New T2500 device optimized to meet requirements for 20 Gb/s security processing and 100 Gb/s application recognition

TAIPEI, May 5 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced the LSI(TM) Tarari(R) T2500 content processor, which has been designed to meet the content processing requirements of ultra high-speed, ultra low-latency networking applications. The Tarari T2500 offloads critical security processing and application recognition from the host processor, delivering improved network performance and increased security.

Silicon-based content processors enable security applications to detect intrusions, viruses and other malware at very high speeds with minimal impact on the host processor. In addition, Tarari content processors can be programmed to recognize the data flowing through the network so that specific data types, such as video, can be identified and prioritized over other traffic. As a result, network users can be assured that the data they are downloading is safe, and video users will be able to enjoy a better, uninterrupted viewing experience.

"As the amount of data in the network continues to increase, enterprises and service providers are struggling to scan traffic for security threats and perform application recognition without impacting network performance," said Bob Wheeler, senior analyst at The Linley Group. "The LSI Tarari T2500 content processor helps solve the problems faced by network-equipment OEMs by delivering industry-leading performance without compromising features."

The LSI Tarari T2500 dedicates multiple on-chip resources to significantly reduce latencies and increase single-flow throughput up to 5 Gb/s for improved performance, allowing OEMs to deliver up to 20 Gb/s of security processing or 100 Gb/s of application recognition. It is pin-compatible with existing LSI Tarari T2000 content processors, now includes support for DDR3 memories, and features the PCI Express(R) Gen 2 interface, doubling bus bandwidth. All LSI Tarari T1000, T2000 and T2500 content processors, including the DPI engine embedded in the LSI Axxia(TM) Communication Processor, use a common API and rule syntax, which maximizes code reuse across multiple platforms and applications.

"Securing networks and identifying time-critical traffic, such as video streaming, are both key elements in next-generation enterprise and service provider networks," said Tareq Bustami, director of multicore communication processors, Networking Components Division, LSI. "The innovative architecture deployed in the T2500 content processor provides unprecedented performance and extremely low latency while supporting the most content inspection rules in the industry."

Tarari T2500 content processors will be available in sample quantities in the third quarter of 2010. For additional information, please visit .
