About this talk

With scores of major wireless carriers now rolling out LTE service across the globe, they need ways to offer high-bandwidth services to their subscribers efficiently and effectively while fiercely guarding the security of their advanced 4G networks. In this webinar, Artesyn will show how its MaxCore™ platform leverages the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) cryptography instruction set of the Intel Xeon-D and the advanced switching and high speed interfaces of the Intel Ethernet Multi-host Controller FM10000 (formerly Red Rock Canyon) to provide a highly efficient and cost effective security gateway solution. For example firewall performance of up to 600Gbps can be achieved by combining four 100GE smart IO cards based on FM10000 with 22 Intel Xeon-Ds populating the balance of MaxCore™’s 15 PCIe slots. The result is a system with 15x the density of a comparable rack mount server implementation. In addition, by using low power multicore processors, the system can cut energy consumption by up to 70%.
