Desktop ultra-compact network appliance platform

American Portwell Technology announced the CATO-2010, a desktop ultra-compact network appliance platform based on the Intel EP80579 Integrated Processor with Intel QuickAssist Technology, the new Intel system-on-chip (SoC) solution with built-in security features.

By using the Intel EP80579 Integrated Processor, American Portwell’s CATO-2010 maximizes power efficiency to provide up to 30 percent power savings when compared with traditional Intel Architecture (IA). CATO-2010 is small, compact (9″ W x 7.76″ D x1.65″ H) and also both EU and China RoHS compliant.

American Portwell’s CATO-2010 supports DDR2 800/533 ECC or non-ECC memory up to 4 GB; four GbE ports onboard; three Gigabit Ethernet interface via RGMII (with optional 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. Storage support includes solid-state flash such as Compact Flash (CF) and Disk On Module (DOM).

CATO-2010 joins the CATO-2000 and CATO-3000 as part of Portwell’s Intel EP80579-based family and is a 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. Other applications include medical DICOM and PACS, and industrial automation control via Ethernet TCP/IP. In addition, CATO-2010 can function as a security hardware platform that meets the requirements of Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX).
