Emerson Network Power to Deliver Innovative ATCA Packet Processing Solutions Based on Latest Cavium Networks OCTEON II Processors

TEMPE, Ariz. [May 11, 2010] – Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, today announced plans to deliver innovative packet processing solutions based on AdvancedTCA™ technology and powered by the OCTEON® II 68XX multi-core MIPS64® processor family, unveiled today by Cavium Networks (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of highly integrated semiconductor products.

Emerson Network Power was one of the first companies to deliver solutions based on the second generation Cavium OCTEON Plus Multicore processors and has established a leadership position with telecom equipment manufacturers worldwide. Emerson Network Power ATCA packet processing products are being deployed in a broad range of IMS, LTE, 3G and 4G applications including packet gateways and lawful intercept solutions.

“With the major increase in bandwidth required by 3G and 4G mobile networks, there is strong end-user demand for 40G ATCA processing solutions. With their proven OCTEON expertise and as a Cavium PACE ecosystem member, Emerson Network Power is an ideal partner to bring Cavium’s next-generation multicore processors to market in a standards-based bladed architecture,” said Steve Klinger, director of product line management, Embedded Processor Group, Cavium Networks. “Combining Emerson Network Power’s strong position in deployed 40G ATCA systems with Cavium’s latest high performance multicore processors will help accelerate the development and delivery of feature-rich, next-generation infrastructure equipment with optimal cost, performance, and power efficiency.”

“The broad array of large and small network equipment makers that have already realized time-to-market and cost benefits with our OCTEON processor-based ATCA-9305 packet processing blade will be able to take advantage of the unprecedented compute and services performance of the OCTEON II CN68XX with ease,” said Rob Pettigrew, marketing director, Embedded Computing, Emerson Network Power. “The large number of customers that have future-proofed their infrastructure by deploying our 40G-ready Centellis 4440 and Centellis 2000 systems will also be quick to realize the benefits of ATCA performance beyond 10G when we announce products based on our collaboration with Cavium. This strategic thinking and forward planning is what the market has come to expect from an industry leader such as Emerson Network Power.”
