New System-on-a-Chip 1U communication appliance platform
Portwell Technology announces CATO-2000, a new System-on-a-Chip 1U communication appliance platform based on the Intel EP80579 Integrated Processor with Intel QuickAssist Technology (the new Intel SoC solution with built-in security features).
By using the Intel EP80579 processor, the CATO-2000 maximizes power efficiency and performance to provide up to 30 percent power savings when compared with traditional Intel Architecture.
CATO-2000 supports DDR2 800/533 ECC or non-ECC memory up to 4 GB; four GbE ports onboard; three Gigabit Ethernet interface via RGMII with hardware security acceleration; one PCI-E x1 GbE interface for extended networking application; optional two segments Ethernet bypass function; security services and bulk crypto for IPSec, VPN, Firewall, SSL, IP Forwarding and TCP Proxy, and Content Filtering. Expansion capabilities include one PCI-E x4 slot for add-on card or additional 4 GbE ports.
CATO-2000 joins the CATO-3000 as part of Portwell’s EP80579-based family and is the ideal platform solution for Network Security such as Firewall, VPN, IDS/IPS, Anti-Spam, Anti-Virus, and UTM; Network Management such as routers, RAS gateways, QoS, wireless controllers, and streaming.
