WIN Enterprises, a designer and manufacturer of embedded controllers and platforms for OEMs, announced the WIN SoNIC network acceleration board, which is based on the Intel platform for communications infrastructure, formerly codenamed "Crystal Forest."
The solution supports 32nm Intel Xeon processor E3-1125 or Intel Core processor i3-2115 with two or four cores. It also supports the Intel Communications Chipset 89xx series with Intel QuickAssist technology, and dual 10 GbE optical LAN with modular expansion to 100 GbE.
The WIN SoNIC (System-on-NIC) uses software from Wind River and other Intel Intelligent Systems Alliance members to consolidate network workloads through integrated data preprocessing, deep packet inspection, crypto acceleration, and dual 10 GbE optical LAN capabilities, which will be expandable to 100 GbE.
It is a standard half-length PCIe card that connects to network servers through a PCIe slot to enable performance improvements in broadband networking. WIN SoNIC supports the 32nm Intel Xeon processor E3-1125 or Intel Core processor i3-2115 with 2 or 4 cores and HyperThreading Technology.
The Intel Data Plane Development Kit (Intel DPDK) helps enable the rapid development of mid-ware or layered software for server platforms based on the Intel platform for communications infrastructure, the company says. It is also used to port applications such as deep-packet inspection to Intel architecture-based platforms like WIN SoNIC.
WIN SoNIC can be used with Wind River Linux, plus software developed by 6WIND, Radisys, and Tieto, specifically for the Intel platform.
