GE Intelligent Platforms is represented in Australia and New Zealand by Metromatics .  

GE Intelligent Platforms introduces the WANic 6354 intelligent high performance packet processor designed for demanding high volume IP network applications.  

Based on the latest multi-core Cavium OCTEON II CN6335-AAP application acceleration processor, its combination of advanced technologies allows for higher speed networks and for the inclusion of advanced security functionality in those networks.  

With its comprehensive development package designed to minimise time-to-revenue, the WANic 6354 delivers a sustainable competitive advantage to customers.  

Network applications in which the WANic 6354 IP packet processor can be deployed include session border control, secure access, network address translation (NAT), traffic management, firewall, deep packet inspection (DPI) and lawful intercept, secure IP communications, encryption, packet filters as well as network monitoring and testing.  

Rapid growth in search engines, cloud computing, Internet-based retailing, Web 2.0 mobile devices and online gaming are driving network traffic at an unprecedented rate.  

At the same time concerns about the security and integrity of online communication are uppermost in many customers’ minds, as is the need to manage available bandwidth to deliver optimum customer service.  

The WANic 6354 packet processor is designed to play a central role in these networks, providing a highly cost-effective solution that offloads network processing and enables maximum network throughput.  

The new OCTEON II processor delivers up to four times the performance of its predecessor, and is designed to offer more functionality as well as faster speeds and handle higher traffic flows using the same or less power than its predecessors, enabling the WANic 6354 packet processor to give customers greater performance per watt and greater performance per dollar.  

It allows applications to efficiently support greater network traffic by offloading traffic processing and enables customers to enhance their products with network security, encryption and compression support in the form of server blades, appliances or rack-mount servers.  

Support for IEEE 1588 and hardware timestamping are provided by the WANic 6354 for Ethernet synchronisation and packet ordering.  

The WANic 6354 supports high-speed communications via a 4-lane PCI express Generation 2 bus interface to the host. Four front panel line interface ports with SFP connectors support IEEE 10/100/1000BaseT Gigibit Ethernet as well as short- and long-reach optical connectivity.  

GE Intelligent Platforms is an experienced high-performance technology company and global provider of software, hardware, services and expertise in automation and embedded computing.
