The MorethanIP P6GQSX programmable switch provides up 6Gbps-switching capability, which can be used as required by the User application. The MorethanIP switch is implemented as a System on Chip (SOC) and it embeds a Hardware switch engine, for performance, and a 32-Bit processor, which performs learning, aging, migration tasks and which can be programmed to implement any other function such as Spanning Tree or any user specific task.
The Switch Engine provides a programmable number of 32-bit Atlantic Interfaces to build up a complete switch solution with flexible system and line interfaces depending on application requirements.
The switch engine is capable of prioritizing incoming traffic in up to 8 different priorities depending on VLAN (802.1q) or IP TOS/COS (DiffServ) values and can implement multiple output queues to provide different service quality to the prioritized traffic.
The MorethanIP P6GQSX Core is available on Altera Stratix FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Array), which provides a quick time-to-market. The Switch Core can be migrated to Altera Hardcopy or ASIC devices to reduce costs.
