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.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessio...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
While the focus and objectives of IoT initiatives are many and diverse, they all share a few common attributes, and one of those is the network. Commonly, that network includes the Internet, over which there isn't any real control for performance and availability. Or is there? The current state of the art for Big Data analytics, as applied to network telemetry, offers new opportunities for improving and assuring operational integrity. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Frey, Vice President of S...
