SAN DIEGO -- Applied Micro Circuits (AMCC) (Nasdaq:AMCC - news) today announced initial shipments of the nP7510, the industry's first fully programmable 10Gbps Network Processor. Introduced last November, the nP7510 completes both the industry's first 10Gbps network processor, traffic manager, and switch fabric platform and the industry's first software-compatible network processor (NPU) family that scales from Fast Ethernet and OC-3 to 10Gbps Ethernet and OC-192 Packet over SONET (PoS) and ATM applications. The nP7510 represents the fourth generation in AMCC's nP7000 family of fully software-programmable, policy-enabled network processors, and with the nPsoft(TM) Development Environment, customers can easily preserve their investments in software from previous generations. The nP7510 complements AMCC's formerly announced 10Gbps traffic managers, framers, PHYs, and switch fabrics to form the industry's first complete integrated solutions for 10Gbps rate metropolitan area (MAN) edge, access, core router, and other applications. "AMCC has a long history of innovation and leadership in the network-processor industry," said Linley Gwennap, principal analyst of The Linley Group. "With the nP7510 now available, AMCC is the first company to offer a 10Gbps solution that includes an NPU and traffic manager (nPX5700). In fact, AMCC also offers 10Gbps framers and PHYs as well as two compatible switch fabrics (nPX5800 and nPX8005) scaling to the terabit range. We expect this to be the most complete 10Gbps solution available until at least 2003." Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC)
