With more than ten partners, the CSIX
program is one of the most impactful threat intelligence information sharing initiatives in the security industry.
The newly emerging CSIX
interface standard allows a mix and match of various off-the-shelf network processors and switch fabric solutions.
Modelware, a leading provider of Semiconductor Intellectual Property (SIP) for telecom and networking applications, today announced the availability of the CSIX
-NPSI SmartBridge(TM) that enables the interoperability of Network Processors and Switch Fabrics using the NPSI and CSIX
html Product description: Modelware and Teradiant Networks will demonstrate the CSIX
-NPSI SmartBridge that enables the interoperability of Network Processors and Switch Fabrics using the NPSI and CSIX
The processor provides a guaranteed forwarding rate of 3 million packets per second and supports the following interfaces: CSIX
and PCI enabling the processor to be used in gigabit line cards, or in access routers that require peer to peer communication and routing functions.
Modelware will demonstrate the CSIX
-NPSI SmartBridge that provides bi-directional interface and protocol translation between Network Processors and Switch Fabrics using the NPSI and CSIX
L1 and OEMs' own proprietary solutions towards SPI-4.
We have implemented the 64-bit CSIX
-L1 at 250 MHz, the CSIX
over LVDS, and the NPSI interface specifications.
The ZTM product family provides these traffic management capabilities and continues to lead in supporting industry-standard interfaces such as CSIX
He was the IBM representative at the CSIX
consortium, holds several patents in switching, wireless and modem technologies, and is a regular speaker at technical sessions in key worldwide events.
The BCM8320 contains a bi- directional dual 10-Gbps CSIX
interface with integrated queue management, scheduling, memory and 16 integrated 3.
Designing with today's advanced high-performance network processors, such as the Intel IXP2800 network processor, requires one to understand and analyze various industry-standard interfaces such as RDRAM, QDR, SPI4-phase 2, CSIX
and PCI 2.
