Empowering carrier, enterprise and cloud data services
Built on five generations of the industry’s most scalable and widely adopted infrastructure processor platform, Marvell’s OCTEON™ and ARMADA® devices are optimized for wireless infrastructure, carrier, enterprise and cloud data services.
Marvell’s OCTEON™ and ARMADA® devices are designed for use in wireless infrastructure and networking equipment including switches, routers, secure gateways, firewall, network monitoring, and smartNICs.
Marvell’s OCTEON™ Arm 64-bit SoC processors combine up to 36 cores with configurable and programmable hardware accelerator blocks that supports up to 200 GB data paths.
The Marvell OCTEON family of MIPS64 infrastructure processors, is the only SoC family that utilizes custom designed 64-bit cnMIPS cores and scales up to 48 cores. It incorporates networking I/Os along with the most advanced security, storage, and application hardware acceleration, offering unprecedented throughput and programmability.
Marvell’s LiquidIO III is an OCTEON-based DPU for inline network and security acceleration card in a SmartNIC PCI form factor. It includes support for a full networking software stack based on Linux and DPDK. The LiquidIO III architecture can scale on the hardware as well as software capabilities using the latest generation of OCTEON infrastructure processors. Marvell’s third generation 100GbE adapter family enables data centers to rapidly deploy high-performance SDN applications for both installed and new infrastructure optimizing server utilization, response times and network agility. This product in a PCI Express form factor, provides a proven, high-performance programmable adapter platform that enables cloud service providers to offload and accelerate infrastructure workloads in the data center.
Providing low latency, high system capacity and high per-user data rates – all necessary requirements for a 5G network – requires both the densification of the radio access network (RAN) and the deployment of additional network nodes. As 5G radio networks increasingly use wider bandwidths, the demand for high throughput micro cells with full macro cell capabilities has increased dramatically. Marvell’s OCTEON Fusion processors are targeted for multi-sector macro cell base stations, micro cell base stations, intelligent radio heads and O-RAN-defined distributed units (DUs).
Marvell ARMADA processors are custom designed to deliver optimal performance, low power, and high levels of integration. Our ARMv8 standard CPU cores are the most advanced implementations of industry standard ARM architecture, delivering exceptional processing performance. The ARMADA processor family is optimized for cost optimized applications in compute, networking and storage platforms.
Marvell provides a Unified Software Development Kit (SDK) for all OCTEON and ARMADA® families. The Infrastructure Processor family device capabilities are enhanced by open source packet and security application acceleration APIs. Marvell® also offers an industry standard control, management and data plane software stack optimized for the latest generation of ARM based OCTEON processors.
Unified Software Development Kit
Infrastructure Processor SDK provides complete software platform for development on OCTEON™ and ARMADA® processors. Base SDK is available with generic, and customer-specific extensions such as DPDK, VPP, and ODP.
Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK)
Marvell provides an industry-standard DPDK software package that provides all APIs needed to use the OCTEON TX2 advanced packet-processing and hardware offloads.
