Reflex CES Introduces Industry's First Aurora-Like IP Core, Offers Freedom to Choose Best FPGA Technology by Enabling Interoperability Between Leading FPGA Platforms

PARIS and EVRY, FRANCE, Dec 12, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Reflex CES, a provider of custom embedded and complex systems, today announced the industry's first release of the Reflex CES Aurora-like IP Core based on Altera FPGAs. The core enables interoperability between Xilinx Virtex-6 LXT and Altera Stratix IV and Stratix V GX FPGAs.

The Reflex CES Aurora-like IP Core offers the freedom to choose the best FPGA technology and accelerate time to market for embedded military and telecommunications/networking applications. It offers a fully compliant implementation of the Xilinx Aurora 8B/10B scalable, link-layer protocol for high-speed serial communication, and allows for communication between FPGAs through a backplane.

"With our Reflex CES Aurora-like IP Core designers can easily migrate to new FPGA families with minimum risks, reuse their previous designs, and choose the best FPGA technology for their boards and systems using the Aurora protocol," noted Sylvain Neveu, Reflex CES co-founder and COO.

Based on the Aurora 8B/10B, an open standard protocol used to transport data with higher connectivity performance for chip-to-chip and board-to-board architecture, the Reflex CES Aurora-like IP Core allows designers to move data from point-to-point across one to sixteen serial lanes at 3.125 Gbps. The core offers user flow control, native flow control, immediate and completion mode, and modules to convert interfaces to and from streaming Advanced eXtensible Interfaces (AXI). This low protocol overhead IP core offers customers minimal data rate transfer latency with minimal logic resources -- less than 900 equivalent logic cells for a 1 lane configuration -- for cost effective implementation.

Availability The Reflex CES Aurora-like 8B/10B IP Core is available now with VHDL source code, test-benches, a reference design and user guide. Reflex CES plans to ship an Aurora-like IP Core that supports communication between FPGAs with a 64B/66B protocol at 10 Gbps.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
