100 Gbps SmartNIC featuring Ethernity’s ENET Flow Processor FPGA software
provides accelerated networking performance for telco/cloud appliances
LOD, Israel, January 16, 2019 – Ethernity Networks (AIM: ENET.L), a leading innovator of software-defined network processing and security solutions on programmable hardware, has successfully completed inaugural delivery of its 100 Gbps ACE-NIC100 FPGA SmartNIC to a major Korean OEM.
The ACE-NIC100 will be incorporated into commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) servers that come with fewer CPU cores compared to regular data center servers, resulting in significant power and cost reduction. The combination of the powerful ACE-NIC100 with edge-optimized COTS servers deliver a high-performance yet affordable and energy efficient platform, ideal for network edge virtualisation.
“Our Korean customer’s investment in building an edge solution based on our ACE-NIC100 shows recognition of Ethernity’s leadership as a provider of networking and security processing software and firmware technology in the field of FPGA SmartNICs,” said David Levi, CEO of Ethernity Networks. “This is further proof and support of our position that FPGA-based technologies are the ideal platform for data path networking acceleration.”
The contract between Ethernity and the Korean OEM specified the final delivery of a customized solution on FPGA, embedding Ethernity’s rich networking features including hierarchical QoS, flow classification, protocol offloading, and routing, with scheduled end-of-year acceptance by the customer.
Leveraging Ethernity’s successful experience with multiple customers of its first-generation ACE-NIC40 SmartNIC, the next-generation ACE-NIC100 is scheduled for further delivery this year to additional partners and OEMs. This is aligned with the company’s strategy of transitioning from selling technology to offering complete products and solutions.
