FREMONT, CA: Lanner, manufacturer of network security appliances and industrial computers introduces its first Skylake-S based 1U modular network appliance NCA-5210. The product features 14nm microprocessor, new Xeon E3-1200 v5 Series, DDR4 memory support and I/O boosting, Intel C236 Series chipset, and flexible LAN configurations.  The solution claims to meet the soaring demand for reliability and serviceability in network security, cloud computing and data center operations.

The next generation 3-D tri-gate design enables seamless deployment of Skylake-S CPU by enhancing processor performance while bringing down the Telelocator Data Protocol (TDP).  New LGA 1151 socket is used for optical shrinking architecture which holds up to20 PCIe Gen3.0 lanes and M.2 socket, enhancing the I/O efficiency up to 40 percent.  When it comes to memory proficiency, NCA-5210 supports dual-channel DDR4 with frequency up to 2133MHz and capacity up to 64GB by 4 x 16GB dual in-line memory module (DIMM) where Error-correcting code (ECC )is also supported. It incorporates one mSATA socket and one 3.5” or two SATA 2.5” hard disk drive (HDD)/ solid-state drive (SSD) trays for storage purposes. The new PCH brings in the latest upgrades for Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) Express.

NCA-5210 facilitates expansions with two Ethernet Negative impedance converter (NIC) module sockets at the front or a rear (PCI) riser card at the rear on the same side. The OPMA socket for Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) card insertion caters to the remote management functionality of the solution.  Furthermore, NCA-5210 carries flexible LAN configurations and based on the Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) Ethernet connection 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.
