Crossbeam Systems Uses EZchip's Network Processors for its X-Series Next Generation Security Platform

CAMPBELL, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 25, 2008— EZchip Technologies Ltd. (a LanOptics Ltd. company, NASDAQ:EZCH), a fabless semiconductor company providing Ethernet network processors, today announced that Crossbeam Systems, the leading provider of next-generation security platforms for high-performance networks, is using EZchips NP-2 network processors in the Network Processor Modules (NPM) of the Crossbeam X-Series Next Generation Security Platform product family. The Crossbeam NPMs utilizing the EZchip NP-2 are already shipping to customers.

We evaluated the available network processor silicon vendors and selected EZchips NP-2 because of its IP network focus, true 10Gbps bi-directional performance and single chip implementation, said Chet Gapinski, Crossbeams Vice President of Engineering. We are impressed with the capabilities of NP-2, enabling us to deliver true 10Gbps performance in our next-generation Network Processing Modules. Additionally, we are confident that EZchip has the technology and track record to execute their road map to 20Gbps and beyond.

Crossbeams highly successful X-Series line of security platforms is already deployed in many enterprises, carrier networks and data centers worldwide, and EZchip is privileged that Crossbeam has opted to leverage EZchips network processors for providing switching and load-balancing services in this system, said Kosta Sidopoulos, EZchips Sales Director. We look forward to continue working with Crossbeam to support its requirements for a best-in-class, high-performance platform that will meet the next-generation security needs of its customers.

EZchips network processors (NPU) provide networking equipment vendors with flexible packet processing and integrate the key functions needed for delivering triple-play services across packet-based networks and for enabling Carrier Ethernet networks. EZchips NPU highlights include:

  • NP-2, NP-3 and NP-4 family of high-speed NPUs, providing throughput of 20Gbps, 30Gbps and 100Gbps respectively.
  • NPA family of access NPUs, providing throughput of up to 10Gbps with several chip models featuring multiple 10-Gigabit, 1-Gigabit and 100-Megabit Ethernet ports.
  • Exceptionally flexible packet processing enabling system designers to future proof their designs while delivering a variety of applications such as L2 switching, Q-in-Q, PBT, VPLS, MPLS and IPv4/IPv6 routing.
  • Integrated hierarchical traffic management enabling granular bandwidth control, assigns individual flows with specific Quality of Service (QoS) and enforces Service Level Agreements (SLA) for applications, services and users.
  • On-chip Operations, Administration and Management (OAM) processing offload enabling reliability and high availability in Carrier Ethernet networks.
  • Software compatibility across all of EZchips NPU families enabling efficient use of vendors engineering resources.
