A highly functional and modular 2U rackmount communication appliance offers a comprehensive solution for customers in the network security, communications and infrastructure market. The modular design of the CAR-5020 from American Portwell utilizes the Intel Platform for Communications Infrastructure, formerly codenamed “Crystal Forest.” The platform features Intel QuickAssist Technology, supports dual processors up to 16 cores with CPU support for Level 3 Cache (up to 40 Mbyte), 16 DIMMs and DDR3 240-pin memory slots. Specifically, the CAR-5020 supports dual Intel Xeon processors E5-2600 series with up to 16 cores and 2 QPI links. The platform supports dual-channel DDR3 1333/1066 UDIMM/ RDIMM memory with maximum capacity up to 128 Gbyte.

The Intel QuickAssist Technology, supported by Intel Communications Chipset 89xx Series on the platform, supports security up to 20 Gbit/s Bulk Encryption/Decryption, Bulk: AES, 3DES, (A)RC4, Hash: MD5, SHA-1/2, HMAC, Wireless: Kasumi and SNOW 3G, Public Key: RSA, DSA and DH Internal TRNG + pCRC. It is this technology combined with the processor offload for workload acceleration that makes the CAR-5020 platform compelling for the communications & infrastructure market.

The three swappable NIC module card slots on the CAR-5020 appliance offer a wide range of choices to customers to accommodate Ethernet interfaces For example, 4/8GbE copper or 2/4/8GbE fiber with 0/1/2 bypass segments; expandable with 2 ports 10GbE (RJ45/ SFP+) with or without bypass. In addition, there are four expansion slots—two PCI-E x8 Gen2 slots and two PCI-E x8 Gen1 slots to satisfy various customer demands. The CAR-5020 appliance implements both IPMI 2.0 and Power Management Bus I/O on board, providing robust remote monitoring and management capabilities.

American Portwell’s CAR-5020 2U rackmount communication appliance is positioned for network security applications such as firewall, VPN, IDS/IPS, anti-spam, anti-virus and UTM, and network management applications such as routers, RAS gateways, QoS, server load-balancing, wireless LAN controllers, medical DICOM and PACS, and industrial automation control via Ethernet TCP/IP.
