Ethernity Networks is Awarded a key Wire Speed Protocols Interworking Patent

Monday, December 14, 2009

New Patent Extends Ethernity's IP Rights Throughout the Entire Carrier Grade Ethernet Switch Protocol Interworking and Traffic Management Technology

Lod, Israel -- Ethernity Networks Ltd, a leading supplier of Multiservice Fabric Flow Processors for Carrier Grade Ethernet appliances, today announced that it has been awarded patent number 7,620,770 by the US Patent Office for a "Device and method for storing and processing data units". The patent applies to a zero copy mechanism for storing an ingress data unit at the DDR memory unit for purposes of packet re-ordering and traffic management, then retrieving a fetched data unit from the DDR memory for data unit processing, wherein the fetched data unit comprises at least a portion of the ingress data unit, all at wire speed and with single read and write to/from external DDR memory.

The patent applies to any multi service processing over a single fabric engine, such that a single engine can handle TDM, ATM and Ethernet processing without the need to use a dedicated engine for each protocol for the purpose of protocol interworking. Together with inverse multiplexing (EFM bonding, IMA, MLPPP), advanced Traffic Management and any-to-any wire speed protocol interworking, the new patent enables Ethernity to deliver the lowest cost ever platform using single DDR Memory and integrated into ultra low cost FPGA.
