Hardware: Ten64

Ten64 features NXP’s Second Generation Data Path Accelerator Architecture (DPAA2) which includes the 28Gbps Wire-Rate IO Processor complex (WR-IOP) with 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports + 2 x 10G SFP+, the NXP SEC accelerator engine and the Advanced IO Processor (AIOP) which can offload network processing functions from the general purpose CPU cores. With DPAA2 and IO-MMU capabilities, network ports and other hardware can be passed through to virtualized network functions (VNF’s) in a secure manner.

Features at a glance

Lots of Ethernet ports

Ten64 has eight Gigabit Ethernet ports, plus two 10G capable SFP+ cages. All Ethernet ports are independent controllers allowing flexibility to construct Ethernet bridges, routers, inline security appliances and isolated network domains for IoT devices

Storage and memory to scale

With support for error-correcting (ECC) memory up to 32 Gigabytes, and support for NVMe SSDs and SATA controller cards, Ten64 can cater for applications from a "flash-only" router up to virtual machine hosts. Upgrade at anytime.

Ideal platform for wireless and wireline convergence

Ten64 has expansion slots for cellular modems and WiFi AP cards, capable of using the latest 5G cellular and WiFi 6 modules.

Containers and Virtualization

The NXP LS1088A processor at the heart of the Ten64 supports virtualization and using DPAA2 technology can provide direct portals to the network dataplane from virtual machines, reducing host CPU load. With fast storage and memory it makes a great container host as well.

Acceleration for secure gateways and VPNs

Ten64 provides acceleration for major standards such as AES, SHA1, SHA256 and IPSec. Secure boot capabilities are available to ensure the integrity of software running on a Ten64.

More throughput with advanced networking

Ten64 supports leading networking APIs such as DPDK and XDP. Additionally, you can program NXP's AIOP (Advanced IO Processor) to offload packet processing from the main CPUs.

Get running quickly

The built-in recovery firmware and bare-metal appliance store allows you to deploy common distributions such as OpenWrt, Debian and Fedora in minutes.

Easy Development

Ten64 features a USB-C serial console port for easy administration and development, and uses the latest ARM Trusted Firmware and U-Boot versions. Developer boards can be booted from both microSD and QSPI Flash to make firmware development easier.

Mainline support

Ten64 can boot the latest mainline Linux kernels and distributions, allowing you to use the very latest innovations from the Linux community. We have contributed patches to the Linux kernel, OpenWrt, u-boot and other projects.
