Cavium Enables Arm®v8-based Universal CPE Solutions with OCTEON TX® SoC
Scalable 2-to-24 core fully-virtualized SoCs meet next-generation market requirements
SAN JOSE, CA and TAIPEI, TAIWAN, June 4, 2018 – Cavium™, Inc., a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable secure and intelligent processing for enterprise, data center, and wired and wireless networking, today announced production availability of its highly optimized OCTEON TX Armv8 SoC products for universal/virtualized CPE applications.
The CN80XX, CN81XX, CN82XX, and CN83X product families all feature integrated hardware acceleration for packet processing, security, and multi-core scaling from 2 to 24 cores and deliver break-through performance per dollar and watt.
Increasingly, service providers are driving deployment of innovative new services at the customer premises using new distributed network architectures. The needs of this new topology require a significant increase in performance and functionality including full virtualization. The OCTEON TX product line is built from the ground up to seamlessly run Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) on Universal CPEs (uCPEs). Featuring proven integrated acceleration for high-speed packet processing and security using industry standard application programming interfaces (APIs) such as DPDK and ODP the OCTEON TX products provide a fast, efficient platform for deployment.
“We are pleased to offer a comprehensive solution to the needs of the uCPE market, allowing our OEM and ODM customers to provide cost-effective high performance to the service provider market,” said Raj Singh, VP/GM of Cavium’s Networking and Communication Group. “The changes in how customer premises equipment is deployed and used are a key driving force for this technology.”
“Cavium’s acknowledged track record in multicore compute and networking has culminated with the OCTEON TX product family. The highly scalable architecture and integrated acceleration across the full spectrum offer a compelling Armv8 alternative to legacy architectures,” said Simon Stanley, Founder and Principal Consultant at Earlswood Marketing, Ltd.
The OCTEON TX line is supported by a broad range of ODM partner platforms whose solutions are enabling rapid time-to-market for these new applications. Many of these will be demonstrated in Cavium’s suite# 2412 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel during Computex, Taipei.
