Network Processor based Line Card for Ethernet over VDSL Applications
Company : HCL Technologies
Client : Accordion Networks, California, U.S.A
Duration :  Jun '02  - Oct '02
Team size : 5
Environment : Windows NT
Travel : None
Designed and developed a board for Ethernet-over-VDSL communication. The
board uses INTEL Network Processor (IXP1200) for processing and transmitting
VDSL packets received from the VDSL end through the INTEL IXF440 MAC (100
Mbps) to the back plane. The back plane consists of a cross-stream switch
fabric (Vitesse VSC870 - VSC880) for switching the packets to other line
cards. The whole process could work in the other way (i.e from back plane to
the VDSL end). The packet routing rules were enforced by the application
running in the Network processor. VxWorks was used as the real time
operating system in which the applications run. The board also employs an
Ethernet data path using INTEL 82559. The application code was downloaded to
the flash memory devices through the Ethernet data path.

from the FOCUS bus was converted into POS-PHY level 3 signals by the FPGA.
Thereafter, the POS-PHY signal was processed by the optical framer/mapper
(VSC9142), which converts the electrical signal to optical signal. Since
data rate was very high, signal integrity analysis was done for routing the
