Figure: The NE XCOM networksecurity appliance targets enterprise environments.

With advanced network connectivity and expansion capability, the NEXCOM International NSA 1088N8 is an ideal platform for building network-security applications. Examples of such applications include IDS/IPS, anti-virus/ anti-spyware/anti-spam, and load balancing. Clearly, this platform is intended for enterprise-class environments.

The NSA1088N8 is a 1U, 19-in. rack-mount form-factor platform. It is based on the Intel 3210 memory Controller Hub (MCH) and Intel® 828091IR I/O Controller Hub (Intel® ICH9R). The platform supports up to 4 GBytes of DDRII system memory with two memory sockets. It can support two independent Gigabit Ethernet local-area-networking (LAN) modules. Each LAN module has four LAN ports with a copper or fiber interface. It also boasts a bypass feature. In addition, every module supports a number of different types of CPU configurations including the Intel® Core™2 Quad processor Q9400, Intel® Core™2 Duo processors E8400, E7400, and E6400, and Intel® Celeron® processor 440. Based on different CPU performance, the NSA 1088N8 can easily be configured for various applications.
