目次

Multicore processors are now the heart of almost every type of networking device. Over the past eight years, multicore processors have developed from simple devices integrating two general-purpose cores into highly integrated system-on-chip devices with up to 100 cores and hardware acceleration for security and low-level packet processing. Multicore processors can be programmed in C or other high-level languages and are directly supported by multicore operating systems (OSs) and applications software from companies such as 6WIND, Enea, and Wind River.

The market for multicore processors in networking continues to grow. Many companies are using multicore processors for functions that were previously handled by application-specific integrated circuits (ASIC) or field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA). This has enabled telecom equipment vendors to develop a small number of generic packet-processing blades that can be customized in software to meet different application and service requirements. Multicore processors are the key to meeting carriers' and other customers' demanding requirements for flexible systems. The first integrated multicore processors, using 130nm and 90nm technology, were introduced in 2004. The development of 65nm and 40/45nm silicon technology has allowed the integration of significantly more memory, high-performance cores, and enhanced network interfaces. The latest multicore processors integrate more than 12MB of cache memory and more than 100-Gbit/s networking input/output (I/O) bandwidth.

Multicore Processors for Network Systems: A Heavy Reading Competitive Analysis surveys vendors developing high-performance multicore processors. As such, it not only provides granular information on the components themselves - of interest to chip manufacturers and purchasers - but also provides insights into how the overall market for multicore processors is likely to develop - of interest to a wide audience, including carriers and investors.

The report is based on interviews conducted with 11 multicore processor vendors in the second quarter of 2010, previous interviews with all the vendors covered, and product documentation supplied by these vendors. These in-depth interviews also offer insight into how the market for multicore processors is likely to develop in the future.

The report offers detailed information on all types of high-performance multicore processors, including:

  • General-purpose multicore processors: Multicore processors based on general-purpose CPUs that can be used in high-performance networking systems
  • Integrated multicore processors: Multicore processors with integrated packet processing instructions, hardware acceleration engines, and networking-specific interfaces
  • 10/100-Gbit/s network processors: Network processors with a mix of high-performance packet engines and hardware acceleration engines
