Shipping Engineering Samples [Nov.2016]

An extensible low-latency router for research on IoT, industrial applications, and access networks.

  • Ultra-low latency of 2.5 microseconds
  • 12 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces
  • Supporting Synchronous Ethernet, i.e., frequency synchronization between network nodes to prevent packet loss
  • Xilinx FPGA-based low-latency data path combined with Intel Atom processor for control plane processing
  • FPGA design can be extended using various HDLs, Atom processor runs standard Linux
  • SDN support through OpenFlow
