SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Xilinx, Inc., (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced that Bivio Networks, a developer of IP network service platforms, selected Xilinx(R) Virtex-II(TM) Platform FPGAs to enable reprogrammable networking solutions for a variety of Enterprise and Service Provider environments. Bivio Networks used the Xilinx(R) FPGAs to implement an element of Bivio’s eXpressLANE technology which is used for high speed internal system communication. Bivio’s enterprise and service provider customers benefit from dramatic reductions in Capex/Opex spending through network simplicity and increased flexibility. The ease of use of the Xilinx Integrated Software Environment (ISE) provided Bivio with a significant time-to-market advantage over the competition. “Bivio's application of Xilinx FPGAs represents our ability to make a significant impact with enabling technologies for our customers,” said Erich Goetting, vice president and general manager of the Advanced Product Division at Xilinx. “For the first time network operators have the ability to deploy network services based on software assets without the high cost of acquiring and deploying new specialized hardware.” The Bivio 1000 represents a new type of network device that combines the best qualities of a high performance computer and a gigabit speed network device in an integrated platform – at the price point of a single network appliance. Instead of deploying separate routing, security, and other network service products, the Bivio 1000 allows network operators to deploy a single platform that executes software programs with the equivalent functionality and performance of their hardware counterparts.
