a pioneer, most respected and recognized leader in providing Ultra-Low latency and Hyper Performance Complex Networking Protocol Accelerators, Mega IP Cores, Systems and Solutions, has released a 16K concurrent-TCP-session Hardware Accelerator Verified on an Altera Stratix IV and V Evaluation Kit This deployment ready with pre-ported and verified 10G TCP Accelerator (TCP Full Offload Engines) that implement from 2 to 16 Thousand Simultaneous TCP Connections, unlimited continuous connections and Bandwidth of more than 1.

The processing needed to perform for a full-offload TOE includes a check of the Ethernet CRC, check of hardware addresses, frame type check, checking and processing of any VLAN tags, stripping of the Ethernet frame header, a lookup on destination IP address in an address cache, a check for the correct protocol, calculation and check of the IP checksum, stripping of the IP header, parsing of TCP flags, a lookup on source and destination IP addresses and ports, creation of TCP pseudo-header checksum, calculation of the TCP checksum, stripping the TCP header, and DMA of the packet data to host memory.
TOEs are being used because TCP requires a great deal of processor overhead to transport data (from Adaptec, Agilent, Emulex, Qlogic, and Troika).
