NEXCOM has introduced network security appliances utilizing Freescale processors. The Freescale QorIQ™ platforms offer all the building blocks for innovation in a highly integrated architecture that includes multiple cores, accelerators, security and more. The QorIQ communications platforms feature value-, mid- and high-performance processors. Our first Freescale QorIQ™ network security appliance utilizes Freescale's flagship QorIQ T4240 communications processor. The T4 series processor is an SoC platform delivering exceptional performance per watt. T4240's twelve dual-threaded Power Architecture® e6500 cores running to 1.8GHz and over 50Gb/s of Ethernet connectivity with advanced packet handling acceleration make it a perfect fit for high-performance integrated data and control plane applications. Integrated pattern matching and the security algorithm accelerator benefit network security applications with high throughput requirements. Collaborating with Freescale, NEXCOM plans to unveil more network security appliances based on QorIQ™ communications processors in the near future.
