GE Fanuc Adds WANics

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms, a unit of GE Enterprise Solutions, today announced the WANic™ 56511 and WANic™ 56512 intelligent, high performance packet processors. Designed to allow customers to respond to the rapidly-increasing network traffic loads that are a result of growth in the use of search engines, cloud computing, mobile devices, Web 2.0 and online gaming, the new processors offload processing from the host system, allowing for more cost-effective, higher performance expansion of capacity. Target customers include system design engineers, system architects and product managers building networked communications systems based on the PCI Express™ architecture who need secure IP communications and 10Gb Ethernet packet processing for commercial, telecommunications, and defense applications.

“The WANic 56511 and 56512 are the first and, at this time, the only products of this type available today: no competing product offers comparable price/performance in complex, demanding network applications,” said Rubin Dhillon, Communications Product Manager at GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms. “They will allow our customers to design and build network devices more easily, at lower cost and with quicker time to revenue, and with the opportunity to add value through scalable functionality.”
