Sorry, this is a search engine, not a network processor. Although the NLA12000 is more complex than a TCAM, it is still a device optimized for a narrow set of uses. A network processor, in comparison, is customer-programmable (i.e., a real processor) and can address different functions in different designs depending on its software.

IP layer processing has to be independent of IPv4 and IPv6. I do not understand what is special in IPv6 routing alone in this press release.
