Cavium Networks and ProSyst Partner to Provide Reference Solutions for Service Provider Deployed Digital Home Gateways

Expanding the Cavium Networks ECONA Platform Ecosystem, ProSyst adds OSGi Platform

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California and Cologne, Germany June 1, 2010 ProSyst Software GmbH, an OSGi pioneer, and Cavium Networks (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications, and the digital home, today announced a strategic partnership to co-market optimized OSGi Alliance SoC solutions to networking and telecommunications customers worldwide. The companies will align long-term product roadmaps and ProSyst will commercially support Cavium's ECONA™ family of ARM processors. ProSyst’s OSGi stack is now available on Cavium’s ECONA CNS3XXX platform.

The ECONA CNS3XXX family of ARM-based energy efficient processors offers single and dual ARM11 MPCore™ processors, a rich set of integrated hardware accelerators and a range of I/Os for glueless voice, video and data connectivity. Sophisticated power management techniques enable super low-power operation starting at less than 1 watt. The ECONA CNS3XXX family is targeted for applications including FTTH broadband gateways, network attached storage appliances, multimedia picture frames, media and print servers, IP cameras and wireless access points.

"The combined Cavium, ProSyst relationship is strategic in enabling the OSGi markets to develop home and fixed-mobile convergence services," said Sridhar Gollapudi, Senior Director of Marketing, Connected Home and Office Group at Cavium Networks. "Together, ProSyst and Cavium will help our customers get to market faster with a highly optimized solution that spans the breadth of Cavium's processors and ProSyst´s embedded software portfolio.”

"Coupling the ProSyst mBS OSGi product and services with the Cavium Networks ECONA family of ARM processors provides an ideal platform enabling customers to consistently get to market faster with superior, commercially supported OSGi solutions," said Daniel Schellhoss, Executive VP at ProSyst. "We are very pleased that yet another leading company like Cavium Networks has selected our technology."

ProSyst´s mBS Smart Home is a software stack containing ProSyst´s implementation of the latest OSGi specification R4.2 (Core and Compendium) which is highly optimized for the use in commercial embedded products. The tight integration with the underlining operation system allows sophisticated resource management, reliability, and recovery on errors, which are unique on the market for OSGi compatible software.
ProSyst’s mBS Smart Home SDK comes with a rich collection of Eclipse-based tools for developing and optimizing OSGi applications and a Validation/Test environment.

Cavium Networks will be showcasing this reference solution in suite #1040 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel during the Computex 2010 conference being held in Taipei, Taiwan from June 1 – 5.
