Lanner Electronics has launched the FW-8760 – a mid-range network application built with support for the 32nm Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processors.

The FW-8760 utilises the Intel 3450 chipset, has eight Ethernet ports, can hold 16GB of RAM and has expansion opportunities via mini PCI and PCIe slots.

The company said it is ideal for network security applications, IPS, UTM, firewall and WAN acceleration.

The FW-8760 features an additional mini-PCI and a PCIe (x)8 lane built into the motherboard.

For extended options, customers have the added ability to order more PCIe slots – either two more PCIe (x)4 slots or 1 PCIe(x)8 slot.

As a network appliance, the FW-8760 has eight onboard RJ45 Ethernet ports from an Intel 82574L, with all four pairs supporting a bypass function.

The FW-8760 includes space for an additional network card that adds another eight Ethernet ports for a maximum total of 16 ports.

Clients can choose from more than 10 different Lanner network modules, including 10GbE cards, fibre bypass and 10GbE fibre bypass.

For additional I/O connectivity, there is a console RJ45 port, two USB 2.0 ports and an optional IPMII via OPMA slot.

The FW-8760 is built around the Intel 3450 chipset and can support the Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processors or LGS 1156 processors.

It uses the platform controller hub instead of a north and south bridge.

Utilising this ‘Nehalem’ core technology means this platform comes with an integrated memory controller meaning the four DDR3 RAM slots are directly connected to the processor.

The FW-8760 supports one 3.5in or 2 x 2.5in hard drives, connected via Serial ATA.

There is also a single Compact Flash (Type II) interface.

The unit cools itself with a single passive CPU heatsink, two regular cooling fans and one smart fan.

The smart fan has the ability to turn itself on when the machine reaches a certain temperature.

The FW-8760 can support Windows, Linux, OpenBSD and Free BSD operating systems.

As with other Lanner 1U network appliances, there is a front LCD module with the capacity for two rows of 20 characters, a watchdog and an internal real-time clock.
