Cavium to Showcase Wireless Infrastructure Innovations at Mobile World Congress 2015

Solution demos Covering Cloud Data Centers, NFV, Cloud-RAN, vEPC, Wireless Core, Macro Cells and Small cells

BARCELONA, Spain, – Mobile World Congress - Cavium, Inc., (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for enterprise, data center, wired and wireless networking, will showcase innovative solutions spanning wireless infrastructure from the edge to the core, during Mobile World Congress 2015. Live demonstrations will include Cavium's industry leading ThunderX™, OCTEON®, OCTEON Fusion® processors and LiquidIO® adapters.

Cavium continues to extend its leadership position in wireless infrastructure products with key technology and product announcements at MWC 2015, in areas ranging from CRAN to MacroCells to encryption for transport as well as fronthaul.

Show Highlights and Demonstrations

Cavium executives will be available to discuss the broad range of solutions, including the company's most recent announcements. Product demonstrations will be shown in Cavium's booth located in Hall 2, Stand 2F60.

• Cloud-RAN - Full CRAN Demo on ThunderX ARMv8-A based optimized COTS server working in conjunction with Smart Radio Heads. This demo will also be on display in the ARM® booth (at Hall 6 Stand 6C10).

• vEPC - Cavium will demonstrate vEPC (virtualized LTE core network) running on the ThunderX ARMv8-A processor.

 • 100Gbps IPsec using OpenDataPlane™ - Cavium will demonstrate its OCTEON III reaching new performance milestones - processing over 100Gbps of IPsec traffic on a single chip while using OpenDataPlane (ODP) APIs, meeting the demand for massive increases in secure wireless transport throughput for 4G and upcoming 5G infrastructure. The OCTEON product family provides a consistent architecture that scales from one core to 48 and supports an extensive, broad software ecosystem, and is a widely deployed processor family for communications products.

 • NFV Service Chaining - Cavium's LiquidIO and Qosmos® ixEngine® joint demo will show intelligent service chaining of VNFs (virtual network functions), where network traffic is directed through service chains utilizing application intelligence in addition to user information. The Qosmos ixEngine performs Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) based application classification, provides application intelligence to vSwitch (OpenVSwitch). LiquidIO offloads application-aware vSwitching from the server CPU, and preserves server CPU cycles for running VNFs.

 • MontaVista® Linux MV Cloud - MontaVista Software will also be demonstrating Carrier Grade Linux CGE7, MV Cloud and Docker® running on Cavium ThunderX and OCTEON III processors in Hall 7 Stand 7N77.
