High Performance Network Security Appliance
Industry type:Electronics and communication
Product model number:FWA-6510
Advantech Co., Ltd.
award 3

FWA-6510 network application system is designed for maximum performance, scalability and functionality in a 2U rack mount footprint. This multi-core processor-based, high-end network communications appliance is optimized for computing power and high speed, high density I/O with best-in-class energy efficiency.

Two E5-2600 series Intel Xeon processors with up to 8 cores provide the latest architectural enhancements as well as unprecedented I/O integration: Two Intel® QuickPath Interconnects running at up to 8GT/s each support reduced cross-socket memory I/O latencies and increased throughput. Each socket supports 4 DDR3 channels with speeds up to 1600 MHz for up to 384 GB of ECC memory when using the latest LR DIMM technology. Advanced RAS modes such as mirroring and sparing increase platform reliability. Three I/O controllers per socket provide a total of 80 PCIe lanes supporting the latest gen 3 technology of up to 8Gbps per lane.

With this improved I/O connectivity, the FWA-6510 can support up to 8 Network Mezzanine Cards (NMCs) for modular, configurable networking I/O and acceleration. PCIe gen 3 technology paves the way for supporting 40GbE and quad 10GbE modules in the near future. (Please contact your Advantech representative for an overview of available and planned NMCs).

Support for standard PCI Express expansion slots with a riser card and TPM (Trusted Platform Management) for enhanced platform security round off the feature set of this platform. The management panel at the front provides one RJ-45 serial port, two Gigabit Ethernet management ports, two USB ports and an LCD module, and LED indicators for power/locate/ alert for local system management, maintenance, and diagnostics. The system is FCC, UL, CB, CE, CCC and RoHS compliant.
