Marvell is facilitating the growth of the mobile Internet with the release of a new generation of Xelerated (News - Alert) AX and HX families of network processor (NPU) and traffic management solutions.
The AX and HX families are optimized to enable a new class of efficient, flexible and scalable network infrastructure equipment, such as routers, to facilitate this growth.
The mobile backhaul infrastructure requires significant investments and upgrades so it can support bandwidth demand for mobile video, gaming and a range of real-time applications.
This increase in bandwidth requirement has led to the demand of networks that can support the management of these new services. These issues are addressed by the new AX and HX families of NPUs that help service providers to quickly introduce new services and deployment models.
The new solutions are also said to maintain reliable user experience and lowest total cost of ownership.
“We believe the new Xelerated family of solutions delivers the perfect marriage of programmability and scalability into solutions for our customers as we uniquely position ourselves to a new generation of software defined storage, networking, mobile and compute platforms being designed today,” said Ramesh Sivakolundu, vice president for the Connectivity, Servers and Infrastructure Business Unit (CSIBU) at Marvell (News - Alert) Semiconductor, Inc
Based on Marvell’s unique pipelined, programmable dataflow architecture, the company’s NPUs promises a number of classifications and operations under all conditions, packet sizes and services.
All Marvell NPUs thus utilize few resources and enable faster time to market for its clients developing software.
“Our vision for efficiency is to enable the greatest service density and the fastest service velocity with the fewest number of disparate networking equipment,” added Sivakolundu.
Marvell was in news last month when its ARMADA Mobile world modem was certified to operate on AT&T's (News - Alert) 4G LTE and 3G data networks.
