The article discusses several features of a multicore system including the availability of carrier grade operating system, high performance packet processing, and virtualization. It mentions that the two groups of multicore processors, the homogeneous and heterogeneous multicore processor, are distinguished by their architectures. It suggests that developers should focus on the existing problems when optimizing a multicore system such as the synchronization, timing, and performance.
