The 6WINDGate packet processing software running on LSI's Axxia 3400 communication processor family provides network OEMs with a pre-integrated solution for the deterministic, reliable performance and low power consumption required by data-intensive mobile, cloud and enterprise networks.
The collaboration between LSI and Paris-based 6WIND benefits network OEMs on several fronts, from the pre-integrated software to easy migration to the Axxia platform for OEMs that already use the 6WINDGate software and simplified system creation and deployment for OEMs by combining the switching, control and transport functions of the Axxia platform.
“The combination of 6WINDGate software together with LSI’s Axxia Communication Processor exemplifies the benefits of combining multicore processor technology with efficient packet processing software,” said Joseph Byrne, senior analyst, The Linley Group. “This solution will benefit OEMs by maximising system performance, accelerating their time-to-market and enabling them to focus their internal teams on proprietary, value-added features.”
To help OEMs meet accelerated time-to-market goals, 6WINDGate supports LSI Axxia reference designs, allowing OEMs to rapidly develop and prototype systems. It includes a comprehensive suite of optimised, high-performance Layer 2 through 4 protocols that represent a complete data plane solution for networking equipment, eliminating the need to integrate protocols from multiple suppliers.
“We are delighted to announce the addition of Axxia platform support to the 6WINDGate packet processing software,” said Eric Carmès, CEO of 6WIND. “Because it addresses critical issues in network bandwidth, scalability and Quality of Service, 6WINDGate has been adopted by multiple leading telecom equipment manufacturers and is now deployed in a large number of commercial LTE networks worldwide. The 6WINDGate Cloud Edition solution extends these benefits to datacentre networking applications. Thanks to our close engineering cooperation with LSI, OEMs can now deploy high-performance networking solutions using 6WINDGate software on the Axxia product family.”
“Collaborating with 6WIND provides equipment manufacturers with significant price and performance advantages when combined with the LSI solutions,” said Noy Kucuk, vice president of marketing for the Networking
