GE Fanuc Delivers First NEBS-compliant PCI-X Packet Processors

Debuting as the first Network Equipment Building System (NEBS)-compliant PCI-X packet processors, the four-port Gigabit Ethernet WANic 3850 and WANic 3860 handle applications such as session border control, secure access, network address translation, traffic management, and firewall. A unique advantage, the devices include either twisted-pair SFP or short-range SX fiber SFP transceivers. The WANic 3850 employs a Cavium OCTEON 12-core, 500-MHz CN3850-SCP secure communications processor while the WANic 3860 features a Cavium OCTEON 16-core, 500-MHz CN-3860-NSP network services processor. The WANic 3860 also includes 256 MB of RLDRAM. Both processors support multiple front-panel configuration options including four ports of Gigabit Ethernet supporting IEEE 1000BaseT or four l ports of Gigabit Ethernet supporting IEEE 1000BaseSX via SFP transceivers.
