IDT Search Accelerators to Help Centec Networks Deliver Converged Services for Metro Ethernet Applications

IDT Search Accelerator Family Enables Joint Customers to Receive Higher Bandwidth and Network Intelligence across Multiple Centec Platforms

 

SAN JOSE, Calif., - May 06, 2008 – IDT® (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; NASDAQIDTI), a leading provider of essential mixed signal semiconductor solutions that enrich the digital media experience, today announced that its search accelerator has been exclusively chosen by Centec Networks, for use in its E300M and E600M series routing switches which are used in conjunction with their CTC6024 24G advanced packet processing engine. Centec, an innovative supplier of metro Ethernet technology and turnkey solutions, has chosen the IDT search accelerator to help provide the higher bandwidth and network intelligence needed for next generation converged voice, data, and video services in the metro access and aggregation markets.  
 
The IDT search accelerator seamlessly interfaces with the CTC6024 Packet Processing Engine for high performance support of IPv4/IPv6, L2/L3 virtual private networks (VPNs), and multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) applications. Customers seeking a complete turnkey solution can utilize the Centec E300M and E600M series routing switches which are feature-rich, high performance Ethernet switching products to fulfill the needs of broadband access, metro Ethernet, wireless backhaul, enterprise and IP video network requirements. The IDT devices’ ability to offload critical packet header processing tasks makes it especially well suited for Centec’s next generation platforms. Specifically, Centec is utilizing the IDT search accelerators’ ability to deliver complex traffic with the higher reliability, quality of service and added security needed for the expected increase in bandwidth in the next generation metro aggregation and access layer. 
 
IDT was a clear choice to provide the performance we need for our next generation switches and routers. Because of the ever-increasing importance of both security as well as bandwidth, the search accelerator is a critical fit for us,” said James Sun, CEO of Centec Networks. “The performance and support we received working with IDT reinforces that we are two companies who are continuing to address the ever-increasing needs of next generation networks.”
 
“We are pleased to have Centec be a part of the search accelerator ecosystem. We continue to see a growing trend in our customer base toward designing platforms that feature ‘intelligent access’, creating the need for classification decisions to be made at rates that were previously unachievable,” said Derek Dicker, vice president and general manager for the IDT IP Co-processor division. “The combination of the industry-leading IDT search accelerator product family and the Centec metro Ethernet family provide a solution-set well positioned to address this trend and, as a result, delivering a high performance, low power, and cost effective offering with headroom for the future.”
