NWA-6500 Series: Network Security Appliance with Intel® Denverton SoC Processors

Cost-effective platform for SMEs to advance cyber security protection

Quanmax, a well-known embedded computing technology provider, is excited to unveil its next-generation network security appliance, named NWA-6500 Series, powered by Intel’s latest server-grade Denverton processors. This new appliance is designed for small and medium enterprises to protect their networks from various malicious attacks or unwanted traffic with limited financial and technical resources.

Faster and Securer Server-grade Network Appliance

NWA-6500 Series is powered by Intel’s new low-power server-grade Denverton SoC processors, Atom C3000 Series. Besides significantly enhanced computing / network / storage performance and energy efficiency, the integration with Intel QuickAssist Technology (QAT) can offload a variety of compression and encryption workloads, such as symmetric / asymmetric encryption, authentication, digital signatures, RSA (Reliability, Availability and Serviceability) / DH (Diffie-Hellman) / ECC (Elliptic-Curve Cryptography) key exchange and lossless data compression, from the main CPU to another dedicated engine to improve the performance and efficiency of the tasks for compression and encryption. With DDR4 memory support up to 256 GB, the appliance has sufficient responsiveness to high-volume network traffic stream and guarantees reliable network service. Also, it integrates a hardware-based TPM 2.0 security chip inside, providing securer encryption / authentication / identification measures than a software-based solution.

Redundant Network Interfaces

Six Gigabit Ethernet ports are integrated into the NWA-6500 Series with two pairs supporting LAN bypass function. Therefore, the appliance not only allows great connectivity / flexible configuration between different external / internal networks to enable reliable and secure network communications, but also ensures uninterrupted network traffic even if a single in-line device fails to work.

Flexible Storage & Wireless Expansion

Besides a 2.5″ SATA HDD / SSD drive, NWA-6500 Series reserves an mSATA / mPCIe combo socket, a new-generation M.2 Key A socket and an M.2 Key B socket for flexible configuration to offer SSD storage, Wi-Fi and / or WWAN wireless connection.

Excellent Reliability for 24/7 Operation

The low-power NWA-6500 Series is made with well-designed passive cooling and almost zero cable inside, guaranteeing highly reliable silent operation against environmental disturbances, such as vibration and dust buildup to sensitive components. It can keep itself at a safe temperature and operate 24/7 without downtime.

NWA-6500 Series is a cost-effective hardware device for small and medium enterprises to advance their cyber security protection and / or preserve network uptime. It can fulfill a variety of network applications, including firewall, UTM, VPN, IPS / IDS, vCPE, Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Anti-Spam, Web Filter, Bandwidth Manager, Link Load Balancing, etc. The list below summarizes its features and specifications.
