Mindspeed to Showcase the Industry's First ARM Cortex A9-based Communications Processor with Integrated DPI at 2013 CES
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of
semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today
announced that it has fully integrated DPI technology from Lionic
Corporation in its latest Comcerto 2000 communication processor
family. This DPI technology enables advanced and versatile capabilities
including real-time anti-virus scanning, application-dependent QoS,
advanced parental controls, keyword filtering and URL filtering.
Mindspeed will host a live demonstration of DPI solutions for broadband
operators, communications original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), press
and analysts in meeting room MP25371
in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center at the 2013
International CES from January 8-11, 2013 at the Las Vegas
"By integrating Lionic's Layer-7 DPI engine with Mindspeed®'s next
generation communications processor we have opened up a new range of
potential applications," said Eric Lu, chief executive officer at
Lionic. "The combination of Mindspeed's expertise in communications
processors with Lionic's turnkey security offering has produced a
breakthrough in security price-performance, enabling the Comcerto 2000
to provide outstanding performance in gateway-based antivirus solutions,
intrusion prevention systems (IPS), application-level policy enforcement
and content management and other security tasks."
"Security is becoming an increasingly important element in routers and
access points, especially as broadband service providers expand their
offerings within the digital home and small office markets," said Marco
E. Bello, executive director of marketing and product management for the
communications convergence processing (CCP) business unit at Mindspeed.
"With our latest communications processor family, we are addressing a
wide range of security applications which all benefit from the
performance and cost-effectiveness of our Comcerto 2000 product and the
addition of Lionic's embedded functionality."
"ARM (News - Alert) understands that as the number of connected devices in the home and
office continues to rise, families and businesses need communications
technology to evolve and safeguard their online lives," said Ian Drew,
executive vice president, Marketing and Business Development, ARM. "We
are therefore pleased that Mindspeed and Lionic are collaborating to
integrate this DPI technology. It will help to deliver secure digital
experiences and has the potential to enable new applications and
opportunities for Mindspeed customers."
With advanced DPI functionality now part of Mindspeed's Open Packet
Acceleration Logic (OPAL™) wire-speed data-path acceleration technology
and the Comcerto 2000's powerful dual 1.2GHz ARM
Cortex A9, the carrier-class solution is ideally suited to many
compelling new product classes found in broadband-enabled residences and
small-to-medium business (SMB) settings:
Enterprise-class DPI for residential and SMB devices
Advanced parental control for telco-managed gateways
Application-based quality of service for 802.11ac enterprise access
Leading edge anti-virus, intrusion detection and intrusion prevention
Bundled security and content management for improved quality of
Mindspeed's Comcerto 2000 processors use intelligent offloading to run
wire-rate Gigabit-per-second IPv6 NAT and firewall applications while
keeping their 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processors fully available for
executing value-added applications from OEMs or service providers.
NOTE: Lionic Corporation will host a live demonstration of DPI
technology featuring Mindspeed's Comcerto 2000 processor in booth 257 at
RSA Conference from February 26-28, 2013 at the Moscone Center
in San Francisco, CA (News - Alert).
About Mindspeed's Comcerto 2000 Family of Communications Processors
Mindspeed introduced the Comcerto 2000 multi-core ARM Cortex-A CPU-based
communications processors in June 2012. Bringing software defined
networking (SDN) to the edge of the network, the processors enable a new
generation of products for switching, routing, security, multi-service
gateways, enterprise class wireless access points and controllers,
network attached storage and VoIP applications for residential,
enterprise and networking equipment for small and medium businesses. The
processor family is ideally suited for either control processors or for
mixed control and data plane applications.
They can be used in a variety of secure systems, including security
gateways or converged broadband home routers (BHRs) and set-top box
(STB) media gateways that require digital rights management (DRM)
support. The devices are backward-compatible with the wide range of
carrier-proven software that has been developed for Comcerto 100 and
1000 communications processors, enabling manufacturers to rapidly
develop a family of products for different price-performance points.
The first devices in the series feature dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9
MPCore™ processors with symmetric multi-processing (SMP), coherent level
two cache and ARM TrustZone® security which enables a new class of
cost-effective products that support new protocols and higher speeds
with lower power consumption. Silicon, carrier-grade software and Linux
software design kits (SDK) are sampling now.
