Harbour Networks Selects IDT Network Search Engines to Power Router and Switch Products

IDT Devices Being Used in 10 Different Cards Across Three Harbour Network Product Families

San JOSE, Calif., September 21, 2005 IDT™ (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; NASDAQ:  IDTI) a leading communications IC company and the leading provider of network search engines (NSEs), today announced that Harbour Networks has selected its 75K62134 and 75K72234 NSEs to deliver leading-edge features and services in its Power Hammer and Net Hammer Series Routers and Big Hammer Series Switches.  The IDT 75K62134 NSE was the industry’s first device with a glue-less integrated Network Processor Forum (NPF) Look-Aside (LA-1) interface to industry-leading network processor units (NPUs).  The 75K72234 NSE was the industry’s first monolithic NSE in an 18-Mbit configuration with dual NPF LA-1 interfaces.

 

Harbour Networks is a leading provider of IP-based, next-generation data networking equipment.  The PowerHammer Series of Routers supports 10G routing in carrier-class backbone IP networks and broadband IP MAN core network applications.  The BigHammer Series of Switches is a next-generation 40G platform that provides maximum performance, high reliability, intelligence, strong security and high port density in carrier-class MAN and LAN applications.  Harbour Networks recently announced its router and switch products were awarded the “IPv6 Ready” logo by the IPv6 Forum after passing a series of strict tests.

 

According to Harbour Networks, in evaluating potential partners, the company looks for vendors that demonstrate the ability to foster a long-term relationship through the constant delivery of value-added products that map to critical functions within their applications, both now and in the future.  The IDT 75K62134 was the first device to provide Harbour with a fully integrated LA-1 NSE solution, and the IDT 75K72234 further enhanced Harbour’s applications by providing a dual LA-1 interface solution and a common software API, as well as 250 million searches per second (MSPS) performance.

 

“The IDT LA-1 NSE family is best in class with glue-less interface devices with superior performance and the best software and hardware development package that seamlessly integrates into multiple NPU reference platforms today,” said Dave Cech, director of marketing for the IDT IP co-processor division.  “We are very proud to be a part of Harbour Networks’ solutions, helping them achieve ‘IPv6 Ready’ status.”

 

The IDT 75K62134 and 75K72234 NSEs include a set of Dynamic Database ManagementÔ features and sophisticated instruction capabilities that result in up to 70-percent power savings when compared to alternative solutions.  Additionally, the ability to offload searching tasks from the network processor provides extra headroom, permitting the network processor to provide value-added, revenue-generating services such as traffic management, security and accounting.
