San Jose, Calif -- EZchip Technologies (a subsidiary of LanOptics Ltd., NASDAQ: LNOP), a fabless semiconductor company providing high-speed network processors, today announced that its NP-1c 10-Gigabit network processor has completed three industry performance benchmarks for key applications: the LinleyBenchTM network processors benchmark, the Network Processing Forum (NPF) MPLS Forwarding Benchmark and the NPF IP Forwarding Benchmark for IPv6 and IPv4. NP-1c is the only 10-Gigabit network processor to complete the NPF MPLS Forwarding and the demanding LinleyBench benchmarks. The third benchmark, the NPF IP Forwarding, was performed by NP-1c using very large routing tables, two orders of magnitude larger than those used by the only other 10-Gigabit network processor to perform this benchmark. NP-1c exhibited wire-speed throughput and low latency for all test scenarios. All tests were conducted at The Tolly Group, selected by the NPF and The Linley Group as the independent certification authority.

"The tests performed by The Tolly Group demonstrate NP-1c supremacy," said Amir Eyal, VP Business Development at EZchip. "We chose to perform the tests with large routing tables to simulate a real life environment. For other network processors to execute the same tests using routing tables of similar size would require dozens more chips, resulting in significantly higher cost and power dissipation."
