Allot Selects RMI's Multi-core Multi-threaded XLR Processor

Raza Microelectronics®, Inc. (RMI), a leading supplier of processors for communications and consumer applications, and Allot Communications (NASDAQ:ALLT), a leader in IP service optimization solutions based on deep packet inspection (DPI), announced that Allot has selected RMI’s multi-core multi-threaded XLR Processor(TM) for the Allot Service Gateway.

The Allot Service Gateway is the industry’s first open, standards-based platform for broadband service control and optimization based on Layer-7 DPI. It is based on an AdvancedTCA®-compliant chassis with modular, hot-swappable DPI blades. A single platform provides four 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, that manage twoGigabit Ethernet lines, supporting more than 20Gbps of traffic.

The Allot Service Gateway meets service provider needs to enforce application-specific policies designed to maximize network efficiency, create new value added services and ensure a high-quality user experience. This is achieved by supporting rapid adoption of premium Internet services and executing mainstay DPI functions such as P2P traffic control, network monitoring, quality of service (QoS) and prevention of security threats.

“Allot searched for a cutting-edge processor that can handle DPI processing requirements in a multi-10Gbps environment. RMI’s XLR processor was chosen as it helped us achieve our challenging design goals by using their well-balanced architecture,” said Roni Keynan, director of engineering at Allot Communications. “RMI was able to give us the performance we were looking for and they made it easy for us to work with them.”

RMI’s XLR Processor is a cost-effective, single-chip solution providing a key building block for next-generation, scalable multi-service systems. The XLR Processor is offered as a complete family of pin-compatible processors spanning performance and bandwidth to enable multiple applications with a single board design. RMI’s XLR Processor(TM) Family provides the power of its innovative, multiprocessing, multithreaded architecture based on the simplicity of a leading edge, general purpose MIPS64(TM) processor enabling wire speed, software-driven applications across multiple platforms.

“We are excited to work with Allot Communications, their Service Gateway product for deep packet inspection takes full advantage of the thread processing that the XLR brings to the market,” said Lance Smith, vice president and general manager, Scalable Processor Solutions, at RMI. “We have a strong relationship with them and believe that the Allot Service Gateway will put DPI at the center of new service offerings for carriers.”

RMI’s products push the edge of processor technology in performance and integration and are used by system and original equipment manufacturers to quickly respond to changing market needs. The company’s XLR Processor(TM), XLS Processor(TM), Alchemy Processor(TM), and Orion(TM) Processor and XLS Processor(TM) families are complex, highly-integrated designs incorporating hundreds of millions of transistors and built on leading-edge silicon process technologies.
