In an effort to address security challenges faced by Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in an enterprise’s campus and small and medium enterprise (SME) networks globally, silicon solutions provider Marvell (News - Alert) has unveiled a new line of packet processors, the Marvell Prestera DX series, which enable secure and power efficient solutions for a next generation of access networks.
The new series of advanced Prestera DX product suite encompasses 28nm 10GbE (Gigabit Ethernet) and GbE packet processors, such as DX8216, DX3336 and DX3236, which are part of the new DX8200 family, DX3300 and the DX3200 respectively.
The company says the new Marvell Prestera DX product family carries forward its legacy of providing highly integrated packet switching in the 28nm process, with an advanced System-on-Chip (SoC) architecture.
Designed to simplify and secure converged access deployments, the DX3300 and the DX3200 families cater to the demanding access needs of carrier, industrial and campus networks by enabling host management and providing embedded additional security and monitoring applications and facilitating the off-loading of complex services.
The respective capabilities of product family members address important customer needs.
The DX8200 family of packet processors will cater to 10GbE-enabled servers by offering options for networking in the cost sensitive environments of the small and medium enterprises (SME) core and aggregation.
Offering support for IEEE (News - Alert) 802.1BR tunneling schemes, the new DX3300-based systems are equipped with dual-core on-chip ARM CPUs and facilitate feature rich and secure GbE and 10GbE access, centralized management and a port extender model of deployment in the enterprise.
Te DX3200 family of devices is designed for cost sensitive GbE access for unmanaged and intelligent access networking solutions, as they feature power efficient design without compromising on the full complement of the features needed in such networks.
The new Prestera DX8216, which belongs to DX8200 family, integrates 16 ports of 10GbE with advanced eBridging architecture for native 10GbE server connectivity in the SMB/SME networks.
The Prestera DX3336, which belongs to DX3300 family, integrates a dual core ARM (News - Alert) v7 CPU with 24 ports GbE, 2 ports of 10GbE and 2 ports of 20G stacking for campus edge/access networks.
Commenting on the increased proliferation of BYOD and the drive towards common security and policy management of the converged networks, Ramesh Sivakolundu, vice president CSIBU, Marvell, said these trends are pushing new network architecture models.
Sivakolundu added, "The Prestera DX portfolio of devices, coupled with a total solutions approach, continues to offer a variety of switching solutions to enable secure, feature-rich and cost sensitive access in campus and SMB networks across the globe."
