Increase network performance (3-4x) of a device using OCTEON PLUS for an avionics solutions provider

Our Approach

  • Upgrade from OCTEON SDK 1.8 to ADK 2.3 to use processor HW acceleration
    • Due to flash storage limit reduced footprint of standard ADK 2.3
    • Developed drivers to accelerate Linux kernel using Cavium hardware

Customer Benefit

  • Achieved 7x performance improvement
  • Replaced glibc with uclibc in ADK 2.3 and fit in flash limits
