NITROX® PX SECURITY PROCESSOR FAMILY
The Cavium NITROX PX Security Processor family is fully compatible with the market leading NITROX Security Processor product line. The NITROX PX processors combine cryptographic acceleration with the latest security algorithms providing an ideal platform for the next-generation of security applications. The NITROX PX family includes two variations:
  1. CN16XX family with PCI-Express interface
  2. CN15XX family with PCI-X interface support
NITROX PX products are software compatible with the Cavium NITROX III and NITROX Lite family of security processors.

Additionally, the CN15XX family is hardware compatible with the NITROX Lite CN10XX Product Family.

NITROX PX processors are highly scaleable and deliver performance ranging from 500Mbps to 2.5 Gbps for full IPsec protocol or SSL offload, 1024bit exponent RSA from 4K to 17K RSA operations per second, enabling an optimal solution for applications such as:
  • Application Delivery Controller (ADC)
  • WAN Optimization
  • SSL, Compression, Virtualization
  • Server Offload - Web, Mail, Search
  • Integrated VPN/Firewall appliances
  • UTM Gateway, Routers
  • Load Balancers/L4+ Switches
  • Wireless LAN and WAN equipment
  • Security Telco gateways
  • SAN appliances
  • 3G & 4G/LTE infrastructure equipment

For applications requiring 5 Gbps to 40 Gbps or that also need compression or virtualization support see our NITROX III family.
