Cavium and XPliant Introduce a Fully Programmable Switch Silicon Family Scaling to 3.2 Terabits Per Second

Cavium, Inc. and XPliant, Inc. introduced the CNX880xx line of Ethernet switch chips featuring the revolutionary XPliant Packet Architecture, delivering no-compromise, high packet throughput on a fully programmable switch architecture. Software Defined Networking, virtualization and faster link speeds continue to emerge as the architectural solutions to alleviate these issues. Performance: Dell'Oro is forecasting connections faster than 10G (25, 40, 50, 100G and beyond) will increase at an annual rate of 60% to $8.2 billion by 2018. Flexibility: Data center networks need to be more agile, to support SDN and NFV initiatives. IDC predicts SDN will grow at over 89% annually, reaching $8 billion by 2018. Flexibility using the XPA will allow new protocols to be implemented in weeks, not years. The CNX880xx family was built from the ground up to utilize XPA, allowing the design team to create a groundbreaking flexible switch without compromising on performance. Existing switches evolved from simple layer 2 bridges, and over time have accumulated many disparate features, resulting in an inefficient architecture. The XPliant team took a fresh, original approach in developing the XPA technology. Dedicated function blocks were replaced with an array of programmable packet engines and shared resources adaptable to perform the various operations required in the switch. The innovative XPA approach will enable the switch to be tailored to the requirements of new protocols with unprecedented flexibility. Software personalities will dictate the exact operation to be performed -- for packet parsing, table look-ups, packet re-writes, fabric scheduling, and statistics and counters -- without impacting performance. The CNX880xx family of switch chips from Cavium and XPliant will provide: Ethernet bandwidth -- 880 Gigabits per second to 3.2 Terabits per second in a single chip; port density at 3.2T with many flexible configurations, including: 32 ports of 100G, 64 ports of 40G or 50G, 128 ports of 10G or 25G and various combinations of these port speeds; Support for the new 25G Ethernet Consortium specification for 25G on a single lane or 50G on two lanes. XPA will be available on XPliant's CNX880xx Ethernet Switch product line, which is expected to sample in fourth quarter of 2014. Evaluation boards will be available at the same time.
