See "Emerson Network Power Announces Availability of Powerful 64-core Cavium Dual OCTEON II 40G ATCA Packet Processor Blade" - here.
" the ATCA-9405 provides for direct Ethernet cable terminations of up to 82Gbps via a rear transition module (RTM) giving a total maximum throughput of 328Gbps. To help manage this, the blade’s dual-core Freescale QorIQ P2020 processor implements sophisticated Ethernet switch management as well as local management functions. Free of such system management overhead, the OCTEON II processors can be dedicated solely to packet processing. "
