The OCTEON II CN60XX family of Multi-Core MIPS64 Processors targets SMB and Entry level Enterprise appliances for networking and storage, Retail Appliances, Printers, Enterprise Access Points and Service Provider Gateway
The family includes 4 software and pin-compatible processors, with 1 to 2 cnMIPS64 v2 cores, application acceleration engines for packet processing and storage, and innovative realtime PowerOptimizer™ features, HFA DPI, Authentik™ anti-counterfeiting technologies. It includes the highest performance and largest number of connectivity in its class based on the latest standards-based SERDES I/O’s including PCIe Gen2, SGMII, RGMII
The CN60XX processors, for its class of processors, provides the largest amount of cache and is the only processor to integrate HFA™ based Regular expression engine for UTM/VPN/Firewall application. CN60xx offers the largest amount of L2 cache (512k), largest number of Ethernet controllers, and v2 (5Gbps) PCI-e (3 x1) among other equivalent offerings. Combined with next generation OII cores, CN60xx offers a very compelling entry level control plane processor and low-power, feature rich solution for Satellite and Broadband gateway.
Supported by industry-standard software toolchains and operating systems, the CN60XX is fully pin and software compatible with the OCTEON II CN61XX 1 to 4 processors, enabling scalability from 1 to 4 cores and 400MHz to 4.8Ghz with the same hardware and software design. OCTEON II family is fully software compatible with the widely-adopted OCTEON Plus family, enabling straightforward software reuse.
