2023/10/31 – CASwell, a leading manufacturer of innovative and high-performance SD-WAN (uCPE/vCPE) and network security systems, releases the CAR-4070 for networking and cybersecurity solutions. This 1U rackmount appliance uses Intel’s latest generations of hybrid processors with up to 24 energy-efficient and performance cores and can be equipped with a maximum of 32 Ethernet ports through CASwell’s proprietary network modules. The combination of Intel’s power-efficient and powerful CPU with CASwell’s sophisticated and flexible network modules is a cost-effective and potent system. Used either as network manager or protector, the CAR-4070 can transform your business and lift both production and security to the next level.
The CAR-4070 is at its best when used for Unified Threat Management (UTM), but also excels in applications like Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) to cater organizations that wish to customize their security policies and prefer their own reporting and management. The NGFW can be enhanced by an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) to monitor company networks for possible dangerous activity and application intelligence for even more sophisticated security algorithms.
CASwell’s CAR-4070 uses one of Intel’s Alder Lake-S or Raptor Lake-S processors with its latest hybrid architecture of energy-efficient and performance cores that are used according to workload to save resources while providing outstanding performance. Intel’s 13th generation of Core processors (Raptor Lake) are the best choice for the CAR-4070 because they come with more integrated cache, can achieve higher frequencies and feature a new prefetch algorithm for an even better usage of the bigger cache and more performance. While Alder Lake CPUs already support high-speed memory like DDR5-4800, the newer generation can take advantage of even faster memory like DDR5-5600.
Four of CASwell’s NIN network modules can provide up to 32 Ethernet ports with up to 100-GbE data transfer. For internal storage, the CAR-4070 offers one M.2 slot and two SATA 3.0 connectors for hard drives and solid-state drives. Two redundant power supply units with 450 watts secure uninterrupted operation even if one should fail.
Summary and availability
The CASwell CAR-4070 offers high-end networking and performance while benefitting from Intel’s latest energy-efficient hybrid CPU architecture. This system in a low-profile form factor is one of the best platforms for cybersecurity and networking solutions, especially at the network edge but also in data centers.
The CAR-4070 can be configured according to customer demand or requirement, and samples for customer evaluation are available now.
