Portwell Expands Its Family of ANS Compact Desktop Network Security Appliances for SD-WAN Applications
New ANS-9142 and ANS-9141 Integrates Intel QAT and DPDK, Design Ready for 5G and Wi-Fi 6
TAIPEI, TAIWAN — February 4, 2021—The new ANS-9141/ANS-9142 network security appliance from Portwell, Inc. , utilizes Intel® Atom® C3338R 2C processor (the cost-effective ANS-9141) and C3436L 4C processor (the higher performance ANS-9142) (Formerly Denverton Refresh). Portwell’s ANS Denverton series is a compact desk- and/or wall-mount system designed with up to four CPU cores, up to 8x GbE ports and Intel QAT and DPDK support. Both appliances are designed and built with SD-WAN (SDN) applications in mind for deployment in 5G and IoT devices.
According to Neil Su, Portwell’s product manager, the new ANS-9141/ANS-9142 features 8x GbE LAN ports, 1x RJ-45 Console; onboard TPM 2.0; 1x M.2 Key B slot (PCIe and USB 3.0 signals), 1x M.2 Key E slot (PCIe and USB 2.0 signal) for Wi-Fi 6 and 2x SIM slots are ready for, 4G/LTE and 5G; 1x M.2 Key M (SATA III) or 1x SATADOM, and optional 16GB eMMC 5.0; and 2x USB 3.0 ports.
Portwell’s new ANS-9141/ANS-9142 series of compact desktop network security appliances uCPE solutions have been optimized to run SD-WAN, next generation firewall, broadband bonding, network routers, VoIP, and much more.
Boost Network Performance and Security to Next Level with Intel QAT and DPDK
Intel QuickAssist Technology (QAT) with Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) designed to enhance SD-WAN appliance efficiency, with higher packet throughput and fewer cables in installation. With integrated Intel QAT and DPDK, the network performance, security and efficiency are optimized in ANS-9141/ANS-9142 to be a more powerful and reliable solution.
With this new generation, ANS-9 Series, LED light is adopted in ANS-9141/ANS-9142 to better indicate the intensity of Wi-Fi signals. This can benefit users to monitor the status of each ANS system in a more efficient and logical manner. In addition, its compact design can be utilized as a desktop solution or put two ANS systems in one 1U rackmount for applications like data center.
Meets the Increasing Speed Demands of Today’s WANs
“We designed and built the ANS Denverton series to help the small and medium business market segment meet the increasing speed demands of today’s WANs,“ says Neil Su, “so we included built-in support for as many as 8 GbE RJ-45 ports. At a mere 203 (W) x 150 (D) x 42 (H) mm, the appliances can be easily wall- or desk-mounted for quick and easy field maintenance. And as always,“ Su 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 lifespan support (7+ years) inherent with every Portwell product.“
ANS-9142 series builds on Intel® Denverton C3436L / C3338R processor with up to four CPU cores. ANS Denverton series is a compact system with up to 8x GbE ports and it is suitable for SDN (SD-WAN) application with 5G and WiFi 6 deployment.
