First 40 Gbps "Bump-in-the-Wire" Deep Packet Inspection / Application Recognition Processor Family
Single Chip NITROX® DPI II Processor Family and Cavium TurboDPI Software Offers Unmatched Inline and Coprocessor Solutions for Enterprise, Wired and Wireless Service Provider OEMs
The rich feature set and high performance of this processor family is enabled by the on-chip revolutionary Hyper Finite Automata (HFA) engines and optimized TurboDPI software. NITROX DPI II enables market-leading performance, and speeds up the time to market for OEMs building equipment for Enterprise, Data Center, 3G & 4G Wireless and Service Provider applications.
The NITROX DPI II CN18XX family is unique in the market as it can be used in both inline and coprocessor modes. In coprocessor mode it connects over its in-built PCI Express interface to offload general purpose processors i.e. x86, MIPs or PowerPC based systems that lack such advanced hardware DPI engines.
The HFA engines in CN18XX family support highly complex rules and can process millions of rules without any performance impact. This processor family further enhances Cavium's market leading Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) product portfolio that includes NITROX DPI, OCTEON II processor family and TurboDPI software.
The NITROX DPI II family is fully software and rule syntax compatible with the DPI engines in Cavium's highly successful OCTEON II processor family and the NITROX DPI CN17XX family offering a wide variety of scalable and compatible system design options to customers.
