NPA-0™ Access NPU

5G NPU with integrated TM and CPU for Access Applications

Mellanox NPA-0 is a highly-flexible network processor with integrated traffic management targeting Ethernet network access platforms (ONT/OLT GPON/EPON), copper access platforms (DSLAM) and demarcation devices, and 3G/4G WiMAX base stations for aggregation and backhaul. The NPA-0 provides high integration, programmable packet processing and advanced flow-based bandwidth control at 5-Gigabit aggregate throughput.
