Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT), a US based provider of mixed signal semiconductor solutions, has been selected by H3C Technologies Co., Limited (H3C) to provide IDT 89HPES48H12 PCI Express (PCIe) switching solution for its SecPath high-end security systems. The new IDT PCIe switching solution is a 48-lane, 12-port system interconnect switch with advanced architecture. The new high-performance switching solution allows the H3C Firewall/VPN system to support the 40Gbps data throughput.

The new IDT PCIe switching solution supports multiple simultaneous transactions between system processors and the intelligent I/O peripherals to offer guaranteed line rate throughput and the deterministic latency. The new solution simultaneously protects a network from external security attacks to guarantee internal network security, and implement URL filtering and application layer filtering.

Additionally, the H3C security solution leverages the company‚Äôs system interconnect solution’s rich suite of features, incorporating integrated support for the multi-processor failover to ensure the system reliability and two virtual channels allowing direct support for quality of service.

IDT is pleased to be chosen by H3C as the system interconnect device for their high-performance SecPath security solutions, stated Mario Montana, vice president and general manager for the IDT Enterprise Computing Division. We worked closely with H3C to understand their demanding needs when defining our family of system interconnect switching solutions.

The IDT PCI Express switch we have chosen best fits our requirements for a high throughput, low latency and efficient connectivity between intelligent system elements. With high switch port density and scalable, feature-rich, flexible architecture in a simple board layout, H3C is able to achieve — and deliver — the superior performance of the high-end security systems that enterprises and Internet data centers have come to expect from H3C, stated Zhang Guangming, product manger at H3C. We are also very pleased with the local technical support from IDT in helping us build a new PCIe-based system platform in line with our time-to-market requirements.
