Allot Selects RMI's Multi-Core Processor for DPI

Allot Communications, a supplier of IP service optimization solutions based on deep packet inspection (DPI), has selected Raza Microelectronics' (RMI's) multi-core multi-threaded XLR Processor for its Allot Service Gateway.

The Allot Service Gateway is an open, standards-based platform for broadband service control and optimization based on Layer-7 DPI. It features an AdvancedTCA-compliant chassis with modular, hot-swappable DPI blades. A single platform provides four 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, that manage two 10 Gigabit Ethernet lines, supporting more than 20Gbps of traffic. Carrier applications include P2P traffic control, network monitoring, quality of service (QoS) and prevention of security threats.

RMI's XLR Processor is a single-chip solution providing a key building block for next-generation, scalable multi-service systems. The XLR Processor Family features a multiprocessing, multithreaded architecture based on the general purpose MIPS64 processor.

Separately, RMI has expanded its partner alliance to include Altera Corporation, Vitesse Semiconductor, and Octera Corporation. The alliance creates synergy among Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and ODM partners in software, tools, and applications focusing on RMI's MIPS-based product lines: the RMI XLR and XLS Processors and the RMI Alchemy Processor.
