GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the NETernity GBX460, which is a fully managed data plane switch module. The managed GBX460 features OpenWare switch management capability, Layer 2/3 switching and routing, including support for IPv6 addressing; extensive management for configuration and protocol options; and the ability to customize the software to meet specific application requirements. OpenWare supports high throughput interprocessor communication (IPC) between 10GigE-enabled processing nodes. The NETernity GBX460 is ideal for high performance computing (HPC) and networking applications (communications, ISR and radar).
GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the DSP280 multiprocessor. The GE DSP280 features RDMA-enabled 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Double Data Rate (DDR) InfiniBand dual port NICs, 16 GBytes of ECC memory, 16 GBytes of solid state disk, up to 1.8 GBytes/second data rates per channel, memory-to-memory latencies of 1µs, 260+ Gigaflops peak performance and main memory bandwidth of up to 21 GBytes/second per CPU node. The rugged dual socket quad core 6U VPX multiprocessor is ideal for ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance), radar, sonar, and image and sensor processing applications.
