Cavium Networks and Effnet Announce Collaboration

NXTCOMM, Las Vegas, NV, US and Stockholm, Sweden, June 16, 2008 – Cavium Networks (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications, storage, wireless, and security applications, and Effnet AB, a leading provider of header compression software for wireless and fixed networks, today announced that Cavium and Effnet are collaborating to make the Effnet ROHC™ header compression software available on Cavium Networks’ OCTEON™ MIPS64® multicore processors. Cavium Networks is presenting OCTEON on the NXTCOMM show floor in meeting room MSL4204.

The Effnet ROHC™ is the market leading software solution for Robust Header Compression based on RFC3095, as well as other compression standards used in 3G, 4G, LTE, WiMAX and satellite networks. Effnet ROHC™ is designed for easy and rapid portability with highly structured software interfaces. That makes it suitable for integrating into handsets, customer premise equipment, base stations, gateways and other wireless infrastructure equipment. The intelligent pattern detection algorithms ensure maximum compression, combined with a latency tolerant capability. This makes Effnet ROHC™ a leading choice in wireless and satellite network deployments. Porting Effnet ROHC™ to Cavium’s market leading OCTEON Multi-Core processor creates a Header Compression solution of unparalleled performance and scalability. OEM’s using the OCTEON Processor will now be able to license Robust Header Compression Software from Effnet AB, for immediate use in their designs.

The Cavium Networks OCTEON family of Multi-Core MIPS64 processors offers industry leading performance, scalability, low-power and advanced hardware acceleration for intelligent networking applications ranging from 100Mbps to full-duplex 10Gbps. These software-compatible processors, with one to sixteen cnMIPS cores on a single chip, integrate next-generation networking interfaces, memory controller, advanced hardware acceleration for packet processing, QoS, TCP, multi-core scaling, pattern matching, compression/decompression, storage and security with latest processor peripherals in a single chip. Additionally the OCTEON processor family provides leading throughput and general purpose programmability for Layer 2 through Layer 7 processing required for building next-generation intelligent networks.

“Cavium’s market leading OCTEON processors are being used by multiple wireless infrastructure vendors,” said Amer Haider, Director of Strategic Marketing and Ecosystem Development at Cavium Networks. “Effnet is a market leader in header compression technology with over 10 years of experience and an impressive Tier-1 customer list. We are pleased to collaborate with Effnet to offer the Effnet ROHC™ software on the OCTEON multicore processor family.”

“Our porting effort went quite smoothly and we are very pleased that our code could be ported to the Cavium OCTEON Multicore processors with minimum efforts. This proves the great portability of Effnet’s products,” said Joakim Enerstam, Deputy Managing Director, Effnet AB. “We have seen OCTEON in multiple Tier-1 wireless infrastructure designs and look forward to supporting the high-performance and low-power OCTEON processor family.”
