Cavium, Inc. Unveils OpenWRT Software Package for Embedded Devices

Cavium, Inc. unveiled OpenWRT Linux distribution software package to run on OCTEON III CN70/71XX 1 to 4 core processors. The OpenWRT software package is performance-optimized for the Cavium CN71XX router/gateway reference board and will be included free of charge in the Router Reference Design Kit (RDK). This will enable ODMs/OEMs to significantly shorten hardware and software design cycles while delivering best-in-class home/SMB wireless routers and security appliance products. Optimized to leverage Cavium OCTEON III acceleration engines, the OpenWRT for OCTEON offers more CPU headroom for customized services, thereby reducing system costs. Compared to software-only solutions, the Cavium hardware acceleration enables line rate performance using far less CPU resource, 3 times better OpenVPN performance and 18 times better OpenSSL performance. The OpenWRT for OCTEON includes the features: Optimized networking stack leveraging Cavium networking acceleration engine; OpenVPN and OpenSSL packages accelerated by Cavium security acceleration engines; Optional SNORT & Suricata IPS Security packages; Integrated 802.11a/b/g/n & 802.11ac Wi-Fi drivers; Support of 4G LTE USB modems; Easy and flexible configurations through web GUI interface; and Support for Barrier Breaker and Chaos Calmer OpenWRT releases. The OCTEON III CN70XX/CN71XX families of Multi-Core cnMIPS64 Processors target high-end retail, SMB and entry-level enterprise platforms for networking, security, storage and control plane applications. The families integrate single to quad cnMIPS64 v3 cores with virtualization capabilities and hypervisor support. The highly-integrated SoCs also include a rich set of I/O's and Cavium's advanced hardware acceleration for deep packet inspection (DPI).

Cavium, Inc. Introduces New Reference Design for 802.11ac Wlan

Cavium, Inc. introduced a new reference design to enhance the adoption of next-generation multi-gigabit 802.11ac Wave 2 Wireless LAN, or WLAN, access points with built-in security. This BOM-optimized reference design features OCTEON III CN7130 high-performance low-power quad core processor, Quantenna 802.11ac 4x4 MU-MIMO radio, Aquantia AQrate 2.5/5G PHY, 802.11 a/b/g/n 3 x 3 MIMO radio and Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability. The solution delivers multi-gigabit MU-MIMO wireless throughput along with robust secure transport and unique hardware-accelerated deep packet inspection capabilities for application layer security. The modular design is future-proofed to enable smooth upgrades to the next-generation 10G Wi-Fi. The number of mobile devices simultaneously accessing the corporate network and wireless broadband providers is exploding. Additionally, with the rapid adoption of BYOD and Hotspot 2.0, the security vulnerabilities in existing wireless networks are under increased threats. The ability to authenticate hundreds of users using large key sizes, securely transport data, and provide deep packet inspection (DPI) at multi-gigabit rates is crucial to keep the users and the enterprise safe. These access points also operate in thermally challenging environments with minimal airflow, placing increased requirements for low-power, thermally optimized solutions. Powered by OCTEON III CN7130 processor with quad high-performance 64-bit processing cores as well as hardware-accelerated DPI and IPsec/DTLS security support, the reference design has the performance to handle these security threats at the multi-gigabit data rates required by 802.11ac Wave 2 while remaining in a very low-power envelope.
