San Jose, CA – July 11, 2017 – ADLINK Technology, a global provider of leading edge computing solutions that drive data-to-decision applications across industries, today introduced the CSA-7400 high-performance, high-throughput, and high-density 4U carrier-grade network appliance for highly available, mission-critical network security applications, including deep packet inspection (DPI), intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS), distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS), and Next Generation Firewall (NGFW). The CSA-7400 is intended for use in banking, enterprise, government and e-commerce markets.

The ADLINK CSA-7400 consists of four dual Intel® Xeon® processor E5 compute nodes supporting independent systems, interconnected by dual-redundant switch modules. The CSA-7400’s hot-swappable compute and switch modules ensure uninterrupted service delivery and offer total 1.2TTb/s bandwidth. This network appliance is ideally suited for building next-generation, high-performance firewalls and virtualized telecom elements to meet high availability requirements (99.9999%).

Cybersecurity Ventures, a leading researcher and publisher covering the global cyber economy, recently provided its top 15 statistics for 2017, including an estimate on potential cybercrime global damages of US$6 trillion annually by 2021. Being able to withstand unexpected attacks and network overflow will be critical to private businesses and government institutions alike.

“With over ten years in telecom and networking OEM/ODM experience, ADLINK has accumulated extensive industrial know-how from our valued tier-one customers and continues to develop carrier-grade platforms which differentiate themselves from other products currently on the market,” said Yong Lo, general manager of ADLINK’s Networking, Communication and Public Business Unit. “The CSA-7400 is based on ADLINK’s Open Compute Edge Reference Architecture, or OCCERA, which includes the OCP-ACCEPTED™ OpenSled specification and offers high-level performance, throughput, density and availability. We are happy to be co-working with industry leaders to spec-in high-end applications built with OCCERA.”

“ADLINK’s OCCERA platform efficiently integrates network I/O, switching and computing power and the open architecture gives network security solution providers a powerful hardware platform to work with,” said Dr Yang Chuan-An, chief architect of NSFOCUS, a leading provider of enterprise-level network security solutions and services. “OCCERA platforms feature expansion capabilities that allow NSFOCUS to build scalable high-end carrier-grade network security solutions. With the CSA-7400’s rich I/O options, NSFOCUS is able to build solutions that support cross-industry deployment, reducing the overall hardware costs. In addition to hardware, ADLINK also includes middleware such as PacketManager with API libraries that speed up system validation, allowing security vendors to focus on their core competence and shorten time-to-market. We believe continued cooperation with ADLINK will help us to provide even more advanced and creative solutions in the future.”

Features of the CSA-7400 include: 

  • 4U high-density platform with four dual Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 v3/v4 systems
  • Dual switch modules provide 2x 50G internal Ethernet links to each compute node
  • Support for hardware based acceleration for processing NVGRE and VXLAN, assisting the construction of large layer 2 networks in the cloud
  • Support for the IPMI 2.0 specification, web-based intelligent system management, and SOL on compute nodes
  • Dual redundant power supply units providing active power management on compute nodes and flexible power limit polices
  • Support for PacketManager software to provide data plane software stacks for dynamic layer 3 and flow-based forwarding, accelerating development of customer applications
  • Support for hardware acceleration for Open vSwitch and OpenFlow protocol processing, accelerating SDN services
