Original Press Release:



Axiomtek's Highly Flexible 3rd/2nd Generation Intel® Core Network Appliance Supports 26 LANs - NA-551



The outstanding 2U rack-mountable communication appliance NA-551 supports six-groups bypass function, ECC DDR3, power redundant, and BIOS redirection for extreme network performance

Taipei, Taiwan, - Axiomtek is pleased to introduce NA-551, a 2U rack-mountable network appliance platform with the ability to support up to 26 Gigabit Ethernet ports and up to 6-group LAN bypass segment. The outstanding NA-551 supports the 3rd Generation and 2nd Generation Intel® Core(TM) processors with Intel® C206 chipset. The network communication appliance comes with four unbuffered ECC or non-ECC DDR3 1333 MHz DIMM sockets with up to 16 GB memory and two front-accessible hot-swappable 3.5" SATA hard drive bays. Moreover, the NA-551 supports power redundant (1+0 or 1+1) for better fail over protection. For greater flexible and easy maintenance, the platform has three front-accessible expansion slots that allow developers to configure PCIe LAN modules based on their solution requirements. Additionally, considering to expansibility for users, one Mini PCI slot is available for third-party cards. Its friendly design gives users the advantage of being able to develop network security solutions according to their demands and reduce time to market.

"Axiomtek's brand-new NA-551 is built around the Intel® C206 chipset and supports the 3rd and 2nd Generation Intel® Core(TM) processors for today's network appliance markets looking for the ultimate performance. With a 2U-height rackmount form factor design, the NA-551 network appliance platform supports maximum up to 26 Gigabit network ports through various copper and/or SFP-type fiber interface modules. To enhanced reliability, The platform supports data protection via bypass segment for fail-over option. It also supports BIOS redirection to improve IT efficiency. The NA-551 is a flexible multi-Gigabit network security appliance designed for VPN, firewall, UTM, and network management applications," said Philip Wei, Product Manager of Product & Marketing Division at Axiomtek.

The NA-551 offers high flexibility for varied applications and markets. It has three front-accessible slots for PCIe Gigabit modules. The selection of extending PCIe Gigabit modules with multiple copper and fiber ports includes:

o 4-port copper module with/without LAN bypass function (AX93306-4GIL/AX93306-4GI)

o 8-port copper module with/without LAN bypass function (AX93306-8GIL/AX93306-8GI)

o 4-port copper plus 4-port fiber module with/without LAN bypass function (AX93306-8MIL/AX93306-8MI)

o 4-port fiber module (AX93306-4FI), and 8-port fiber module (AX93312-8FI)

In addition to the two default Gigabit LAN ports, the standard NA-551 model comes with 4-port copper module with LAN bypass function (AX93306-4GIL) and 8-port copper module with LAN bypass function (AX93306-8GIL), supporting total fourteen Gigabit LANs and four groups of LAN bypass segments.

Axiomtek NA-551 features two hot-swappable 3.5" SATA hard drive bays and an advanced CFast(TM) slot for storing event log. For easy access, the front panel also includes one RJ-type console port, two high-speed USB 2.0 ports, and thoughtful LED indicators. On the rear side, the unit has one VGA port, PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports, and 300W redundant power input. Moreover, this powerful platform supports mainstream Linux kernel 2.6 operating systems.

The high-performance NA-551 will be available around the end of May, 2012. For more product information or pricing, please visit our global website www.axiomtek.com or contact our sales representative at info@axiomtek.com.tw.
