Azanda Network Devices is an innovator in the development of silicon products for the optical metro network, the access portion of core networks, and enterprise networks at the WAN edge. It is poised to evolutionize the datapath architecture of high-speed optical line cards by using an open architecture approach to managing the way data traffic is processed. Azanda's high-performance silicon products, such as ScimitarTM AZ61100 and AZ61120, help OEMs leverage their existing investments in systems and accelerate their product time to market. Azanda's traffic management products integrate three critical functions into a single-chip: 1) simultaneous packet and ATM switching; 2) hierarchical shaping and scheduling; and 3) IP-to-ATM, or Frame Relay-to-ATM interworking via an integrated, wire-speed Segmentation and Re-assembly (SAR) engine. Moreover, Azanda's products concurrently perform these functions for as many as one million Virtual Circuits (VCs) at full-duplex OC-48 speeds.
