Business description: Netronome is a leading supplier of highly programmable semiconductor products that are used for intelligent flow processing in network and communications devices. Netronome’s solutions include tightly integrated network flow processors and acceleration cards that scale to more than 20 Gbps. They are used in carrier-grade and enterprise-class communications products, as well as virtualized servers and appliances that require deep packet inspection, flow analysis and content processing, all at very high speeds for millions of simultaneous flows. Netronome is headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with core operations in Santa Clara, California and Boxborough, Massachusetts, and international operations in the United Kingdom, China and South Africa. Network traffic in both enterprise and carrier networks continues to rise, driving the bandwidth requirements to 10 Gbps today, with work already underway for higher speeds at 40 Gbps to 100 Gbps. This exponential growth has been fueled by a combination of the increase in individual users of the network, more devices and endpoints on the network (PCs, servers, mobile phones, IP phones, IP set top boxes), the convergence of numerous applications and services on a common IP network (VoIP, IPTV, P2P, Web 2.0, NAS), and the increase in bandwidth demands by those applications. The corporate headquarters is in Cranberry Twp., PA.
