Ezchip Semiconductor Ltd. Highlights New Router Opportunities for NPS

EZchip Semiconductor Ltd. announced that it is providing an update on current market dynamics aiming to disrupt the way carrier and data center networks are built and opening new opportunities for the company's processors. The emergence of 'white box' systems in carrier and data center networks is expected to change how future networking equipment is sourced. The company believes white box systems will open vast new opportunities for off-the-shelf merchant silicon, which may substantially decrease future competition from in-house chip developments. For the company, a market leader in merchant network processors (NPUs), the shift unfolding within the networking and data center markets, due to white boxes, as well as the proliferation of SDN and NFV, provides access to new large market segments which were previously held captive by equipment vendors who often opted to use in-house chips. New network architectures implementing SDN and NFV present a fundamental change across carrier and data center networks and aim to deliver benefits in service agility and revenue generation, operational efficiencies and capex savings. Central to SDN and NFV is the underlying infrastructure which leverages commercial off-the-shelf switching and routing hardware. These 'white boxes' are typically standard low-cost hardware systems, available from multiple hardware vendors, which rely on operating systems and software applications purchased separately from software vendors or loaded from the open source community, and in some cases augmented by in-house development by the operators themselves. At the core of the white box is a silicon engine driving all data processing and forwarding. For white box routing systems, the company's NPS network processor is emerging as a leading merchant silicon offering for the deployments targeting performance, scale, and features often required in systems for large service provider and data center networks. The company's NPS is well-positioned within the emerging white box, SDN, and NFV markets as a key merchant silicon solution capable of providing data plane layer 2-7 functionality in a single chip. The company's NPS network processor specifically targets open and software programmable routing platforms as well as the acceleration and scaling of NFV virtual applications to carrier and data center grade. The NPS-400 is scheduled to sample in the fourth quarter of 2015 and the next generation NPS-1000, with more than double the throughput is already in development. Both the NPS-400/1000 are a testament to the company's long-standing commitment to deliver products which support changing market dynamics and are expected to solidify the company's position in the merchant, high-speed, programmable, feature rich, network processor market. SDN and NFV present operators with the opportunity to reshape the current networking vendor ecosystem, and utilize an increasing number of vendors and solutions. In particular, as network operators embrace the white box model such a model is expected to disrupt the model of current "closed" proprietary solutions provided by a small number of router vendors, and open their networks to an unprecedented diversification of vendors. With many alternatives for both system hardware and software, yet limited offerings of merchant routing silicon, the company is potentially poised to see great benefit from the traction of SDN and NFV in carrier, data center, cloud and enterprise networks. Furthermore, the adoption of SDN and NFV holds the potential, over time, to tip the scale towards networking vendors favoring merchant silicon over in-house chips for their proprietary networking equipment. Thereby further increasing the market opportunities for the company as a supplier of powerful routing silicon for carrier and data centers.

ZTE Corporation Selects Ezchip's NPS-400 Network Processor for its Next-Generation Carrier Router Line Cards

EZchip Semiconductor Ltd. announced that ZTE Corporation has selected EZchip's NPS-400 network processor for its next-generation carrier router line cards. The ZTE routers that will utilize the NPS-400 will benefit from its high throughput, advanced functions and greater flexibility. The NPS-400 will allow ZTE to offer customers higher port densities at lower power, as well as the ability to deliver new high-value services and features, with time to market advantages. ZTE has achieved success with, and continues to ship, multiple products based on EZchip's network processors. The NPS-400 will build upon the success ZTE attained with the NP product family. The NPS is architected to address the next generation of smart high-performance carrier and data-center networks. It provides great packet processing simplicity and flexibility through C-based programming, a standard toolset, support of the Linux® operating system, large code space, and a run-to-completion or pipeline programming style. A comprehensive library provides source code for a variety of applications to speed customer's design cycle. The NPS features programmable CPU cores that are highly optimized for packet processing and leverage EZchip's vast packet processing and applications experience, a market-proven traffic manager, hardware accelerators for security and DPI (Deep Packet Inspection) tailored for efficiency and performance, on-chip search engines including TCAM with scaling through algorithmic extension to external low-cost low-power DRAM memory and a multitude of network interfaces providing an aggregated bandwidth of 800-Gigabits per second including 10-, 40- and 100-Gigabit Ethernet, Interlaken and PCI Express interfaces.
