Xilinx Inc. disclosed that Mangrove Systems, a provider of metro and access network infrastructure, has selected Xilinx 90nm cost-optimized Spartan-3 and Virtex-II Pro FPGA devices for use in its latest Piranha and Barracuda MetroMPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) platforms.

Combining metro Ethernet forum services, MPLS pseudowires, multi-service support and new efficient data-over-transport standards, the Mangrove product family enable carriers to transform existing SONET and SDH infrastructure into efficient, packet-aware metro and access networks.

Mangrove selected Spartan-3 FPGAs based on an exhaustive evaluation that covered price, performance, packaging that included high I/O count and density along with vendor commitment. Mangrove also chose Xilinx Virtex-II Pro FPGAs with embedded PowerPC processor and Multi Gigabit Transceivers (MGTs) for control plane functions and backplane interconnect.

"The incorporation of Xilinx technology into our MetroMPLS platforms has enabled Mangrove to raise the bar on performance and define a new level of integration for the Metro and Access infrastructure," said Jonathan Reeves, Mangrove president and CEO.
