Press release date: December 11, 2012

FREMONT, CALIF. —CAR-3020, the latest offering from American Portwell Technology, Inc. (, is a compact 1U rackmount network security appliance that provides support for a variety of network interface cards, built-in security functions—including bulk encryption/decryption—high flexibility and high performance. The engine that drives the new CAR-3020 is based on the Intel Crystal Forest-Gladden platform of the Intel BGA1284 type processors from CeleronŽ to XeonŽ (codenamed Sandy Bridge-Gladden) and Intel Communications Chipset 89xx series (codenamed Cave Creek).

Other features of American Portwell’s new CAR-3020 1U rackmount network security appliance include built-in Intel QuickAssist Technology (QAT) via the Cave Creek Chipset; and support for both ECC DDR3 and DDR3 memory up to 16GB; two Gen. 2.0 bypass segments; and x4 DMI. Flexibility options include support for one PCIe x8 or two PCIe x4 expansion slots; character/graphical display module; and up to 14 Ethernet ports. The CAR-3020’s network interface reserves one extension for Portwell NIP and includes 2, 4, 8 Ethernet ports for fiber or copper connections.

This combination of performance, flexibility and security makes American Portwell’s new CAR-3020 the ideal solution for WAN optimization, DNS firewall, VPN, IDS/IPS, anti-spam, anti-virus and UTM, plus network management applications such as routers, RAS gateways, QoS, server load-balancer, wireless LAN controllers, medical DICOM and PACS, and industrial automation control via Ethernet TCP/IP.

Entry Platform with Server-Grade Chipset  
According to Oliver Chen, American Portwell Technology’s product marketing manager, the inclusion of Intel QuickAssist Technology, and the combination of Sandy Bridge and Cave Creek technologies makes CAR-3020 the perfect 1U rackmount network security appliance for customers seeking a platform with a built-in security engine to offload CPU loading. “Using Cave Creek, Intel QuickAssist Technology provides up to 20Gps of Bulk Encrypt/Decrypt functionality,” Chen explains. “Pair this with the Xeon platform and customers benefit from server-grade performance at an entry-level price.”

Long Product Lifecycle Support  
“Portwell always designs and develops its products with one eye on the bottom line and the other eye on making things as future-proof as possible,” confirms Frank Shen, American Portwell’s vice president of product marketing. “And as always,” Shen continues, “our customers not only benefit from the most up-to-date technology and features, but they also gain peace of mind from the long life cycle support (7+ years) inherent with every Portwell product.”
