Marvell released the Prestera DX packet processors that enable secure and power efficient solutions for a new generation of access networks. The DX3300 and the DX3200 families are designed to simplify and secure these converged access deployments. Faster adoption of 10GbE-enabled servers are driving the need for DX8200 family of packet processors that offer compelling options for networking in the cost sensitive environments of the small and medium enterprises (SME) core and aggregation.

"Building on the company's long heritage in networking, this release brings to market platforms and innovative solutions for 10Gbit and gigabit networking," said Ramesh Sivakolundu, VP CSIBU at Marvell. "The Prestera DX portfolio of devices, coupled with a total solutions approach, continues to offer a variety of switching solutions to enable secure, feature-rich and cost sensitive access in campus and SMB networks across the globe."

The DX8216 packet processor is a highly optimised solution for 10GbE server connectivity in the SME environment. Coupled with Alaska-X family of 10GBase-T PHYs, these devices are designed to enable power efficient systems for that application. Advanced eBridging technology enables a host of virtualisation capabilities, as well as OpenFlow 1.4 support.

The DX3300-based systems enable feature rich and secure GbE and 10GbE access networking platforms. Armed with dual-core on-chip ARM CPUs, the DX3300 and the DX3200 families are capable of meeting the demanding access needs of the carrier, industrial and campus networks by enabling host management and embedding additional value-added security and monitoring applications or off-loading complex services like or OAM, PTP or DPI.

Native integration of PHYs enables direct attached copper or fibre-based 10GbE network connections, as well as multi-system stacking. Support for the IEEE 802.1BR tunnelling schemes also enable centralised management architectures and a port extender model of deployment in the enterprise.

The DX3200 family of devices continues to address the needs for cost-sensitive Gigabit Ethernet access for unmanaged and intelligent access networking solutions by providing a power efficient design without compromising on the full complement of the features needed in such networks. A simple and efficient programming model enabled by Marvell's Core Prestra Software Suite is expected to reduce design complexity and system development schedules while accelerating network and service deployment.

To shorten system manufacturers' design cycles and accelerate time-to-market, Marvell provides complete development platforms and reference designs with device drivers, schematics, layout files and other documentation.
