Scalable modules for boost and connectivity enhancement
Purpose-built modular kits, F.A.S.T. solutions are designed to enhance Lanner’s network computing appliances. These multi-functional modular kits come in the N2S, the N3S or the NCS2 form factor and aim to deliver flexibility, adaptability, scalability and transformability for all compatible appliances’ connectivity, storage and open compute capabilities.
Two new F.A.S.T. solutions have been released from the connectivity series, namely the NCS2-IXM209 and the NCS2-IXM409. They come in Lanner’s standard slim type NCS2 form factor and are built with Intel XL-710-BM1 chipset in multi mode (NCS2-IXM409) and single mode (NCS2-IXM209).
Intel Ethernet Controller XL710 (codenamed Fortville) integrates advanced traffic steering capabilities with Intel DPDK, enabling higher packet processing for network appliances in applications such as DPI, IPS/IDS and WAN optimisation.
The NCS2-IXM209 and the NCS2-IXM409’s most notwithstanding features are their support for 10G LC fiber ports; whereas the NCS2-IXM409 offers 4 LC fibre ports, the NCS2-IXM209 offers 2, delivering socket direct, multi-host performance and lighting speed for almost all networking applications.
Also featured are Gen3 PCIe x8 golden finger and LAN LED.
