Acrosser has announced a new 2U rackmount edge network appliance named ANR-C621A1. This appliance is powered by dual Intel 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable Processors (Intel code name “Ice Lake-SP”). The processors from Intel are optimized for cloud, enterprise, HPC, network, security, and IoT workloads, with up to 40 powerful cores and a wide range of frequency, feature, and power levels. The ANR-C621A1 is infused with Intel Crypto Acceleration, which enhances data protection and privacy by increasing the performance of encryption-intensive workloads including SSL web serving, 5G infrastructure, and VPN/firewalls while reducing the performance impact of pervasive encryption. The ANR-C621A1 is also fueled by Intel SGX, which protects data and application code while in use from the edge to the data center and multi-tenant public cloud, making it an ideal product for UTM, SD-WAN, 5G MEC, and IT/OT Cybersecurity.


The ANR-C621A1 provides up to 16 DDR4 RDIMM channels and has a maximum memory capacity of 512 GB with error-correcting code (ECC), which protects against undetected data corruption, reduces crashes, and boosts system performance for cybersecurity applications. To make expansion network slots easy, the ANR-C621A1 provides 8 high-speed networking interfaces module(NIM), including 8 copper 1GbE LAN ports, 8 SFP+ Fiber 10 GbE LAN ports, and up to 66 LAN ports. It also provides 1 PCIe[x16] expansion slot for an add-in riser card, accelerating the deployment of networking security, UTM, and uCPE scenarios.


"The uCPE enables the use of a single platform for various functions, including routing, VPN, firewall, IPS/IDS, SD-WAN, UTM and IT/OT cybersecurity. Acrosser's ANR-C621A1 is an ideal NFV-ready uCPE solution that offers faster and easier service provisioning, centralized control, and improved flexibility with software-defined security," said Alan Chou, Head of Product Planning Division.


The ANR-C621A1 provides 1 x RJ-45 console, 1 x IPMI slot, and 1 x LCM with keypad, enabling operators to easily access the appliance for system configuration. It also provides 2 x 2.5” SATA type SSD/HDD for data backup, full range 1200W 1+1 redundant power supply design, and is equipped with Trusted Platform Module 2.0 for hardware-based data encryption to enhance data protection. The ANR-C621A1 delivers a perfect mixture of performance, flexibility, and security for cloud-scale computing, AI, 5G networks, HPC workloads, and multi-access edge computing (MEC) applications.
