Product Overview
Equipment designed for network access and
edge applications requires great processing
performance to support value-added network
services at T1/E1 to 1 Gbps line rates. Network
equipment vendors must rapidly add these new

services and continue to minimize development
time and cost. To meet these needs and extend
time-in-market, network processors must combine
performance with programming fl exibility. In
addition, by implementing standards-based
interfaces, vendors can integrate components
more easily and leverage software investments
by reusing code. This can dramatically speed
time-to-market and lower development costs.
With the addition of the Intel
IXP2325 network
processor to the product line, the Intel
network processors now support scalable
performance from T1/E1 to OC-192/10 Gbps.
This mid-range product extends Intel’s fully
programmable architecture to new, lower cost/
performance points for access and edge
applications, including broadband access
devices, wireless infrastructure systems, routers
and multi-service switches. The Intel IXP2325
network processor is fully programmable, inte-
grating key architectural features from the Intel
IXP42X and IXP2XXX product lines to support
wire speed deep packet inspection, traffi c
management and forwarding on a single chip.
Its store-and-forward architecture combines
enhanced high performance Intel XScale core,
two 32-bit independent multi-threaded
microengines, hardware-based cryptography
acceleration, and a 256 HDLC channel controller
to deliver up to 2.5 giga-operations per second.
