ZTE Selects Cavium's OCTEON MIPS64 Multi-core Processor

ZTE Corporation has selected Cavium Networks' OCTEON MIPS64 based multi-core processors for its next generation mobile/wireless communication system. ZTE's next gen platforms are being designed to provide 3G Service Providers high performance and scalability with content-aware features at optimal cost and power points.

The companies said ZTE already has an installed base of over 150 million lines of wireless infrastructure equipment deployed in over 25 countries.

  • In January 2006, Cavium Networks unveiled ten new highly integrated single and dual core MIPS64 processors starting at under $20 price points and designed for next generation networking, wireless, control and storage applications. Cavium's OCTEON family of MIPS64 processors now scales from single core to sixteen cores. The OCTEON processor family is being designed into a wide array of networking equipment, including routers, switches, unified threat management (UTM) appliances, application- aware gateways, triple-play gateways, WLAN and 3G access and aggregation devices and storage networking equipment.

    The new SoC (system on chip) processors integrate a custom MIPS64 processor core with advanced multi-layer application acceleration and security processing hardware, along with a wide range of networking I/O options. The new OCTEON CN31XX and CN30XX are fully software compatible with Caviums' OCTEON CN38XX family of multi-core processors.
