Achronix and MoSys Partner to Target 5G Wireless and Broadband Networking Acceleration

Achronix | October 28, 2021

Achronix Semiconductor Corporation, a leader in high-performance FPGAs and embedded FPGA IP, and MoSys, Inc., a provider of both semiconductor and IP solutions focused on accelerating data intelligence to enable fast, intelligent data access today announced a collaboration to deliver a new class of high-speed, programmable, FPGA-based infrastructure solutions tailored for the 5G wireless core and edge, data center, and broadband wired networks.

The solution will combine Achronix Speedster7t FPGAs with the MoSys Stellar Packet Classification Platform IP to deliver key building blocks needed for high-speed routing, compute and security solutions. 

MoSys Stellar Packet Classification IP utilizes the Achronix Speedster7t FPGA's high-speed GDDR6 memory interfaces to add support for:

  • 100's of millions of look-ups per second
  • Millions of packet classification rules: both access control lists (ACL) and longest prefix match (LPM)
  • Very complex, 10+ tuple look-ups at up to 480b TCAM-style rules
  • The MoSys Blazar Acceleration Engine ICs can also be easily coupled to Speedster7t FPGAs to add:
  • In-memory computing capabilities using 25G SerDes lanes
  • Up to 1Gb of high-speed memory to complement and expand the on-board FPGA SRAM by up to five times.

MoSys IP, together with Achronix FPGAs, can offload both high-end servers and multi-terabit switch designs to extend functionality and capacity as well as reduce latency for critical look-up functions, all at much lower power when compared to CPU-only based solutions. Combining Achronix Speedster7t FPGAs and MoSys Stellar Packet Classification IP will improve the performance of a wide range of applications and services for cloud data center operators, 5G mobile telecom service providers, government, and research organizations.

With the first Speedster7t device now shipping, the 7t1500 provides:

  • 692k look-up-tables (LUTs)
  • 195 Mb of memory
  • Four 400G Ethernet interfaces
  • Two PCIe Gen5 interfaces
  • Eight GDDR6 memory interfaces
  • High-bandwidth 2D network on chip (2D NoC)

The Speedster7t family are the only FPGAs with a 2D NoC which helps to support high-speed data transfers from external data interfaces to the FPGA's internal logic, delivering a total bandwidth of greater than 20 Tbps.

Steve Mensor, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, at Achronix Semiconductor, said, "Achronix is excited to partner with MoSys, Inc. to provide high-performance routing and security solutions to our global customer base. MoSys's industry-leading packet classification solutions combined with our Speedster7t FPGAs create the ideal platform for the most demanding data acceleration applications."

"Achronix Speedster7t FPGAs are ideally suited to hosting our very high-speed look-up IP. Now, 5G UPF core and edge routing solutions using LPM look-ups and security solutions, including network firewalls and anti-DDoS applications can use complex access control lists to process traffic at unprecedented performance levels,The Achronix architecture is truly optimized for on- and off-chip networking and, by combining their FPGAs with our Stellar Packet Classification IP and software, will bring a compelling solution to our shared customers in the networking and communications markets."

Dan Lewis, CEO of MoSys, Inc.

Prosimo and AWS Deliver Innovative New Services to Simplify Cloud Networking

Prosimo | December 03, 2021

Prosimo, the Application Experience Infrastructure company, today announced new cloud networking capabilities building on top of Amazon Web Services (AWS) new innovations, to further simplify hybrid and multi-cloud networking. The Prosimo Application eXperience Infrastructure (AXI) platform provides cloud-native integrations for customers that want to build an elastic and scalable transit with AWS Cloud WAN for cross-region connectivity. In addition, integration with AWS Marketplace for Containers Anywhere enables customers to deploy Prosimo AXI edges through a single AWS portal for customers across their hybrid architecture. Enterprises require a secure and optimized network transit that uses cloud-native constructs and auto-scales as the footprint grows when business requirements change and works consistently across different cloud regions, edge locations and co-locations. “AWS is delighted to work closely with Prosimo as we share a common vision in helping customers simplify and automate cloud networking to support distributed workforces and digital transformation strategies,” said Chris Grusz, Director of Business Development, AWS Marketplace. “This work delivers tightly integrated services that leverage Prosimo AXI for comprehensive hybrid and multi-cloud networking with industry-leading cloud services from AWS to simplify the onramp, migration and management of the enterprise journey in the cloud of our customers.” Due to the heterogeneous nature of enterprise cloud adoption, hybrid architectures and multi-cloud networks are becoming increasingly complex. A consistent, reliable and secure experience across business critical and latency-sensitive applications for users in any location are table stakes for enterprises to support distributed workforces and deliver superior customer experiences. Furthermore, as more organizations leverage cloud-native architectures to modernize application frameworks and deliver applications faster, a simple, elastic and scalable solution is required for ‘application to application’ networking. Prosimo AXI is an autonomous multi-cloud networking solution built on cloud-native constructs that offers comprehensive observability with ML-insight driven recommendations and orchestration. Prosimo AXI gives enterprises fine-grained control over routing for optimized performance of applications and the ability to create policies based on a Zero Trust framework for security. “Our work with AWS makes it easy and seamless for any enterprise to simplify and realize autonomous cloud networking at any stage of the multi-cloud journey from hybrid cloud, multi-cloud and to the edge,We are ecstatic to be working closely with AWS on go-to-market, collaborating on product integrations and delivering compelling new services to customers.” Ramesh Prabagaran, CEO and co-founder of Prosimo Managing segmented network mapping to higher level business constructs based on AWS Cloud WAN provides the building blocks for a simpler networking architecture. Customers can now build an elastic and scalable transit network that can be orchestrated by the Prosimo AXI platform. The Prosimo App Transit provides optimal network layer segmentation as well as cross-region routing to seamlessly connect any application in the public cloud or on-premises infrastructure. Prosimo AXI edges enable enterprises to define fine-grained policies on top of AWS Cloud WAN mapping to their user groups and application endpoints. “With these new features and functionality on the AXI Platform, Prosimo will be ideally suited to meet our goals: enable modern infrastructure capabilities using newer AWS networking constructs such as Cloud WAN, built-in observability for applications, and remove as much complexity as possible,” said Kevin Paige, CISO, Flexport. In addition, the new AWS Marketplace for Containers Anywhere integration enables customers to deploy AXI edges through a single AWS portal, for orchestration of the entire transit infrastructure in their hybrid architectures, delivering a better Day 0 experience. The Prosimo AXI platform leverages cloud-native connectivity constructs, enabling customers to orchestrate Transit Gateway, Virtual Private Cloud peering and PrivateLink and now AWS Cloud WAN. With Prosimo AXI, customers can also easily migrate to the preferred cloud native networking option including AWS Cloud WAN and create granular and contextual policies while providing a fast, secure and frictionless on-demand application experience for users globally without any disruption to end users. About Prosimo: Prosimo delivers simplified multi-cloud infrastructure for distributed enterprise cloud journeys. Companies innovate faster and remain in control with the Prosimo integrated stack. This stack combines cloud networking, performance, security, observability, and cost management—all powered by data insights and machine learning models with autonomous cloud networking to reduce complexity and risk. Cloud-forward enterprises, including F100, have adopted Prosimo to successfully roll out revenue-generating applications, improve operational efficiency, and accelerate positive business outcomes. Prosimo is venture-backed by marquee investors such as General Catalyst and WRVI Capital.
