APR2i ATCA Intel Xeon Blade

Secure Data & Control Plane Application and Packet Processing for LTE and All-IP Networks

Utilizing the embedded services of both the industry leading Intel Xeon processor and Cavium Octeon II family of multicore processors and an on-board Marvell switch, the Adax PacketRunner2i (APR2i) is specifically designed for networking, security, packet filtering and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) providing a high performance solution for demanding telecom applications. The Intel processor hosts the application and the Cavium OCTEON II processors provide front-end processing of Layer 2 protocols and hardware acceleration of SCTP, M2PA, DPI, and IPsec with efficient separation and processing of both control and data plane flows. Specific Cavium cores are dedicated entirely to security applications, offloading the host processor from this compute intensive work.

Integrated Solution

The integrated solution of the APR2i and Pkt2-AMCs in a complete 1U or 2U system delivers the perfect Communications Appliance. Multiple 10G connectivity is built in as standard with the on-board switch and the optional 40G version requires no extra switch blade or module. Remote monitoring and management is included using a simplified shelf manager for temperature and fan control. Running standard Linux makes for ease of portability between applications and platforms.
