6WIND’s packet processing software is optimized for Tilera’s TILEPro64 Processor

6WIND has announced the release of it 6WINDGate software with optimized support for the TILEPro64 processor family from Tilera Corporation. 6WINDGate enables the development of high-performance, energy-efficient TILEPro64-based equipment for cloud networking and mobile infrastructure applications.

The 6WINDGate packet processing software exploits the energy-efficient, “manycore” TILEPro64 processor architecture to deliver IP forwarding performance of 580,000 packets per second per Tile on a processor running at 800MHz (64-byte packets). This per-Tile IP forwarding performance scales linearly with the number of tiles running 6WINDGate until the platform achieves full wire speed. Remaining tiles can be used to run additional value-added networking features or applications.

6WIND states that by maintaining full compatibility with standard Operating System APIs, 6WINDGate enables Tilera customers to quickly develop new applications and/or migrate existing software from another platform, thereby accelerating their time-to-market while reducing their schedule risk.

6WINDGate support for the TILEPro64 processor family is available now. For more information please visit www.6wind.com/.
