Axiomtek Introduces the NA580, a Powerful 1U Rackmount Network Appliance Based on the Intel® Xeon® E3/Core™ Processors


City of Industry, Calif., November 2, 2015- Axiomtek, one of the world's leading designers and manufacturers of innovative, high performance and reliable PC-based industrial computer products, is proud to announce the NA580, a new, high-performance 1U 19” rack mount network appliance product. The network platform NA580 offers high processing performance through its LGA1151 socket Intel® Xeon® E3 or 6th Generation Intel® Core™ processors with an Intel® C236 chipset. This powerful network appliance supports up to 18 Gigabit LAN ports which allows system developers to configure their network solutions based on different performance requirements.


This advanced 1U rack mount network appliance is scalable, customizable and has great expansion capabilities. Through the PCIe 3.0, the Axiomtek NA580 can integrate up to 18 Gigabit Ethernet ports. The standard configuration comes with 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports using Intel® i210 controller and supports 2 pairs of LAN bypass segments. Four DDR4 2400 MHz UDIMM sockets can provide storage up to 64 GB and support both ECC and non-ECC memory types. To enhance reliability, this SMB network appliance platform supports data protection via two pairs of latch-type LAN bypass functions for fail-over option and features BIOS console redirection. Axiomtek’s reliable yet flexible network appliance platform is suitable for a variety of applications including VPN, firewall and network security, network bandwidth controller, WAN accelerator, and surveillance systems.


“Axiomtek’s outstanding 1U network security appliance offers a great range of processor choices and expansion capabilities which allows developers to configure their network solutions based on specified performance requirements,” said Stuart Tseng, product manager at Axiomtek. “The Intel® AES New Instruction (AES-NI) enhancements included with the Axiomtek NA580 use hardware-based acceleration to encrypt and decrypt data.  It also supports the Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (Intel® DPDK), a set of software libraries that can improve packet processing performance by up to ten times.”


The new 1U rackmount network communication appliance, NA580, features two internal 2.5” SATA hard drives and one CFast™ socket for extensive storage options. In order to address the various needs of network applications, this network appliance also features one console port, two USB 3.0 ports and a VGA port. The system also comes with an LCM activity indicator for convenient monitoring of power and HDD activity. This high network security appliance system also supports mainstream Linux operating systems.


Axiomtek’s NA580 supports a long life cycle and provides developers with extensive customization options. The NA580 is available now.
