TAIPEI, Aug. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — NEXCOM introduces NA 1000-L2X, a series of acceleration cards featuring and embedded with two Intel® QAT engines, based on Intel’s Lewisburg platform family. Connected to NEXCOM network appliances‘ CPUs through the PCIe x8 interface, the acceleration cards reduce time and resources ordinarily required for data encryption.
NEXCOM’s NA 1000-L2X utilizes Intel® QAT, which includes symmetric encryption and authentication, asymmetric encryption, digital signatures, RSA, DH, and ECC, and lossless data compression capabilities. The QAT card offloads CPU usage at exceptional speeds, achieving a throughput of 40 GBps while running NSA 5181, NEXCOM’s mainstream cyber security appliance.
“We’ve seen an increasing demand for data encryption and decryption due to Internet cyber security concerns,” says Matthew Liu, Director of Product Management of Network & Communication Solutions Group. “The introduction of the NA-1000-L2X series boosts NEXCOM’s portfolio, offering customers an option to dedicate crypto functionality to this expansion card and thus offload heavy CPU loads without sacrificing Ethernet throughput performance.”
NEXCOM is dedicated to developing the most technically advanced network security appliances, especially for 5G networks. A white paper further detailing NA 1000-L2X’s performance, as well as its features and mechanisms, are now available on the NEXCOM website: https://www.nexcom.com/news/Detail/rocket-boost-your-data-encryption-with-intel-qat-card-na-1000-l2x
