Multicore MIPS64 Processor family
The Cavium Networks OCTEON family of Multi-core MIPS64 Processors is the industry’s most scalable, highest-performance, and lowest-power solution for intelligent networking applications ranging from 100Mbps to full-duplex 10Gbps. These software-compatible processors, with one to sixteen cnMIPS cores on a single chip, integrate next-generation networking I/Os along with the most advanced security and application hardware acceleration, offering unprecedented throughput and programmability for the Layer 2 through Layer 7 processing requirements of intelligent networks.
The OCTEON processors are targeted for use in a wide variety of OEM networking equipment, including routers, switches, unified threat management (UTM) appliances, content-aware switches, application-aware gateways, triple-play gateways, WLAN and 3G access and aggregation devices, storage networking equipment, servers, and intelligent NICs.
The OCTEON product family is divided into four product lines based upon the distinct performance, feature, and cost requirements of the target equipment. All OCTEON processors are software compatible and supported by industry-standard software toolchains and operating systems. Various product options are available within each OCTEON family to suit the specific needs of each individual application.
