Marvell Prestera DX4200 series

The eighth generation Prestera DX4200 series of 28nm packet processors was unveiled by Marvell to address various service-delivery needs of the latest converged fixed and mobile networks. The DX4200 family facilitates application-driven resource management and virtualisation for organisations transitioning to software-defined public and private mobile and cloud infrastructures. The product line, which is set to be demonstrated to lead customers in September, also provides security solutions for campus and enterprise IT administrators.

Incorporating an advanced System-on-Chip (SoC) for converged wireless and wire line networking, DX4200-based systems enable the integration of multiple network elements into a single entity, thereby reducing infrastructure complexity and enabling better TCO with more active services enablement per watt. An integration of multi-core ARM CPUs, a carrier grade traffic manager and a flexible IPv6 packet processing pipeline in the DX4200 enable dynamic software defined networking and advanced service virtualisation.

The DX4200 supports a complete complement of converged service enablers like CAPWAP, MPLS, VPLS, OAM, SPB and Bridge Port Extension, as well as timing and synchronisation support. An integrated InterLaken interface also enables the development of transport and circuit switched solutions while leveraging the service enabling paradigms of the DX4200. The integrated traffic manager offers hierarchical flow based quality of service and massive external buffering enabling tens of thousands of applications and users through unique queuing schemes that insure no variance in user experience across different access models.

Finally, embedded multi-core ARM v7 processors enable a variety of offload capabilities that can be used for real-time analytics, system or module topology management and any other software defined networking solutions with capabilities that extend well beyond OpenFlow 1.3.2.

A simple and efficient programming model enabled by Marvell's eBridging architecture reduces design complexity and system development schedules while accelerating network and service deployment.
