IDT PCI Express Switching Solution Selected by H3C for High-End Security Solutions

Optimized System Interconnect Device with Feature-Rich Architecture
SAN JOSE, Calif., March 3, 2009IDT® (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; NASDAQ: IDTI), a leading provider of mixed signal semiconductor solutions that enable the digital media experience, today announced that H3C Technologies Co., Limited, one of the leading global suppliers of IP-based products and solutions, has selected the IDT 89HPES48H12 PCI Express® (PCIe®) switching solution for its SecPath high-end security systems.
 
The IDT PCIe switching solution is a 48-lane, 12-port system interconnect switch with an advanced architecture that supports multiple simultaneously transactions between system processors and intelligent I/O peripherals to provide guaranteed line rate throughput and deterministic latency. The high-performance switching solution enables the H3C Firewall/VPN system to support 40Gbps data throughput while simultaneously protecting a network from external security attacks to guarantee internal network security, and implement URL filtering and application layer filtering.
 
Additionally, the H3C security solution leverages IDT system interconnect solution’s rich suite of features, including integrated support for multi-processor failover to ensure system reliability and two virtual channels enabling direct support for quality of service.
 
IDT is pleased to be chosen by H3C as the system interconnect device for their high-performance SecPath security solutions,” said Mario Montana, vice president and general manager for the IDT Enterprise Computing Division. “We worked closely with H3C to understand their demanding needs when defining our family of system interconnect switching solutions.”
 
“The IDT PCI Express switch we have chosen best fits our requirements for a high throughput, low latency and efficient connectivity between intelligent system elements. With high switch port density and scalable, feature-rich, flexible architecture in a simple board layout, H3C is able to achieve — and deliver — the superior performance of the high-end security systems that enterprises and Internet data centers have come to expect from H3C,” said Zhang Guangming, product manger at H3C Co Ltd. “We are also very pleased with the local technical support from IDT in helping us build a new PCIe-based system platform in line with our time-to-market requirements.”
