May the force be with you

Based on a CPCI-550 single board computer, Force Computers’ Centellis 4550 3U system is powered by Sun Microsystems’ UltraSPARC-IIe 500MHz processor.

This four-slot, H.110 computer telephony (CT) bus-compatible system provides a Solaris 8 operating system-ready solution ideal for network firewall security, Web caching, digital subscriber line (DSL) concentration, Internet protocol (IP) over satellite, video on demand and other customer premises equipment (CPE) applications.

It also features Force Computers’ Sentinel ‘universal-mode’ PCI-to-PCI bridge (PPB) and supports the PICMG 2.1, R2.0 Full Hot Swap specification.

A flexible 19-inch rack-mountable design, the system has 512MBytes ECC-protected SDRAM, multiple storage options -18GByte hard disk drive, floppy and DVD, four 10/100 Mbit Ethernet interfaces, four RS-232 interfaces with hardware handshake capability, four USB and two Wide Ultra3 SCSI (LVD) interfaces, as well as one PCI mezzanine card (PMC) slot.
