Driven by cloud storage, video and other bandwidth-intensive services, datacenter and enterprise network traffic is exploding. Service providers are investing in new datacenters with power-efficient server systems and software-defined networking (SDN).
Software-defined networking results in more efficient, flexible datacenters, a win-win for service providers, their customers and the environment. The Axxia® Enterprise Communication Processor AXE4500 with ARM® Cortex™-A15 cores delivers on both performance and power efficiency. The processor includes hardware acceleration engines for deep packet inspection, security and other networking functions. The result is a significant increase in performance per watt for SDN switches and routers over solutions using general-purpose processors in enterprise and datacenter networks.
