OCTEON Multi-Core Processor Family

Multi-Core MIPS64 processors


The Cavium OCTEON family of Multi-Core MIPS64 processors is the industry’s most scalable, highest-performance, and lowest-power solution for intelligent networking applications ranging from 100Mbps to 200Gbps. These software-compatible processors, with one to forty-eight cnMIPS cores on a single chip, integrate next-generation networking I/Os along with the most advanced security, storage, and application hardware acceleration, offering unprecedented throughput and programmability for the Layer 2 through Layer 7 processing requirements of intelligent networks.

The OCTEON processors are targeted for use in a wide variety of OEM networking and storage equipment, including routers, switches, unified threat management (UTM) appliances, content-aware switches, application-aware gateways, triple-play gateways, WLAN and 3G/4G/5G access and aggregation devices, storage arrays, storage networking equipment, servers, and intelligent NICs.

The OCTEON product family provides a broad range of product lines based upon the distinct performance, feature, and cost requirements of the target equipment. All OCTEON processors are software compatible and supported by industry-standard software tool chains and operating systems. Various product options are available within each OCTEON family to suit the specific needs of each individual application. OCTEON XL acceleration boards are also available, providing the ability to rapidly extend the performance and capabilities of existing appliance systems. OCTEON processors are available in multiple versions to address market specific requirements, including Network Services Processors (NSP), Application Acceleration Processors (AAP), Storage Services Processors (SSP), Secure Communication Processors (SCP) and Communication Processors (CP).
