SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 8, 2013 – Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced it is collaborating with Nallatech, a leading provider of accelerated computing solutions, to develop high-speed signal acquisition and network monitoring systems that address the high-throughput processing and signal diversity requirements of LTE/SAE core and access optical networks.
Nallatech is developing Signal and Monitoring Systems solutions for high-speed PCIe-based FPGA signal acquisition and signal processing cards. Agilent is a leading provider of mobile network monitoring and measuring equipment, specializing in complex protocol and discovery analysis independent of network technology or equipment.
Together these Signal and Monitoring Systems solutions can enable applications as diverse as locating personnel for safety applications—such as e911—to conducting real-time or forensic analysis that detects malicious activity within a critical infrastructure.
“By integrating best-in-class network signal capture components with Agilent’s extensive capabilities in signal processing and protocol analysis, we aim to bring to market one of the most flexible network monitoring platforms capable of running at line speeds up to 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s,” said Tom Burrell, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Signal Networks Division. “Our customers expect us to be ahead of the technology curve solving their problems today, and our work with Nallatech helps us deliver on that commitment.”
The combined work, which has already developed 10GbE OTN and Ethernet solutions, will focus on supporting evolving network transport technologies at higher data rates, including 40G and 100G.
Nallatech, a subsidiary of Molex, is a leading supplier of FPGA accelerated computing solutions. For 20-plus years, Nallatech has provided hardware, software and design services to enable customers’ success in applications including high-performance computing, network processing, and realtime embedded computing. Today Nallatech utilizes latest-generation FPGAs to dramatically increase performance-per-watt over traditional computing architectures, while leveraging high-level design tools to reduce time-to-market.
