SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At its annual Accelerating Innovation Summit (AIS), LSI Corporation (Nasdaq:LSI) today announced its Axxia(R) 4500 product family of communication processors is now being delivered to leading key OEM customers. Axxia 4500 is LSI's first ARM technology-based communication processor family that is designed for challenging enterprise and datacenter networking applications such as evolving application aware networking.
The LSI Axxia 4500 features a new StreamSight(TM) next-generation Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) engine that provides improved Software-Defined Networks (SDN) controller traffic inspection, efficiency of network management, QoS, security and other network functions. StreamSight efficiently examines data streams and extracts vital information from the data, enabling the application layer to make effective policy decisions.
By combining LSI Ethernet switches, networking accelerators and Virtual Pipeline(TM) technology with power-efficient ARM cores, the new Axxia 4500 family of processors is specifically designed to address the performance challenges facing next-generation networks. Customers using the Axxia 4500 are able to solve the control plane scalability challenges of SDN and extract the necessary information required to enable Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) implementations without burdening the server processor.
"With so much content and so many applications residing in the cloud, the need to manage network traffic both more efficiently and securely is increasingly important," said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Networking Solutions Group, LSI. "The Axxia 4500 communication processor family, with its combination of intelligence and acceleration, delivers the high performance necessary for efficient SDN implementations."
The Axxia 4500 processor family includes LSI field-proven acceleration engines that incorporate decades of communications solutions expertise. The new processors include up to four ARM Cortex(TM)-A15 cores with a CoreLink(TM) CCN-504 coherent, QoS aware interconnect in 28nm process technology. The addition of LSI Virtual Pipeline technology allows equipment developers to reconfigure the processors for optimal performance on a packet-by-packet basis. The Axxia 4500 processors also include up to 100Gb/s of L2 switching function to reduce board space and bill of material costs.
"As Software-Defined Networks continue to evolve, solutions like the LSI Axxia 4500 communication processor family will provide the flexible performance required in this unique application environment," said Linley Gwennap, principal analyst, The Linley Group. "With the Axxia 4500 processors currently shipping, LSI has established a leadership position in ARM-based multicore SoCs for networking equipment."
