Continuous Applies NetLogic

SAN DIEGO and SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Continuous Computing®, the global provider of integrated platform solutions that address the mobile broadband capacity challenge, and NetLogic Microsystems, Inc. [NASDAQ: NETL], a worldwide leader in high-performance intelligent semiconductor solutions for next-generation Internet networks, today announced their collaboration to deliver the industry’s highest performance 40G AdvancedTCA (ATCA) packet processing platforms using NetLogic Microsystems’ XLP™ multi-core, multi-threaded processors with 64 NXCPUs™, the NL11k knowledge-based processors and 10GE PHY solutions.

Based on NetLogic Microsystems’ new XLP832 multi-core processor, Continuous Computing’s flagship FlexPacket™ ATCA-PP80 packet processing blade, first announced in February 2010, is designed to support the new 40G ATCA standards and is targeted at core and edge elements in 3G wireless, Evolved High Speed Packet Access (HSPA+) and Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks as well as Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) applications such as security, video content delivery, lawful intercept and intelligent traffic shaping.

With the doubling of mobile data traffic volumes every nine months, Continuous Computing’s PP80 allows network equipment provider customers, such as Procera® Networks, to enable higher quality of service (QoS), increased revenue opportunities and optimized network efficiency for mobile operators who are desperately trying to close the gap between traffic growth and revenue growth. In addition, as “4G” LTE networks begin to emerge and subscriber adoption and multimedia usage grows, traffic volumes will continue to increase significantly and accelerate the need for more robust traffic offload and security capabilities.
