SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Marvell (NASDAQ: MRVL)
today announced the Marvell® Prestera® DX4200 series of packet processors that
enable highly differentiated service-delivery solutions in the access and
aggregation layers for a new generation of converged fixed and mobile
networks. Services such as mobile video, applications and gaming are imposing
complex bandwidth management challenges for private and public wireless
services, and exploding mobile data usage is forcing significant investments
and upgrades in the mobile backhaul environment. The proliferation of Wi-Fi
enabled devices and the drive towards common policy management is also
accelerating new deployments of converged solutions in the campus and
enterprise networks. The DX4200 family is designed to accelerate service
provisioning and improve the deployment and management of these networks while
maximizing service and application monetization.



The eighth generation Prestera DX family continues its leadership in highly
integrated packet switching and leads its competition by being offered in a
28nm process. Incorporating an advanced System-on-Chip (SoC) for converged
wireless and wireline networking, DX4200-based systems enable the integration
of multiple network elements into a single entity, thereby reducing
infrastructure complexity and enabling better TCO with more active services
enablement per watt. An innovative integration of multi-core ARM CPUs, a
carrier grade traffic manager and a flexible IPv6 packet processing pipeline
in the DX4200 enable dynamic software defined networking and advanced service

As organizations move to the software defined public and private clouds, the
Prestera DX enables the graceful transition for advanced service delivery and
application-driven resource management capabilities across virtualized
environments. Furthermore, with the proliferation of trends such as Ethernet
in mobile backhaul, new tunneling and forwarding schemes in the cloud
environments, and consumer managed IT markets, the Prestera DX enables campus
and enterprise IT administrators to overcome increased security challenges in
their own infrastructure.

"As demand for higher service density per watt increases, Marvell is uniquely
positioned to offer platforms for the software defined storage, networking,
mobile and compute clouds being designed today," said Ramesh Sivakolundu, vice
president for the Connectivity, Services and Infrastructure Business Unit
(CSIBU) at Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. "We believe the Prestera DX provides
the best platform for services-driven mobile backhaul and carrier Ethernet
infrastructures along with application-driven secure access and aggregation
layers in datacenter and campus networks."

The DX4200 supports a complete complement of converged service enablers like
CAPWAP, MPLS, VPLS, OAM, SPB and Bridge Port Extension, as well as timing and
synchronization support. An integrated InterLaken interface also enables the
development of transport and circuit switched solutions while leveraging the
service enabling paradigms of the DX4200. The integrated traffic manager
offers hierarchical flow based quality of service and massive external
buffering enabling tens of thousands of applications and users through unique
queuing schemes that insure no variance in user experience across different
access models.

Finally, embedded multi-core ARM v7 processors enable a variety of offload
capabilities that can be used for real-time analytics, system or module
topology management and any other software defined networking solutions with
capabilities that extend well beyond OpenFlow 1.3.2.

A simple and efficient programming model enabled by Marvell's eBridging
architecture reduces design complexity and system development schedules while
accelerating network and service deployment. These advanced features are
coupled with line rate performance, highly flexible physical interfaces and a
large set of standards-based networking capabilities.

This powerful confluence of capabilities enables creative and efficient
solutions for time sensitive, bandwidth-intensive applications and positions
DX4200 as the silicon of choice for software defined infrastructure

The Prestera DX 4200 will sample to lead customers in September 2013.
Interested parties can contact their local Marvell representative for further
details of the comprehensive system development kit (SDK) and related device
collateral of the DX family of products.
