American Portwell Technology’s CAR-5010 network appliance can be used for building high-end network-security solutions and high-performance computing applications.

CAR-5010 supports the Intel Xeon 5600 series quad-core and six-core processor based on 32nm processor technology.

The server-grade network appliance features a 2U rackmount chassis, dual sockets for the Intel Xeon processors with an integrated memory controller, up to 6.4 GT/s Intel Quick Path Interconnect (QPI) Technology links between the two processors and Intel 5520 I/O Hub with 36 PCI Express generation 2.0 lanes, six DDR3 DIMM slots for each processor.

The CAR-5010 provides high computing power and extensive throughput performance using PCI Express Gen 2.0 solutions of both GbE and 10GbE bandwidth.

It also supports remote network monitoring and active management.

The remote-management features include KVM, IPMI 2.0, power management, virtual media, IPMI authentication and web GUI.

The CAR-5010 is a combination of the latest Intel processors, chipsets and Ethernet controllers in one platform.

With built-in dual-socket design and supporting up to 80GB memory, it delivers the necessary computing power for UTM, IPS, IDS, anti-virus, firewall, VPN, content filtering and more.

The modular design of the front-access network ports on the CAR-5010 can be configured as copper or fibre, GbE or 10GbE, or a copper bypass or fibre bypass module and all support PCI Express Gen2 specification.

Other features include hot-swappable HDD, removable smart system fan and redundant 500W power supply.

Customers using traditional copper or fibre modules can now choose the CAR-5010’s programmable bypass module.

In practice, the programmable bypass mode allows network packets to flow in and out unattended when the appliance is shutting down.

The programmable next boot-up status means that the bypass or open mode can be determined in advance before the system shuts down.

This means that the system can be predetermined to reboot to the preferred status and will be immediately ready to operate.

Instant status can be changed on the fly by a series of software commands.

Each Bypass segment has its own Watch Dog Timer (WDT), so bypass behaviour can operate independently.

This robust performance helps customers consolidate previously separate applications into one network appliance, such as the Portwell CAR-5010, to achieve cost designs.

Intel Xeon 5600 processors, based on 32nm processor technology, provide a socket and pin-compatible upgrade to the existing 5520 chipset platform with up to six-core operation (up to 12 threads per socket with hyper-threading technology) that brings significant performance increase and improved energy efficiency.

The CAR-5010 network appliance built with a 10G PCIe SFP+ network interface card (NIC) delivers a high performance of multi-core, 10 GbE computing, in addition to supporting the Linux OS.

It allows network-application developers to consolidate solutions and lower development costs with a feature set supporting both the PCI Express Generation 1.0 and 2.0, GbE and 10GbE (Intel 82599ES/EB), copper and fiber NIC with bypass or without bypass (fail-over).

Customers can choose from these different solution portfolios to enhance their development cycle and launch their products to the market faster.
