NITROX Soho Processors continue to gain world-wide
momentum for SOHO/SME security applications
Santa Clara, CA, January 31, 2005 -
Cavium Networks, the leader in content and security processing
with the industry's broadest product line, today announced that
Yamaha's recently introduced RTX1100 Broadband Router incorporates
the Cavium Networks NITROX Soho Secure Communication Processor
(SCP). With the market leading features, price and performance
provided by the NITROX Soho processor, the RTX1100 provides
a compelling solution for the Japanese high-end SOHO and SME
markets. For more information on RTX1100, please visit the Yamaha
website at: http://www.yamaha.co.jp/news/2004/04120101.html
"With the RTX1100, Yamaha has been able to achieve
industry-leading price/performance in a VPN-over-broadband environment,"
said Akira Takayama, General Manager IT Products Development
Division of Yamaha's AV and IT Business Group. "We chose the
NITROX Soho Processor as it is a stable, robust product. Moreover,
it enabled a very rapid time-to-market due to the high scalability
of this product family that allowed us to leverage the development
effort from the RTX1000, and the excellent technical support
from Cavium Networks."
NITROX Soho is an industry leading Secure Communication Processor
family with the best performance, lowest solution cost and unmatched
scalability for SOHO/SME applications. NITROX Soho Processor
family includes six different software and pin-compatible parts
which deliver a range of price, performance and interface options.
The product family integrates a MIPS32T 4Km Processor with 16KB
I-Cache and 16KB D-Cache, 16KB scratchpad and a 32 bit SDRAM
main memory interface.
The new NITROX Soho CN22X products also integrate two powerful
security acceleration engines, with full packet and protocol
processing offload, to the existing NITROX Soho processor family.
This frees up the CPU for other applications and enables support
of up to 200Mbps of all standard encryption and hashing algorithms
such as DES, 3DES, 256 bit AES, ARC4, CCMP and HMAC MD5/SHA1
along with up to 1750 RSA 1024bit exponent or 3000 Diffie-Hellman
180bit exponent operations per second.
The NITROX Soho Secure Communication Processors provide a wide
range of networking I/Os on-chip including three 10/100 Ethernet
MACs, 32bit/33 MHz PCI, UARTs, GPIOs, timers and serial buses
for optimal system integration. A complete Software Development
Kit is available with evaluation boards, software and drivers,
Linux and VxWorks OS support and a broad range of third-party
Cavium Networks NITROX Soho Processors are ideal for SOHO/SME
equipment such as Broadband Routers, Security Appliances, SSL
VPNs, and Wireless Access Points and Switches. The products
have been deployed in currently shipping high-volume equipment
from leading OEMs and ODMs in the US and Asia.
Soho Processors continue to be adopted by leading SOHO/SME vendors
due to their optimal combination of integration and cost, coupled
with a scalable product family," said Rajiv Khemani, VP
of Marketing at Cavium Networks. "We are pleased to enable
Yamaha to deliver a market leading product portfolio with the
NITROX Soho Family."
