Analysis of Network Processor Processing Elements Topologies

An exponential growth in high-speed requirement in computer networks due to increased number of users, servers, connections and demands for new applications, along with the tremendous growth in data traffic has claimed the development and deployment of high-speed telecommunication systems. A solution to this problem is to use specialized processors, called Network Processors (NPs). These Application Specific Instruction Processors (ASIPs) are specially designed to perform packet processing task and their architecture is usually a question of different trade-offs between performance, flexibility and price.
