Cisco unveils nPower, world's most advanced network processor


12 Sep 2013 San Jose - Cisco has unveiled the world's most scalable and programmable network processor, uniquely designed to power the Internet of Everything (IoE), as more people, processes, data and things become interconnected. With trillions of advanced "networked events" predicted to come online over the next decade, the Cisco nPower integrated network processor delivers new levels of performance and bandwidth, as well as programmable control using open APIs and advanced compute capabilities.

Backed by Cisco's rich heritage in networking silicon innovation, the nPower X1 integrated network processor - the first generation of the nPower processor family - becomes the industry's first network processor capable of scaling to multi-terabit performance levels while handling trillions of transactions. Delivering unprecedented network speed and intelligence, the nPower X1 is purpose-built for software-defined networking (SDN), enabling on-the-fly reprogramming for new levels of service agility and simplified network operation.

The nPower X1, which incorporates over 50 patents, also features the following advancements in network processing:

  • First true 400 Gigabits-per-second (Gbps) throughput from a single chip, to enable multi-terabit network performance. All packet processing, traffic management and input/output functions are integrated on a single nPower X1 and operate at high performance and scale.
  • Highest-performing programmable control designed to seamlessly handle hundreds of millions of unique transactions per second. The nPower's industry-leading processing architecture is purpose built for machine-driven events and ultra-high-definition video applications.
  • With 4 billion transistors on a single chip, the nPower X1 implementation achieves unprecedented levels of performance, functionality, programmability, and scale for a network processor.
  • Enables solutions with eight times the throughput and one quarter the power per bit compared with Cisco's previous industry-leading network processor.
