Ericsson Launches a Network Processor

Ericsson announced "..two key developments that reinforce its commitment to developing 4th Generation IP networks: a powerful in-house ASIC, the Ericsson SNP 4000 network processing chipset, and extension of the Ericsson IP Operating System as the common platform across the entire IP portfolio".
"The Ericsson SNP 4000 brings to the market industry-leading packet processing capacity with an ASIC solution that integrates thousands of processing cores to enable products that can scale from 100Gbps to 1Tbps and applications that support millions of subscribers. With its innovative hyper-threaded run to completion architecture running the Linux OS with full support for GNU based C/C++ tool chain, the SNP 4000 will herald a new era of feature velocity and power efficiency in IP products".

Jan Häglund (pictured), VP, Head of IP and Broadband Networks, Ericsson, says: ".. A common operating system and high-touch packet processing capabilities are incremental steps towards the broader Service Provider SDN architecture that will be a key enabling technology for 4GIP going forward. SNP 4000 sets a new benchmark as it increases the feature velocity by ten times and is twice as energy efficient as available network processors".
