CN68XX offers a 3x total compute advantage and 2x performance-per-watt advantage. It enables a powerful, flexible solution for TEMs to meet the requirements of even the most sophisticated and bandwidth-hungry next-generation applications.

The new ATCA-7240 also offers increased memory capacity and maximum I/O density to meet industry demand for highly integrated, higher performance-per-watt solutions. It also provides a path for future scalability to next-generation networks.

“RadiSys has continually proven to be a leader in developing carrier-grade, field-proven ATCA solutions that shorten development cycles and reduce the total cost of ownership for TEMs and their customers,” said YJ Kim, general manager, Infrastructure Processor (News - Alert) Group at Cavium Networks, in a statement.

Recently RadiSys announced it will present at an industry event focused on uniting the telecommunications and information communications technology (ICT) industries to confront the challenges of security, reliability and sustainability of the network.
