SAN FRANCISCO -- February 25, 2013

RSA CONFERENCE – Wind River®, a world leader in embedded and mobile software,
is providing Wind River Intelligent Network Platform for use on the latest WIN
SoNIC (System-on-NIC) network acceleration board from WIN Enterprises. The WIN
SoNIC board featuring Wind River software will be demonstrated in the Intel
booth (#1439) at RSA Conference 2013, February 25 through March 1 in San

Designed as an easy add-on for servers, WIN SoNIC is a small form factor,
multi-purpose accelerator card that can offload CPU-intensive applications to
immediately improve network performance. A highly flexible and multi-purpose
card, WIN SONIC can be used in a variety of applications such as big data
acceleration, cloud processing offload, VPN gateways, next generation
firewalls, media gateways, or virtually any scenario that benefits from
offloading CPU or network data heavy applications.

Unlike other accelerator cards limited to a single use, the WIN SoNIC can be
easily repurposed at any time. Support for Intel® Virtualization
Technology(Intel VT) by both the hardware and software enables the
maximization of network system resources. WIN Enterprises is a leading
designer and manufacturer of embedded controllers and platforms for original
equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

“WIN SoNIC has the ability to preprocess and direct data to where it's needed
and provides a common x86-based network platform that is easy to grow and
maintain for demanding future networks,” said Chiman Patel, chief executive
officer and chief technology officer at WIN Enterprises. “Having Wind River
Intelligent Network Platform power the WIN SoNIC injects a powerful
combination of high performance and network intelligence via deep packet

“As the need for greater performance, scalability, and intelligence increases
in the networking industry, companies will require flexible and powerful
solutions to fit a diverse set of needs. WIN SoNIC with the Wind River
software provides customers with a simple option to boost their capabilities
and deliver a high quality of service,” said Paul Senyshyn, senior director of
communication platforms at Wind River. “Together with WIN Enterprises, we are
able to deliver network intelligence and acceleration technology breakthroughs
that meet the demands of the quickly evolving networking market.”

WIN SoNIC with Wind River Intelligent Network Platform consolidates networking
workloads through integrated data preprocessing, deep packet inspection,
crypto-acceleration to enable faster, more efficient processing in the
application, control and packet/content planes of the network. The  board
features the latest Intel® Platform for Communications Infrastructure, with
integrated Intel QuickAssist Technology. Evaluations of the board are
available now from WIN Enterprises.

Wind River Intelligent Network Platform is comprised of software that manages
a consolidated control and data plane system, and software engines that
provide capabilities such as fast packet acceleration and deep packet
inspection. Configured with Wind River Linux, which is Yocto Project
Compatible, and a comprehensive suite of development tools, the software
platform can also support different combinations of the components, including
alternative Linux distributions. Wind River Intelligent Network Platform is
optimized for Intel® architecture, including the latest Intel® Platform for
Communications Infrastructure, and is integrated with the Intel® Data Plane
Development Kit (Intel® DPDK).
