Lanner Electronics Rolls Out FW-8750 Network Appliance Platform

Lanner Electronics announced the launch of the latest product in its line of network appliance platforms and the first to support four-core Intel® Core[TM] 2 Quad CPUs – the FW-8750. The Lanner FW-8750 uses the Intel Q35 Express chipset and LGA 775 socket to support Core 2 Quad CPUs up to 3.16 GHz, providing faster, cooler and lower power operation for CPU-intensive network applications.

“We’re very excited about the prospects for the FW-8750 as a mainstream network application platform,” said Will Chen, CTO of Lanner Electronics. “By providing support for quad-core Intel CPUs, we’ve built an appliance platform that achieves outstanding performance for multi-threaded applications, and its high throughput PCI Express expansion capability lets us put a lot of power and flexibility inside a 1U appliance.”

Built to be fully customizable and scalable, the FW-8750 supports a base of six RJ45 GbE ports, and includes an optional expansion module for an additional four RJ45 GbE ports or four SFP fiber ports. The FW-8750 also comes equipped with two pairs of bypass-enabled ports for high availability, and can be customized with a range of Cavium and Lionic deep packet inspection (DPI) acceleration cards for increased performance in network security applications. With the addition of up to 4GB of dual-channel DDR2, this system can be fully optimized to fit the needs of today’s ever-changing network landscape.

“The FW-8750 is a testament to Lanner’s many years of experience in board and appliance platform design,” said Chen. “With over 20 years of experience in designing and building Intel-based platforms for advanced network applications, our customers trust our products to deliver the performance and reliability they expect.” As a member of the Intel Embedded and Communications Alliance, Lanner leverages the latest Intel technologies to bring groundbreaking network solutions to reality.

The Lanner FW-8750 is available immediately, and provides an optimal platform for a wide range of network applications such as gateway security, WAN acceleration, UTM and VPN systems.
