The rising trend of IoT has triggered greater demands for reliability and serviceability in network security, cloud computing and data centre operations. To meet this challenging demand, Lanner has unveiled its first Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 v5 series, based 1U modular network appliance NCA-5210, featuring 14nm microprocessor, the Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 v5 series, DDR4 memory support and the I/O boosting, comprehensive Intel C236 series chipset and flexible LAN configurations.
NCA-5210 is empowered by the Intel 14nm micro-architecture CPU, Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 v5 series. Built with Intel’s next gen 3D Tri-gate transistors, the adoption of Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 v5 series comes with the promise to enhance processor performance, while lowering the TDP. A socket type, LGA 1151, has also been released for the die-shrinking architecture. In terms of memory efficiency, NCA-5210 supports dual-channel DDR4 with frequency up to 2133MHz and capacity up to 64GB by 4 x 16GB DIMM. ECC is also supported.
Another interesting feature of NCA-5210 is the use of Intel C236 series chipset. The PCH brings up a huge upgrade for PCI Express. With the socket LGA 1151, NCA-5210 supports up to 20 PCIe Gen3.0 lanes and M.2 socket, giving you 40% more high-speed I/O ports with increased port flexibility.
NCA-5210 is introduced for network traffic security, cloud computing and data centres. Along with the adoption of the Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 v5 series, NCA-5210 offers useful I/O functionalities. NCA-5210 supports one mSATA socket and one 3.5” or two SATA 2.5” HDD/SSD trays for storage purposes. Regarding expansions, NCA-5210 is designed with two Ethernet NIC module sockets 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-5210 comes with an OPMA socket for IPMI card insertion.
Another significant feature of NCA-5210 is the flexible LAN configurations. Depending on the SKUs, there are Ethernet connectivity options of 8 x RJ-45 GbE LAN + 2 x NIC module sockets and 12 x RJ-45 GbE LAN, 4 x SFP GbE Fiber + 2 NIC module sockets.
