Intel’s new platform combines multi-core processors with packet accelerators for throughputs up to 120 Mpps and 80 Gbps. This article examines the architecture and its programming model, reveals performance benchmarks, and shows how you can build systems using off-the-shelf hardware and software.


Intel’s latest chipset accelerates security and decompression tasks essential to DPI, enabling use of standard server hardware instead of network processors (NPUs). By moving to the new architecture, developers can save time and money while gaining flexibility and scalability.


Intel’s next-generation communication platform scales from <1 Gbps to 80 Gbps, making it suitable for small cells, macro cell, and cloud-based base stations. By combining the Intel platform with turnkey software like Trillium TOTALeNodeB, developers can rapidly deliver a full range of LTE solutions.

4 GbE-port fanless network appliance with aluminum chassis for efficient heat dissipation. LAN bypass function enabled in BIOS enhances reliability in security apps. Essential I/O and expansion includes a 2.5-inch SSD bay, CF socket, 3x USB, RJ45 console port, and DDR3 SODIMM socket holding up to 4 GB.


Using TRACE32® to debug Intel® Atom™ processor-based designs now gives you the ability to debug your UEFI BIOS of Insyde Software with an intuitive interface, supporting each of its phases, especially within the PEI and DXE phases.


Small form factor, low power, high performance, embedded HD graphics with ECC memory for mission critical client type platform solutions. Has Intel® vPro, Qaud GbE and mSATA support. Suitable for medical, storage, network and many space/power constrained embedded applications.


Based on the Intel® Platform for Communications Infrastructure, the NA-360 has various design advantages including low power consumption, high performance, flexibility, and rich expansion capability; ideal for Firewall, VPN, IDS/IPS, Anti-Spam, Anti-Virus, and UTM Network Management applications.


Reference platforms and OEM products based on the Intel® Platform for Communications Infrastructure, formerly codenamed “Crystal Forest” in ATCA, AMC, PCIe and custom form factors. ADI’s Open IP model reduces margin stacking and supply chain risks inherent with conventional hardware vendors.
