Networking Applications using Spansion NOR, Serial and NAND Flash Memory




 

NOR Flash for Networking

Information is being consumed anytime, anywhere and any way. According to Cisco’s Visual Networking Index: Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast Update, 2010–2015, “global mobile data traffic grew 2.6-fold in 2010, nearly tripling for the third year in a row.” The growth has been and will continue to be quite incredible. According to ABI Research, the surge in video alone will drive global data traffic to more than 60,000 petabytes in 2016. This explosion in data traffic will continue to demand more equipment to support the internet backbone and the server farms that feed it.

 

4G / LTE Base Stations

Cloud computing and rich mobile media services are driving wireless operators to improve network performance. Next generation 4G / LTE networks promise to connect people and content more quickly but it requires more sophisticated hardware and software. Highly reliable code and data storage is required to ensure quality of service. Spansion GL NOR Flash memory, with its wide density range and long-term support, is perfectly suited for this advanced gear and helps ensure systems are up and running.

Routers and Switches

Data centers are expanding to support growing bandwidth requirements and driving the need for faster routers and switches supporting 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet. Reliability and longevity is critical as systems can be deployed for 5 – 7 years. Spansion Flash memory supports these requirements and also provides the highest performance in the industry while operating within the high temperatures of the data center.

Home Networking

ADSL and cable modems, routers and converged devices like home gateways are the consumer’s access point to the internet. Bandwidth needs in the home continue to grow as well supporting online gaming, video streaming and IP-based TV services. The rich and interactive content is also demanding more sophisticated equipment in the home. These applications that once required 32 and 64 Mb of code and data storage now need upwards of 512 Mb for expanded feature sets. Spansion parallel and serial Flash memory are the ideal solutions.
