Marvell OCTEON TX2® CN106X 1U 
Artificial Intelligence Ready Networking Appliance

ARM Appliances


The Tahoe 8850 from Interface Masters is a highly-flexible 1U networking appliance for enterprise installations. The ARM-based appliance is based on Marvell's game-changing 5nm OCTEON TX2 CN106x ARM-64 multicore processor and features:

  • An optimized AI pipeline: the device supports any off-the-shelf PCIe x16 network card including advanced NVIDIA® or AMD® GPUs (thermally validated using industry-leading ANSYS® thermal simulation).
  • Our software differentiator: Marvell SDK operating on multiple Linux distributions.
  • Integrated DPDK library: allows writing customer specific user space network applications using included RVU-based coprocessors (ensuring efficient traffic processing).
  • US Development and Production: guarantees secure hardware.
  • Full certifications: UL, cUL, and CB 62368-1.

Target applications include any appliance benefiting from comprehensive hardware accelerators including an integrated hardware ML/AI acceleration engine, and applications requiring hardware based VPP acceleration, integrated 1Tb switch, true inline crypto, programmable packet processors, secure boot, physically unclonable function and PCIe DMA acceleration.
