Marvell has announced what it describes as a high-performance, power-efficient accelerated data path (ADP) solution based on its ARMADA-385 SoC. According to the company, the ARMADA-385 ADP solution promises an improved user experience, higher throughput and greater support for service providers and routers, to address the increasing amount of CPU traffic from the cloud.

With 5Gb/s packet acceleration, the ARMADA-385 ADP is also designed to ensure quality of service (QoS) for existing and future bandwidth demands from wired and wireless 11ac Wave-2 routers and access points. ADP operates transparently and easily integrates with customers' Linux support package; moreover, Linux extensions and security updates are seamlessly supported. Marvell's patented technology allows automatic and efficient learning of the ongoing network traffic without additional installations or software, which differentiates the ARMADA-385 ADP from competing solutions in the wired and wireless space.

The ADP is optimised for Marvell's Wi-Fi, switch and PHY solutions. It offers L2 bridging, Internet protocol version (IPv) 4 and 6 forwarding, Network Address Translation (NAT), 802.1Q virtual LAN, Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) tunnel support, QoS and per-flow statistics and aging, Firewall and IPSec. It services 11ac Wi-Fi routers and access point/extender solutions, and small office/home office (SOHO) security appliances, and fully supports Marvell 1GE and 2.5GE PHYs.

The ARMADA-385 chip is part of Marvell's ARMADA 38x family of embedded processors that is shipping in high volumes on several consumer, service provider, cloud and enterprise platforms. The Marvell ARMADA 38x family claims to provide remarkable scalability, integration and efficiency based on dual-core ARM v7-A at 2GHz to innovative home and enterprise products. It is designed for high-volume products such as network attached storage (NAS), WiFi access point (WAP), surveillance video recorders (DVR/ NVR /Hybrid) and high-performance networking products such as control planes and line cards.
