Intel IXP425/IXP420 network processors and performance analysis of 802.11 broadband routers and acce

Intel Corp. commissioned The Tolly Group to benchmark the performance of several 802.11 wireless gateways that utilize the Intel IXP425 and the Intel IXP420 network processors.

Intel Corp. commissioned The Tolly Group to benchmark the performance of several commercially available 802.11 wireless gateways (broadband routers and access points) that utilize the Intel IXP425 and the Intel IXP420 network processors, and compare the performance of those devices against other products based upon rival chipsets.

Full test results are available here.

Test results show that the wireless gateways based upon the Intel IXP425 and IXP420, respectively, either outperform competitive products in most scenarios, or provide performance on par with other devices.

Broadband access router tests included commercially available gear from Linksys (Intel IXP425 & Broadcom technology), D-Link (ARM9), and Netgear (Broadcom 4702). Access points from 3Com, Cisco (IBM PowerPC), D-Link (Intel IXP420) and Linksys (Broadcom) were also evaluated.

Test results included:

  • The Intel IXP425-based Linksys WRV54G in most cases delivered more than four times the wired throughput of other broadband routers tested in unidirectional LAN-to-WAN TCP throughput tests
  • The Linksys WRV54G achieved from 41% to 55% greater throughput than other devices in unidirectional WLAN-to-WAN tests
  • The Linksys WRV54G performed 21% better than the Broadcom-based Linksys WRT54G router while delivering WEP-encrypted data in WLAN-to-WLAN testing
  • The Intel IXP420-based D-link DWL 7000AP outperformed other APs tested in 128-bit WEP bidirectional WLAN-to-LAN TCP tests
