Taipei, Taiwan, April 7, 2021 – Today sees the release of the NCA-6520, a 2U 19" rackmount network security appliance featuring dual 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor, higher throughputs, built-in crypto acceleration and exceptional NIC module expansion.
Powered by the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors with up to 40 cores, PCIe-Gen4 support and 1.2x memory capacity, NCA-6520 features powerful networking processing capability and higher throughput. “The 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor will deliver enhanced performance for network security workloads through increased processor cores, higher memory bandwidth and faster input/output,” said Jeans Tseng, Chief Technology Officer at Lanner Electronics. “With Intel® 3rd Gen Xeon® Scalable processors, Lanner network appliances can offer up to 1.94x more secure networking connections and achieve significantly faster speeds to support cloud, edge and work-from-home use cases.”
The integrated 100Gbps Intel® QuickAssist Technology is a hardware technology that accelerates critical workloads such as data compression and cryptography across server, storage and network applications. In addition, Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel SGX) offers hardware-based memory encryption for isolating specific application code and data in memory, allowing NIC module insertion/extraction with almost no performance impact.
The NCA-6520 is equipped with 8 NIC module slots, capable of delivering almost any networking interface and I/O configuration. The purpose-built modular kits developed to optimize for a broad selection of expansion requirement, including 1/10/25/40/100G copper/fiber interface, NVMe SSD storage, 4K video transcoding and WiFi/LTE connectivity. The upper layer of NCA-6520 NIC modules slots also support hot-swappable PCIe functionality.
In terms of product specification, NCA-6520 accommodates up to twenty-four 288-pin DDR4 R-DIMM/LRDIMM at 2133/2400/2666/2933/3200 MHz, providing up to 1536GB of system memory. Other notable features include 2x HDD/SSD drive bays, 850W 1+1 ATX redundant powers, 2x PCIe x16 expansion slots, 3x M.2 and 4x individual hot-swappable smart fans.
