Tabula Inc., announced today that they are working with Intel Corporation to build a new multi-100 GigE line-rate packet processing platform to deliver a flexible, high-performance solution for next-generation data centers.
The new solution will feature Intel's silicon photonics technology and Tabula's ABAX2P1 programmable devices and combines long-reach and high-density with the ability to support multiple 100 Gbps flows on a single programmable device. Demonstrations of the joint solution are to take place in Tabula's booth at the 2014 Intel Developers Forum, located within the Silicon Photonics community. The event takes place at the San Francisco Moscone Center on September 9-11th.
Tabula's multi-100G line-rate packet processing platform will demonstrate a configurable low-latency 4-port 100G L2-L4 switch designed for next-generation routers and data centers. The platform includes two ABAX2P1 programmable devices and offers a flexible combination of 10G, 40G and 100G interfaces in a low-latency, energy-efficient 1U form factor. The platform scales from 112 ports × 10G to 8 ports × 100G and is compatible with both standard 19" rack and Open Rack specifications. Using Intel® Silicon Photonics technology, it can transmit multiple high-bandwidth data streams.
The platform can be used to develop custom functions such as an embedded switches, TCAM lookup engines or regular expression (RegEx) accelerators operating at 100G line rate. These functions will enable new capabilites for next-generation, purpose-built, top-of-rack (ToR) or leaf switches, aggregation or spine switches, or embedded switches.
"Intel is pleased that Tabula has selected Intel Silicon Photonics technology for their 100G packet-processing platform," said Mario Paniccia, Intel fellow and General manager of the Intel Silicon Photonics Solutions Group. "With Tabula's platform and Intel Silicon Photonics, customers will be able to transmit data at speeds up to 100 Gbps and lengths of up to 300 meters that will support the fast-evolving needs of the new data centers."
