Future Focus Areas

technology_focus

Zeuxion is focused on being at the forefront of the latest technological innovations in the Data and Telecommunications industry. This involves the trends with moving to software defined networks and virtualization, as well as latest Next Generation Mobile Front and Backhaul technologies such as CPRI over OTN.

Zeuxion is also involved in developing and maintaining security solutions such as MACsec based products. This is an area that has seen a growth over the last few years.

Key Market Segments

2015_split

Historically, Optical Transport was Zeuxion’s biggest segment. But today Packet, Wireless and Security have grown and represent more than 70% of our business. Especially the Packet segment is very important with both large and small Ethernet/MPLS switch designs.

Although the optical segment is shrinking, OTN and old legacy SONET/SDH is still a core business for Zeuxion and we are actively engaged in delivering both Software as well as Chip solutions in these areas.

Field of Expertise

Zeuxion’s core competences are within the Data and Telecommunication field, but we also do diverse applications such as video encoding and sonar systems.

Our deliverers include everything from FPGA images to ASIC netlists and complete embedded systems with software drivers.

We are very flexible and cover almost every coding language, from RTL in Verilog/VHDL to Software in C/C++ and scripting in TCL/Python/Perl.
