RadiSys announced ".. the PromentumTM ATCA-7240, the third-generation of products based on the Cavium Networks® (NASDAQ: CAVM) OCTEON® family of multi-core processors. The versatile full-duplex 40G packet processing module provides a complete line-rate solution for applications such as Serving Gateways (SGW), Session Border Control (SBC), Security Gateways, Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), Edge Routers, Media Gateways and Mobility Management Entity (MME) network elements found in the 4G LTE Evolved Packet Core (EPC)"
The news come days after the company announced the acquisition of Continuous Computing (here), a vendor of similar blades (see "Continuous Computing 200Gbps DPI Platform" - here).
"The ATCA-7240 with Dual OCTEON II CN68XX processors improves upon the field-proven advantages of the previous generation ATCA-7220(picture) Dual OCTEON CN58XX by delivering up to 80 gigabits per second (Gbps) processing performance, increased memory capacity and maximum I/O density to meet industry demand for highly integrated, higher performance-per-watt solutions and provides a path for future scalability to next-generation networks. The ATCA-7240 is based on two powerful OCTEON II CN68XX processors, each with 32 cnMIPS64 cores and comprehensive hardware acceleration for demanding packet processing, security and deep packet inspection applications with or without I/O"
