Marvell Technology Group Ltd has revealed Questflo 98TX1100, a static random access memory (SRAM)-based network search engine that features up to eight million data flows. The Questflo product line claims to deliver four times the capacity at 1/3 the power consumption of other chips.

The 98TX1100 caters to the needs of next-generation networking equipment to support the growth of mobile devices, Internet of Things (IoT) and automotive connectivity as today's traditional ternary content addressable memory (TCAM)-based solutions have failed to address these future scaling requirements of both bandwidth and service density from a system cost, power, form-factor and reliability perspective.

Applications for the 98TX1100 include carrier and enterprise service/edge routers, security appliances, network probes, data centre switches, servers, load-balancers and new classes of software defined network (SDN) and network functions virtualisation (NFV) platforms.

The Questflo 98TX1100 family of network search co-processors is able to manage, deliver and secure up to eight million service and virtualised flows with deterministic throughput and latency regardless of bandwidth, packet size and search lengths. The 98TX1100 is typically used with a network packet processor featuring standard high-speed Interlaken (ILK-LA) interfaces, such as Marvell's Xelerated family of programmable network processors, Prestera family of Ethernet packet processors or any customised ASIC or FPGA-based solution to scale the level of service processing beyond what can be supported and implemented in a single device.

The Questflo 98TX1100 is currently sampling along with the evaluation platform and SDK. A complete platform development kit consisting of Marvell's Xelerated 400Gbit/s wire-speed network processor (NPU) and ARMADA XP, 1.6GHz, quad-core, ARM-based embedded control processor is also available.
