As reported on Windows for Devices, Axiomtek released a 1U network appliance that uses Intel Atom D410 or D510 processors and provides six gigabit Ethernet ports. SMBs who require
adequate performance in multitasking environments will benefit from the hyperthreading capabilities inherent in the NA-320’s single-core Atom D410 or dual-core Atom D510. The NA-320 has a
PCI Express Mini Card expansion slot, both hard disk and CompactFlash storage, and accepts up to 2GB of RAM.
“According to Axiomtek, the NA-320 is suitable for VPN, firewall, unified threat management, bandwidth control and network management applications. The device has six gigabit Ethernet
ports, using Intel 82583V controllers or, optionally, Intel 82574 controllers, the company says. LAN bypass capabilities are also cited, though without word on how many of the ports this applies
Equipped with Intel’s ICH8M I/O controller, the NA-320 is expandable to 2GB of DDR2 memory. Mass storage, meanwhile, is provided by both a 2.5-bay for an SATA hard disk drive and by a
CompactFlash Type II slot, says Axiomtek.”
