IPC2U Group: FW-8890 Quad-Core Network Security

The FW-8890 offers performance, expansion and serviceability

IPC2U Group announces today the Lanner Electronics FW-8890, a 2U rackmount appliance for enterprise-grade network applications. Combining an Intel 5000P server-grade chipset and two Dual- or Quad-Core XEON sequence processors enables the FW-8890 to deliver unparalleled performance.

"The FW8890 redefines the design of high-performance network security hardware," stated Lawrence Chao, Executive Vice President. "It integrates an Intel 5000P chipset, an onboard Cavium VPN accelerator, and a PCI-Express network traffic bus, allowing our customers to deliver faster, feature-rich applications—which are simultaneously flexible, expandable, and easy to maintain."

The FW 8890 improves upon the architecture of earlier generations by offering a PCI-Express network traffic bus, up to twelve gigabit RJ45 or SFP fiber ports, a PCI-E enhanced north-southbridge link, four hot-swappable SATA bays, and eight Fully-Buffered DIMMS. These enhancements give application designers both greater freedom in building today’s network appliances and ample headroom for satisfying future hardware demands.

The FW-8890 network appliance is designed for multi-service communication applications—such as Business-to-Business Gateways, Unified Threat Management Appliances, and Triple Play Servers. By employing the FW-8890 in multi-service applications, customers can optimize data density, reduce operating costs, and improve business continuity with an energy-efficient network infrastructure.

Benefits of the FW-8890

  • Quad-core processing - Deliver better performance on multiple applications at a substantially reduced power envelope.
  • Intel Core microarchitecture - Supports better system utilization, boosts application responsiveness, and increases performance headroom for single and multi-threaded applications.
  • Onboard Cavium Nitrox CN1010 VPN Accelerator – Increases total system throughput by processing high-level IPsec and IKE, IPv6, SSL and Wireless LAN security protocol macro commands to reduce host I/O traffic and dramatically offload the system processor.
  • Up to 12 enterprise grade Intel Gigabit NICs - High network throughput scans more packets per second with fail-over bypass support.
  • Intel Virtualization technology - Enables migration of more environments including 64-bit applications and operating systems to virtual environments.
  • Intel's sub 65W dual-core processors - Low-power SKUs improve data center density and thermal mechanics.
  • Expansion options – Lanner offers an extensive line of PCI-X and PCI-E VPN and content inspection network accelerators.
