Bandwidth Engine Technology Keeps 100Gbit/s Pace
A little company announces a technology that could be a very big deal to big players like Cisco, Juniper.
MoSys Inc., a company that creates designs for use inside an ASIC or FPGA, says it has a memory technology that could greatly simplify 100-Gbit/s line cards. According to the news report on Light Reading, the company says its memory design is crafted to keep up with a 100-Gbit/s pace while also simplifying systems design.
The company announced its Bandwidth Engine technology today, a memory design crafted to keep up with a 100-Gbit/s pace while also simplifying systems design.
"This could be a big deal. Packets sit in memory while a network processor or Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) digs into them. As networking speeds have increased, the time it takes to access data in memory has become crucial.
