Mellanox delivers next generation network processor to key telco customers

1 Mar 2016 Sunnyvale, Yokneam - Mellanox Technologies Ltd.'s next generation network processor, the NPS-400, is now sampling and has been shipped to strategic customers. In addition, ZTE has selected NPS-400 for its new line cards design for carrier-grade router platforms. The NPS-400 is the most advanced network processor available today, capable of performing advanced deep packet processing for security and telecommunications applications at over 800Gb/s.

"ZTE is pleased to have received its first NPS units and is looking forward to bringing to market its upgraded line card built around the NPS-400 technology", stated Mr. Lu Xianjun, the chief engineer at ZTE. "The NPS-400 enables us to provide higher capacity packet processing as well an extended feature set to our customers."

"We are pleased that the NPS network processing unit is now available and shipping to communication technology leaders such as ZTE", stated Marc Sultzbaugh, senior vice president, Mellanox Technologies. "Through the acquisition of EZchip we've gained tremendous expertise and advanced network processing capabilities. The NPS is a sixth generation network processor and has evolved to provide unmatched performance and flexibility that meets the needs of the most advanced data center and communications customers."

The NPS is architected to address the next generation of smart high-performance carrier and data centre networks. It provides outstanding packet processing flexibility through C‑based programming, a standard toolset, support of the Linux operating system, large code space, and a run-to-completion or pipeline programming style. A comprehensive library provides source code for a variety of applications to speed customer's design cycle.

The NPS features programmable CPU cores that are highly optimized for packet processing and leverage deep packet processing and applications experience, a market-proven traffic manager, hardware accelerators for security and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) tailored for efficiency and performance, on-chip search engines including TCAM with scaling through algorithmic extension to external low-cost low-power DRAM memory and a multitude of network interfaces providing an aggregated bandwidth of 800-Gigabits per second including 10-, 40- and 100-Gigabit Ethernet, Interlaken and PCI Express interfaces.
