About Us


Blue Sage Communications provides high performance packet processing Intellectual Property (IP) designs for networking applications. Blue Sage has developed an Algorithmic Search Engine (ASE) that replaces special function Ternary Content Addressable Memories (TCAMs) with a solution that can be deployed on multi-core SoCs, FPGAs or ASICs. Blue Sage's ASE provides true N-tuple search with Exact Match, Longest Prefix Match, Range Match, and Random Wildcard Match capability and can be used for Access Control Lists, Forwarding tables, Openflow Flow and Group Tables, Connection identification, and any application that requires high throughput, low latency packet header lookup.
