Nexus

Network Analysis Device

The Nexus network routing and analysis systems demonstrate SDL’s experience in sophisticated digital design, high-speed networking, and hybrid embedded Linux/FPGA/PCIe architectures. It implements an Intel i7 CPU connected to SDL’s custom-designed network packet processor (NPP) card through a high-speed PCIe architecture. Nexus connects to the network using 10 Gb Ethernet and OC-192/STM-64 SONET/SDH interfaces and communicates to a remote GUI to report system state and network analysis data.
