Xelerated Enhances its Processors and Programmable Ethernet Switches

Xelerated released version 5.0 of its Software Development Kit (SDK) for its new generation of HX Carrier Ethernet network processors (NPUs) and AX Programmable Ethernet Switches. Enhancements enable system vendors to develop and customize data plane software for their unified fiber access and next generation Metro Ethernet platforms. The SDK 5.0 instruction set and programming model are compatible with previous NPU generations, thus easing reuse of existing applications and migration of code for existing X11 customers that are looking to optimize their data planes with the capabilities of new generation Carrier Ethernet devices.
