Ethernity Networks Releases a Modular Programmable Universal Edge Platform

Sponsored by Businesswire

(AIM: ENET.L), a leading innovator of comprehensive
networking and security solutions on programmable hardware, today
introduced its ENET Universal Edge Platform (UEP) network appliance, an
edge-optimized low-space, low-power FPGA-based programmable device with
up to 40Gbps of networking capacity and 10Gbps of IPSec security
performance. The UEP’s unique modularity enables the appliance to be
easily adapted for multiple use cases, such as NID, DPU and MDU, and
cell site router.

With its embedded dual-core ARM processor that handles the control
plane, the ENET UEP is ideal as a standalone high-end Network Interface
Device that offers rich routing and IPSec security functionalities. The
ENET UEP contains an interchangeable mezzanine card that enables the
appliance to be designed for XGS-PON connectivity for placement at
cellular base stations, to support for distribution point unit
and multi-dwelling unit deployment, or to support Internet of Things
(IoT) aggregation elements, for example, a radio modem for the IoT
sensor network.

“After many years of delivering Carrier Ethernet over low-cost,
low-power FPGAs, it is exciting to have customers requesting that we
apply our field-proven expertise and patented technology to a
comprehensive solution for the network edge,” said Shavit Baruch, VP of
R&D at Ethernity Networks. “The ENET UEP is the perfect application for
our 5G, mobile backhaul and Ethernet access products as a complement to
our customers’ solutions in the central office.”

The main board of the ENET UEP comes with two SFP+ interfaces that can
be equipped with 10GbE or XGS-PON transceivers, and an FPGA equipped
with Ethernity’s ENET Flow Processor, implementing a complete Carrier
Ethernet switch, hierarchical QoS, router, IPSec, and optional XGS-PON

The default ENET UEP offers 8 x 1Gb RJ45 ports in the mezzanine card,
but can be designed to support, enterprise Power over Ethernet
(PoE) solutions, radio interfaces, or additional connectivity via
GbE/10GbE. The ENET UEP also comes with a unique PCIe connection to any
standard server, enabling it to be used for NFVI acceleration.

“With the rise of 5G and IoT as well as increased demands on enterprise
WANs, there is a need for edge platforms that provide efficient, secure
and cost-effective high-speed connectivity. The Ethernity ENET UEP is
one such platform, and the flexibility offered by the PCIe connection to
a standard server allows it to act as viable accelerator to NFV
workloads at the edge,” said Roy Chua, Founder and Principal at research
and analyst firm AvidThink.
