Reported at EE Times: "Crossbeam Systems Inc. has announced a system to handle central-office
networking applications such as firewalls and XML accelerators.
Like offerings from CloudShield Technologies Inc., Crossbeam's X40 box uses off-the-shelf network
processors to route packets in what are traditionally server-based applications. Crossbeam's expertise lies in moving the packets to the applications blades, where standard
microprocessors running Linux do the actual application processing."
