Xelerated, Dune Interoperate

STOCKHOLM and SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Xelerated, the global leader in field-proven Carrier Ethernet ASSP-based chipsets, and Dune Networks, a provider of networking devices for Metro Ethernet, Enterprise and Data Center platforms, today announced that Xelerateds HX300 family of network processors interoperates via SPAUI interface with Petra-line devices of traffic management and fabric access devices from Dune. The companies further announce their joint commitment to deliver interoperability and high-speed designs.

SPAUI is an interface based on the XAUI industry standard. Utilizing this interface, Xelerated’s HX300 family can now interoperate with traffic management and switching fabric solutions from Dune. SPAUI is ideal for dense 10GE Ethernet solutions as it incorporates several extensions that focus on providing 10Gbps applications with speedup for packet headers, full rate 12GE, channelization, packet interleaving, and refined flow control. SPAUI is implementation-friendly, and backwards-compatible with the standard XAUI.

“With the combination of the Petra and HX300 products, Dune and Xelerated have set the industry standard for integration and scalability in Carrier Ethernet designs,” said Bob Wheeler, senior analyst at The Linley Group. “This solution offers both new and existing customers a path to dense GE/10GE line cards as well as 40GE and 100GE solutions.”
