The rising trend of IoT (Internet of Things) has triggered greater demands for reliability and serviceability in network security, cloud computing and data center operations. To meet this challenging demand, Lanner has unveiled its first 6th generation Intel Core-based 1U network appliance NCA-4210, featuring 14nm microprocessor, the new LGA 1151 socket, DDR4 memory support and the I/O boosting, comprehensive Intel® H110 and C236 series chipset, and flexible LAN configurations.
NCA-4210 is empowered by the new Intel 14nm micro-architecture CPU, the 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor (codenamed Skylake-S), the successor of Broadwell. With the next generation 3-D tri-gate design, the adoption of the 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor comes with the promise to enhance processor performance, while lowering the TDP. A new socket type, LGA 1151, has also been released for the die-shrinking architecture. In terms of memory efficiency, NCA-4210 supports dual-channel DDR4 with frequency up to 2133MHz and capacity up to 32GB by 2 x 16GB DIMM. ECC is also supported (only available for C236 chipset).
Another interesting feature of NCA-4210 is the use of Intel® H110 and C236 series chipset. The new PCH brings up a huge upgrade for PCI Express. With the new socket LGA 1151, NCA-4210 supports up to 20 PCIe Gen3.0 lanes and M.2 socket, greatly enhancing I/O efficiency up to 40 percent.
NCA-4210 is introduced for network traffic security, cloud computing and data centers. Along with the adoption of the 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor, NCA-4210 offers useful I/O functionalities. NCA-4210 supports one mSATA socket and two SATA 2.5” HDD/SSD trays for storage purposes. Regarding expansions, NCA-4210 is designed with an Ethernet NIC module socket at the front or with the option of a rear PCI riser card at the rear on the same side. For remote management purpose, NCA-4210 comes with an OPMA socket for IPMI card insertion.
Another significant feature of NCA-4210 is the flexible LAN configurations. Depending on the SKUs, there are Ethernet connectivity options of 6 x RJ-45 GbE LAN + 2 x SFP GbE LAN with 2 pairs of bypass, and 6 x RJ-45 GbE LAN with 2 pairs of bypass.
