SUNNYVALE, Calif. and HOD HASHARON, Israel -- Azanda Network Devices today announced that Seabridge, a Siemens company, will develop multi-service access equipment using Azanda's recently announced Scimitar(TM) AZ61100 traffic management device. Seabridge will take advantage of the first-to-market traffic management features and functions of the Scimitar(TM) device in its Attane XpressPass(TM) next-generation IP/ATM platform. This agreement provides Azanda, an innovator in the development of silicon products for managing the way traffic is processed in network core, edge and enterprise markets, with a top-tier customer as one of its early implementers. "Azanda was able to demonstrate an advanced feature set for our broadband IP/ATM multi-service access solutions in a single device, which minimized power and system footprint requirements and accelerated our development time," stated Eyal Assa, director of engineering for Seabridge Networks' Attane XpressPass(TM) next-generation program. "The combination of the device-configurable hard-wired traffic management algorithms with Azanda's advanced software capabilities dramatically reduces the software development effort involved in integrating Scimitar(TM) technology into our system." The Scimitar(TM) AZ61100 integrated circuit is a full-duplex OC-48 traffic manager with an integrated segmentation and re-assembly (SAR) in a single-chip 40 mm x 40 mm Flip-Chip Ball Gate Array (FCBGA) device. Utilizing industry standard interfaces such as PL3 and SPI-4.2, the chip dissipates less than 5 watts of power at full line speed while servicing up to one million simultaneous traffic flows. These standard interfaces allow Seabridge to easily integrate the Scimitar(TM) AZ61100 traffic manager with other devices in the system while the deterministic nature of the Scimitar(TM) engine substantially reduces the software engineering efforts required to implement traffic management on their multi-service access equipment.
