NXP and FatPipe Networks Collaborate to Deliver SD-WAN Solution

Industry-leading SD-WAN solution now available on Layerscape multi-core Arm®-based processors

Taipei, May 28, 2019 (COMPUTEX 2019) – NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) and FatPipe Networks, the inventor and multiple patents holder of software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) technology, today announced that FatPipe’s SD-WAN client for branch routers has been ported to NXP’s Layerscape family of 64-bit network processors.  This means that operators and enterprise customers now have a broader range of price, power and performance points to choose from when selecting branch router hardware for their SD-WAN requirements.

SD-WAN is a specific application of software-defined networking (SDN) technology applied to WAN connections such as broadband internet, 4G, LTE, or MPLS. It connects enterprise networks — including branch offices and data centers — over large geographic distances. SD-WAN enables enterprises to reduce their dependence on proprietary hardware and balance their use of less expensive internet connectivity with more expensive, fixed access circuits such as MPLS.

“This announcement underscores the growing ecosystem of enterprise customer premise solutions supporting our Arm-based Layerscape multi-core processor family,” commented Noy Kucuk, Vice President, Digital Networking at NXP. “We are excited to be working with FatPipe to deliver an expanded value proposition to customers.”

“We are excited to partner with NXP to offer the first SD-WAN solution available on an Arm-based processor. This demonstrates the flexibility and processor independence of FatPipe technology,” added Dr. Ragula Bhaskar, CEO, FatPipe Networks. “Our cooperation with NXP will enable a greater choice of solutions for our customers addressing the multi-function uCPE solutions for providers, enterprises and retail. The integrated platform offers improved performance for intelligent edge at remote offices and branch offices.”

NXP’s Layerscape series processors built on Arm® core technology extends performance to the smallest form factor— from power-constrained single-core networking all the way up to high-performance 16-core devices supporting 100Gbps throughput. NXP will demonstrate a variety of Layerscape platforms to invited customers during the Computex event in Taipei, 28th May – 1st June.
