STOCKHOLM -- Xelerated, a global leader in network processing and programmable Ethernet switching solutions, today announced volume production of its HX family of 100G network processors (NPU) for packet-OTN, mobile backhaul/PTN and Carrier Ethernet Switch-Routers. The HX family of NPUs has been selected in 20 systems, out of which the first will go into production later this year. System vendors designing with Xelerated NPUs can significantly scale their systems while meeting strict power budgets. Compared to legacy NPUs, the HX family typically reduces power consumption per processed gigabit of traffic by 67 percent.

System vendors are constantly challenged to add new services and features to their Ethernet and IP/MPLS data planes. To increase feature velocity, data planes are increasingly implemented using network processors, which are flexible and can be enhanced through software upgrades. Designed for pizza box and line card slot capacities of 20-200 Gbps, the HX family integrates inherent wirespeed processing and advanced traffic management with deep packet buffering.

In packet-OTN systems, the HX NPU enables Ethernet/MPLS services for 100 Gbps of traffic using a single chip. These line cards are designed for aggregation and transport, and support a range of interface types including GE, 10GE, 40GE, 100GE and OTU0-OTU4. In mobile backhaul, the HX family implements complete L2 and L3 switch-router applications.
