Intel Coffee Lake (Refresh) 1U Appliance, support up to 18 GbE Ports

  • Intel Coffee Lake / Coffee Lake Refresh Processor
  • 1 x front-access CASwell NIC Module
  • 2 x DDR4 2666MHz UDIMMs up to 64GB
  • 2 x USB 3.0, 1x RJ45 Console
  • 2 x Segment Bypass 3.0
  • 6 x GbE RJ45 Ports (6x Intel i210-AT, co-layout with i211-AT)

The highly configurable CASwell CAR-2080 offers up to 18 Gigabit Ethernet ports for network security and unified threat management (UTM). This compact 1U rackmount device is available with both regular RJ-45 GbE ports and high-speed SFP connections through an optional PCI Express daughter board and CASwell’s proprietary network module.

Besides traditional network security applications such as firewall, VPN, IDS/IPS, anti-spam, anti-virus, UTM and WAN, the CASwell CAR-2080 is also targeting software defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) applications as well as network management applications such as Virtualized Data Center, ADC, QoS, server load balancer, wireless controller, and industrial automation control via Ethernet TCP/IP.

The CASwell CAR-2080 uses the well established Intel Core 8th and 9th generation processsors but also supports Pentium and Celeron models of this generation (Coffee Lake and Coffee Lake Refresh). The CPU can be paired with up to 64 Gigabyte ECC DDR4-2666 main memory on two DIMM slots, Customers can choose between two different CAR-2080 SKUs with either Intel H310 or Intel C246 chipset. Both models include six Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 ports onboard and up to eight more network ports with the optional CASwell NIP module or a standard PCIe NIC but the C246 SKU addionally supports four extra SFP or GbE RJ-45 ports with an optional integrated daugher board. Both the CASwell NIP and the daughter board are connected to the main system by high-speed PCI Express 3.0.

Like it’s predecessor, the widely adopted CAR-2070, the CASwell CAR-2080 offers front I/O flexibility and multi-function design. Besides the many different networking configurations, customers are able to select various combinations of 2.5″ HDDs or SSDs over SATA 3.0 and M.2 connections, copper and fiber media, GbE/10GbE/40GbE/100GbE and one LC display module with function buttons.
