Crossbeam Systems Uses EZchip's Network Processors for its X-Series Next Generation Security Platform

EZchip Technologies Ltd. (a LanOptics Ltd. company, NASDAQ:EZCH), a fabless semiconductor company providing Ethernet network processors, today announced that Crossbeam Systems, the leading provider of next-generation security platforms for high-performance networks, is using EZchip’s NP-2 network processors in the Network Processor Modules (NPM) of the Crossbeam X-Series Next Generation Security Platform product family. The Crossbeam NPMs utilizing the EZchip NP-2 are already shipping to customers.

“We evaluated the available network processor silicon vendors and selected EZchip’s NP-2 because of its IP network focus, true 10Gbps bi-directional performance and single chip implementation,” said Chet Gapinski, Crossbeam’s Vice President of Engineering. “We are impressed with the capabilities of NP-2, enabling us to deliver true 10Gbps performance in our next-generation Network Processing Modules. Additionally, we are confident that EZchip has the technology and track record to execute their road map to 20Gbps and beyond.”

“Crossbeam’s highly successful X-Series line of security platforms is already deployed in many enterprises, carrier networks and data centers worldwide, and EZchip is privileged that Crossbeam has opted to leverage EZchip’s network processors for providing switching and load-balancing services in this system,” said Kosta Sidopoulos, EZchip’s Sales Director. “We look forward to continue working with Crossbeam to support its requirements for a best-in-class, high-performance platform that will meet the next-generation security needs of its customers.”

EZchip’s network processors (NPU) provide networking equipment vendors with flexible packet processing and integrate the key functions needed for delivering triple-play services across packet-based networks and for enabling Carrier Ethernet networks. EZchip’s NPU highlights include:

  • NP-2, NP-3 and NP-4 family of high-speed NPUs, providing throughput of 20Gbps, 30Gbps and 100Gbps respectively.
  • NPA family of access NPUs, providing throughput of up to 10Gbps with several chip models featuring multiple 10-Gigabit, 1-Gigabit and 100-Megabit Ethernet ports.
  • Exceptionally flexible packet processing enabling system designers to future proof their designs while delivering a variety of applications such as L2 switching, Q-in-Q, PBT, VPLS, MPLS and IPv4/IPv6 routing.
  • Integrated hierarchical traffic management enabling granular bandwidth control, assigns individual flows with specific Quality of Service (QoS) and enforces Service Level Agreements (SLA) for applications, services and users.
  • On-chip Operations, Administration and Management (OAM) processing offload enabling reliability and high availability in Carrier Ethernet networks.
  • Software compatibility across all of EZchip’s NPU families enabling efficient use of vendor’s engineering resources.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
