Intilop to Demo Live at Super Computing 2014 Conference, their 16 Thousand TCP & UDP Session Hardware Accelerator targeted towards all Hyper Performance Networking Systems

TCP Core Accelerates an unprecedented number of 16K TCP & UDP Sessions in 77 nanoseconds with 95% TCP throughput, providing 8x – 50x advantage over the legacy Software TCP stack.

The complete Network Accelerator Sub-System with pre-ported and functional ‘Full TCP stack’ features Alpha Data ADM-PCIE-7V3 card and Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA with Intilop’s 6th generation TOE

Milpitas, CA., Nov. 13th, 2014   Intilop, Inc. a pioneer, most respected and recognized leader in providing Ultra-Low latency and Hyper Performance Complex Networking Protocol Accelerators, Mega IP Cores, Systems and Solutions since 2009, will demo live, their 10G bit 16K concurrent-TCP-session Hardware Accelerator Pre-Ported and tested on an Alpha Data ADM-PCIE-7V3 card at SC14. This subsystem with 10G TCP Accelerator (TCP Full Offload Engines) that implements16 Thousand Simultaneous TCP Connections, unlimited continuous connections and Bandwidth of more than 1.1 Gigabyte/sec per port regardless of number of simultaneous or active TCP Sessions. In addition, it delivers the same hyper performance with same Ultra-low latency and Zero Jitter irrespective of number of active connections from 1 - 16384. The demo will show Thousands of TCP Servers and TCP Clients Sending and receiving TCP Traffic at full 10G line rate with 95% bandwidth. This SC14 demonstration can be seen in the Xilinx booth #3903, New Orleans, LA, November 17 – 20, 2014.

Important Benefits:

  • Significant relief in CPU utilization and increase in Workload Performance
  • Unmatched benefits in power reduction, cost and data-center footprint
  • No degradation in performance and predictability for thousands of simultaneous active sessions
  • Competitive solutions degrade dramatically in just after 4 sessions due to s/w components
  • Minimize need for load-balancing

The Alpha Data card features a Xilinx Virtex®-7 VX690T-2 FPGA device.

This deployment-ready, pre-verified solution provides networking OEMs an Ultra-low-latency and Hyper-performance for all networking equipment segments that have to process TCP Protocol. Now clients can accomplish this at line rate which is orders of magnitude faster than processing in TCP software stack, irrespective of whether the stack is running on host CPU or a CPU on a plugged in NIC. Specifically, these TCP & UDP Accelerator are targeted towards the next generation of Cloud Computing, Data Center, Network Security, Telecomm and all other Hyper Performance Network Computing server appliances in government and private enterprise system applications. The FPGA platform offers an ‘Out of the box’ working TCP hardware stacks with unprecedented functionality, ultra small core size, high performance and flexibility. The Full TCP core runs without any CPU involvement through all stages of TCP transactions, including connection set up, data transfer, tcp-retries and connection tear down. The TCP connections maintain the same high throughput and low latency/processing times regardless of number of simultaneous connections in progress. It also implements Full ARP protocol hardware which makes a truly full TCP accelerator that runs without any involvement from the host or local CPU/software. This is a vast difference compared with other leading TCP Accelerator ASICs on various NICs that implement partial TCP Offloads and suffer major performance degradation when handling just 10-20 simultaneous TCP Sessions, not to speak of hundreds or thousands of simultaneous TCP connections. The unprecedented TCP throughput of more than 95% for large and small size payload data transfers on a 10G network, which is 8 – 50 x higher as compared to TCP/IP software running on typical host CPU which is the de-facto standard.

In addition, the whole SOC subsystem containing EMAC & TOE & UOE which only takes up less than 14K Slices/30K LUTs and 2MB BRAM, It also integrates a DDR3 interface. The architectural innovation allows it to automatically switch to DDR when running thousands of TCP sessions. Clients will be able to utilize FPGAs technology to get all of the benefits of TCP hardware acceleration. A complete FPGA board/development Kit is delivered with pretested TOE & EMAC and PHY subsystem which allows customers to start using the TOE core right out of the box. A ‘Super simple’ FIFO based User interface allows customers to also integrate their value add logic in a very short time. It is expected to hasten the adaption of this technology in the vast array of next generation network connected devices.
Their previous 5 generations of Full TCP Accelerators provide up to 256 Simultaneous TCP Connections and have also been available on most FPGA boards/platforms.
As a pioneer, Intilop was the first company to deliver a series of Full TCP Offload Engines on FPGAs in 2009. Their sub 100 ns latency MAC+TOE&UOE are considered a ‘Gold Standard’ by the industry experts. The latency barrier of 100 nanoseconds and throughput of more than 1 G byte/s per port had been set by them since their first 10G Series of TCP engines in 2011. And, now the same performance metrics are provided across all 16 Thousand Simultaneous TCP Sessions.
The highly deterministic performance, reliable and proven ultra-low latency, coupled with customizability offered by the 10G TOE is being effectively applied to gain wire-speed competitive edge by all Networking Equipment makers.
Customers now have a larger variety of cutting edge TCP offload products from Intilop to choose from, when they want to move up in the nanosecond league from the microsecond league. By utilizing the full benefits of pivotal 10G TOE technologies they can confidently exceed their challenging network performance objectives.
The TOE’s Patent pending architecture is highly scalable, customizable and adaptable without compromising the low latency and performance. Intilop’s product-line solutions are available in flexible FPGA/ASIC/SoC technologies which can easily accommodate diverse set of Networking System Design specifications.
The Series of Cores implementing 16K, 8K, 1K, 256 and 32 Concurrent TCP Sessions is available at Xilinx:
