Phoenics Electronics Introduces New Quad Port 1GbE PCI-e Smart Network Adapter With Bypass Targeting DPI and Packet Classification

Niagara 804 Is Based on Cavium Octeon II Multi Core CPU to Boost Packet-Processing in High Speed Monitoring, Security and Networking Equipment

ACTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 -- Phoenics Electronics, a fully franchised, technically supportive, stocking Distributor of semiconductor and board level solutions, today announced a new 1 Gigabit Ethernet (1Gb) Smart Network Adapter with bypass technology. The Niagara 804 fully offloads secure network services, packet classification and network protocols processing from the host CPU to handle high speed network traffic up to 2 Gbps line rate per port. The Smart Network Adapter comes in PCI-e form factor and is targeted at Networking and Security Appliances, Servers and Monitoring Systems.

The Niagara 804 is based on Cavium's Octeon II multi-core processors family of CPUs, which integrates 4, 6 and 10 cores, provides high performance integration for Deep Packet inspection and next generation 3G/4G/LTE wireless base station platforms, providing up to 15GHz of compute with a large 2MB L2 cache, DDR3 memory controller, security acceleration for SNOW 3G and KASUMI, TCP/IP packet processing acceleration, and QoS. PowerOptimizer™ technology limits maximum power from 9 to 20 watts from low-end to high-end.

"Our collaboration with Interface Masters provides the technology and support necessary to provide OEMs with a compelling development platform for high performance hardware accelerated 1G network processing that is easily integrated into networking, security and monitoring appliances," said Peter Rooks, Phoenics Electronics' CEO. "With support for 5Gbps to 10Gbps of deep packet inspection per adapter, failover support and Octeon II multi-core CPU offerings, the Niagara 804 is ideally suited for high performance processing, with extremely low operating power and an attractive price performance."

The smart NIC supports quad 1G copper interfaces, up to 8GByte of DDR3, PCI-e x4 in a full height half-length PCI- Express form factor. The smart NIC can be used as an independent platform which Interface Masters Technologies can customize to include different interfaces or specialized features.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
