SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Dune Networks, leader in switching fabric and traffic management solutions, announced interoperability with Intel® IXP28XX network processors to provide a solution that builds on the companies’ growing number of customer design-wins. Dune’s SAND Traffic Manager and Switching Fabric chipset, the FAP10V, FAP20V and FE200 devices, in combination with the Intel® IXP28XX network processors provide an end-to-end packet forwarding switching solution.

Following its introduction of the FAP20V and FAP10V devices earlier this year, Dune is continuing to build on its position as the leading provider of integrated traffic management and switching fabric solutions.

In the solution, the FAP10/20V device performs the ingress/egress traffic management of the system, allowing the IXP2800 more resources to perform the ingress/egress packet forwarding tasks. The solution enables customers to design systems with truly scalable switch-fabric and traffic management devices, and with the flexibility of upgrading line-card forwarding functions via the IXP2800.

“Intel’s IXP2800 network processors provide the most flexible packet forwarding solution,” noted Dune Networks’ CTO Ofer Iny. “Together with its modular computing architecture, it provides development cost savings and fast time-to-market for network equipment providers. Dune’s switch fabric with integrated system level traffic management has proven to be a deciding factor for OEMs in choosing their packet switching solution. OEMs insist on a complete QoS solution, one that rises above class-based services.”
