The FW-8894 is a high performance 1U rackmount network security system built with Intel’s latest Haswell-EP CPU and Intel® C612 Wellsburg PCH (codenamed “Grantley”), offering comparative advantages at providing additional processor improvement, faster packet processing performance, higher memory bandwidth and more power efficiency.
The FW-8894 features two Intel® Xeon E5-2600 v3 Series processors for handling not only enterprise-grade network traffic data rates but also associated control/signaling infrastructure requirements. Also notable is the support for hardware-based Intel® QuickAssist acceleration technology, enabling offloading encryption/decryption and compression for up to 25 Gbps.
The FW-8894’s modular interface allows the installation of various Lanner modules, making it available to a maximum of four slots for 1G, 10G, or 40G, Fiber or Copper/Bypass NIC modules (LAN Bypass may vary depending on module specifications), including the recently released NCS2-IXM407 and the NCS2-IQM201, both powered by the Intel Fortville.
“The FW-8894 is the next generation network appliance developed and built with the latest Intel® technology. Even though designed in 1U and compact form factor, FW-8894 leverages all the technological advancements offered by Intel’s latest “Grantley” platform and is promised to deliver superb processing power and well-designed architecture”, said Terence Chou, Head of Lanner’s Network Computing Product Division.
Other features include a maximum of 512GB DDR4 2133 MHz memory, 650W 1+1 ATX redundant power supply, OPMA slot for IPMI, 4 hot-swappable cooling fans with smart fan control and, and support for generation 2 or generation 3 LAN bypass depending on selected NIC module specifications.
