April 5, 2011 - PRLog -- (Taipei, Taiwan – April 5, 2011)Today Lanner Electronics Inc., released our highest port density 1U network appliance with Intel’s newest server grade work station platform. The FW-8865 uses the Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 family and Intel® C206 chipset. It supports up to 21 LAN ports and features many enterprise level solutions for a mainstream platforms.

“This network appliance (the FW-8865) is our most extreme 1U system,” said Jesse Chiang, Lanner’s Network Security Product Planner. “Using the newest server-grade Intel® architecture and the most recent update in the Intel® Xeon® Processor family this network appliance has the capacity to hold two Lanner 8800 Series Modules, giving a maximum total of 21 LAN ports.”

“Our newest server-grade platform utilizes the high-performing, highly integrated Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 family in conjunction with the Intel® C206 Chipset,” said Matt Langman, director of product marketing, Intel Embedded Computing Division. “As a workstation and server platform, this chip combination delivers significant improvements in energy efficiency, performance and manageability over the previous generation of Intel Xeon processors.”

The FW-8865 networking ability is unprecedented- the 4 onboard LAN ports can feature Generation 3 bypass. Gen 3 bypass is a Lanner design our engineers created to give end users absolute control over bypass functionality by allowing them control over the bypass ports even when the platform is in a powering on/off stage. The four LAN ports (2 pair bypass) that offer this technology can utilize either the Intel® 82574L Gigabit Ethernet Controller or the Intel® 82576EB Gigabit Ethernet Controller. A final LAN port is a RJ-45 FE Management Port that can be used for IPMI or OPMA, allowing remote management access to the platform.

Additional to the onboard LAN ports, the FW-8865 also has 2 trays for Lanner 8800 Series modules. Lanner Modules can feature 2 to 8 copper or fiber LAN ports. They can feature speeds up to 10GbE per port. These modules allow end users to grow their appliance to meet their demand.

Internally, the FW-8865 can hold both of the most recent Intel Xeon processors - the Intel Xeon processor E3-1275 (3.4GHz) and the Intel Xeon processor E3-1225 (3.1GHz). These processors are connected directly to 4 x 240 pin DIMM slots, each of which can carry a maximum of 4GBs of dual-channel DDR3 RAM. It also has one PCIe (x)4 slot for expansion purposes.

The FW-8865 is compatible with both Linux and Windows operating systems. There is a RJ-45 Console port, 2 x USB 2.0 ports and a 2 x 20 LCM. The FW-8865 features an internal RTC and a watchdog to ensure constant operation.

The platform has been extensively tested for temperatures between 0 and 40o Celsius. It can be ordered with dual power supplies for redundancy purposes.
