SmartNICs

Ethernity’s FPGA SmartNIC family offers ENET programmable hardware with up to 2 x 100G Ethernet, along with acceleration for essential network virtualization functions, to deliver improved performance, monitoring, load balancing, fault management, and security capabilities at a fraction of the CPU overhead.

With two generations of ACE-NICs – ACE-NIC100 and ACE-NIC40 – to suit your specific port speed and throughput requirements, Ethernity has a solution for the most challenging of networking deployments.

Ethernity also offers a SmartNIC white box solution that can serve as either a standalone network interface device for Telco aggregation platforms or that can be connected to a server to enable even greater compute capability.
