Lanner Electronics, Inc., a leading designer and ODM manufacturer of advanced network application platforms, today announced the release of a new mid-range appliance platform with up to 24 Gb Ethernet ports and optional Cavium Nitrox CN1620 security processor onboard.
The Lanner FW-8860 packs considerable processing performance in a standard 1U rack mount form factor using a single mainstream Intel® Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad processor. When combined with an optional Cavium Nitrox CN1620 security processor, the Lanner FW-8860 delivers high-end performance at a mid-range price.
The FW-8860 is suitable for a wide range of inline network applications such as traffic management, load balancing, VPN and WAN acceleration, as well as network security applications including unified threat management, gateway antivirus, web filtering and anti-spam appliances.
Lanner's network appliances employ a unique modular design that gives solution providers a number of options in terms of network port configurations, providing enhanced flexibility for different network environments. The FW-8860 can be fit ted with over 10 different slot-in modules with two, four and eight Ethernet ports (both copper and SFP fiber), gigabit and 10 gigabit speeds, and copper and fiber bypass ports.
"Security and network acceleration continue placing higher and higher demands on inline communications hardware in the high speed and mission-critical IT markets, making it crucial that network appliances can support flexible deployments, high throughput speeds and reliable security," said Jesse Chiang, Network Communications Product Planner at Lanner Electronics. "The Lanner FW-8860 ensures that vendors requiring appliances with low cost, flexible functionality and support for industry-leading security and hardware acceleration have access to the ideal solution."
The FW-8860 is currently available for evaluation. For more information, contact a Lanner representative or visit us on the web.
