A shift toward network function virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networks (SDN) can be effective because many nodes within a network share the common functionality requirements, however virtualization has its own challenges. Software programmability alone won’t be enough to enable generic hardware to scale easily with growing bandwidth demands. A programmable hardware and software infrastructure is the only way to truly implement the vision of NFV and SDN. Ethernity’s product offering supports creation of re-programmable hardware solutions.
Mobile backhaul experiences a major paradigm shift from current PDH and ATM transport to Ethernet based networks. The two main factors driving this transition are the dramatic increase in bandwidth demand and pressure on mobile operators to reduce costs. This is true also for two types of network elements that any mobile backhaul network requires: Cell Tower Gateway and Network Edge Aggregator. Ethernity’s access processors provide the best solution for designing efficient and cost effective CTGs and NEAs
Carrier grade Ethernet services support a range of applications more easily, efficiently and cost-effectively than other network services. Ethernet services will undoubtedly evolve to take advantage of Ethernet technology and provide innovative new service features. It is clear that Ethernet services will continue to provide the benefits of simplicity, cost effectiveness and flexibility that are unmatched for a wide range of applications. Ethernity’s ENET access flow processors (AFP) are the first devices in the industry implemented on a low cost FPGA.
Wireless transmission is achieved today by two main technologies such as point-to-point line-of-sight communications or Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN). Ethernity offers a unique packet transmission solution for carrier grade scalable 10G mesh wireless backbone in point-to-point and mesh network based on the off-the-shelf wireless technology with maximum availability and scalability. As a result the scalable solution provides dramatic CAPEX and OPEX reduction
Avionics Secured Switch extends standard Ethernet to provide high data integrity and deterministic timing. Ethernity optimizes FPGA End System and switch SoC for Avionics. Ethernity’s ENET provides the fragmentation inherent feature to enable transmission of shorter packets, which results in less overall latency and jitter. Hierarchical queuing and hierarchical shaping supports scheduling requirements of VLs. Jitter buffer functionality in ENET allows the user to gain end-to- end control of jitter in the entire ADN.
The market requirements for broadband access lead to development of a platform that supports higher throughput, new applications, protocols and interfaces without implementing a special new silicon. Combining Ethernity Networks efficient ENET architecture with FPGA create a family of products tailored to the needs of access aggregation and interworking platforms. Ethernity’s ENET access flow processors have the best available combination of performance, feature set, flexibility, and price.
