Abstract
We present an architecture for network processing nodes based on a massively parallel processor structure. Due to its regularity, our architecture can be easily scaled to accommodate a range of packet processing applications with disparate performance and throughput requirements at high reliability. Furthermore, the composition from predefined building blocks guarantees fast design cycles and eases system verification. For particular resource efficiency in terms of power consumption, computational performance, and area requirements, specialized hardware accelerators can be embedded into the tailored processor cluster, which have been optimized for a particular target application. We demonstrate our approach using a real-world network access scenario that implements a full Internet protocol based digital subscriber line access multiplexer (IP-DSLAM) on our architecture. For this scenario, we achieve substantial increases of performance with only a slight area increase of less than 0.3 %. At the same time, the processors are strongly relieved and are thus available for the remaining tasks.
