Industry's leading open source router now runs on the world's most efficient multi-processor platform

LAS VEGAS, May 19 -- INTEROP -- Ubicom(R), Inc., a leading provider of networking and multimedia processor solutions, announced today the availability of a Linux-based OpenWRT compliant router platform that runs on the Ubicom IP7100 Router Gateway Evaluation board. At Interop 2009, the company will demonstrate the platform that allows OEMs and ODMs to rapidly develop router products for consumer, SOHO, and SMB markets.

The platform includes comprehensive reference router software that is easily customizable. The reference router software also comes with Ubicom's StreamEngine(TM) QoS technology that can automatically classify and prioritize latency-sensitive traffic. Ubicom's rigorous software quality assurance that includes regression, white box and black box testing has been applied to this platform to ensure quality.

"We are excited to be working with Ubicom on a truly unique multi-processing platform. The combination of the Ubicom hardware and OpenWRT platform presents a fascinating glimpse into the future of open source consumer friendly devices; we look forward to future collaboration," said Mike Baker from OpenWRT.

The solution is powered by Ubicom's IP7100 series network processor and includes four Gigabit LAN ports, a Gigabit WAN port, a USB 2.0 port, two MPCI connectors, and a UART console. The IP7100 network CPU can cost effectively deliver up to 1 Gbps of system level performance and features networking interfaces such as RGMII, PCI, and T1/E1, along with on-chip hardware acceleration engines for QoS, VPN, and voice codecs. Tools for configuration enable developers to quickly configure the processor interfaces and functionality, while the GDB debugger can be used to step through code. The advanced Profiler tool leverages the ability of the IP7100 processors to run a profile thread real time non-intrusively and collect rich profile data such as CPU and memory utilization per function.

The Ubicom IP7100 family of network processors featuring the UBICOM32(TM) multithreaded architecture can be clocked at frequencies up to 600MHz. When compared with a single-threaded RISC processor, designers can expect two to three times the performance at the same frequency for most applications. Designers can also use a wide range of interface options via Ubicom's software I/O technology.
