The ATCA 64-Core Packet Processor AT8242 offers high compute performance and service features for demanding 4G/LTE Evolved Packet Core Gateways, DPI, IPTV and content delivery platforms, Video Optimization, and GPON and EPON elements.
It offers a superior performance per Watt, power optimization, embedded virtualization, and a multitude of hardware acceleration features, including DPI acceleration with integrated HFA (RegEx Engine), TCP and ROHC, packet processing, compression, RAID 5/5 and de-dup, and multi-core scaling.
The Cavium Networks OCTEON II processor also combines over 85 L3-L7 application acceleration engines, virtualization features, 100Gbps of connectivity, and a new Real Time Power Optimizer™ that dynamically adjusts power depending upon the application level processing requirement
Clients may consider using the AT8242 40G packet processor blade in combination with the new Kontron OM9141-40G and OM9141-10G ATCA 14-slot platforms, featuring market-leading switch management software and up to four times the I/O switching bandwidth than the previous platform generation.
The Kontron AT8242 is designed for versatility and can be used in many core and edge network applications, particularly Packet Data Network Gateways (PGW), Serving Gateways (SGW) and Mobility Management Entity (MME) network elements found in the 4G LTE Evolved Packet Core (EPC). Growth in mobile data traffic networks will require more efficient and powerful deterministic processing of applications such as packet processing, deep packet content inspection (RegEx), application-aware switching and routing, parsing, IPv6/IPv4 forwarding, compression and decompression, classification, and Quality-of-Service (QoS) at 40Gbps wire-speed..
