JANUARY 5, 2007 -- Fujitsu Ltd. has selected Xelerated's (search for Xelerated) Xelerator X11 network processor for use on high-performance line cards in Fujitsu's next-generation metro systems.

"Fujitsu's choice demonstrates the growing customer momentum behind Xelerated's network processors," said Linley Gwennap, principal analyst of The Linley Group. "We see increasing opportunities for network processors in the mMetro market, where operators require flexible services with deterministic performance. By meeting these needs, Xelerated has the potential to win a significant share of metro equipment designs," he concludes.

The 20-Gbit/sec full-duplex Xelerator X11 network processor was chosen by Fujitsu because of its price, performance, and power advantages, says Xelerated. The network processor is based on a dataflow architecture that simultaneously delivers ASIC-level efficiency and full programmability. The architecture is designed to inherently guarantee deterministic, low-latency packet behavior, regardless of packet size, traffic pattern, or number of instructions used per packet.

"We are very pleased to be a part of Fujitsu's platforms. This further solidifies our leading position in our key markets and our ability to deliver dependable solutions to tier-one customers," said Johan Börje, CEO of Xelerated. "Being selected by one of the leaders in metro systems for worldwide deployment is an important milestone for us," he concludes.
