SDN Appliances

Software Definable Network Appliances™ (SDN-A™) are portable, robust, software programmable communications solutions for secure voice, video and data feeds over a variety commercial network technologies including Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Cellular, MANET, SATCOM and more.

SDNA-HRW

Software Definable Network Appliance (SDNA) Half Rack Width (HRW)

The SDNA-HRW is our highest performing SDN-A, featuring Intel® processors with Intel QuickAssist® Technology (QAT). Intel QAT significantly increases cryptographic performance by adding dedicated cryptographic acceleration hardware on the Intel Xeon CPU, supporting 20 Gbps and 50 Gbps AES encryption performance levels. By using the dedicated cryptographic acceleration logic, the balance of the Intel Xeon processor can be leveraged for software based Virtualized Networking Functions (VNF) or application servers.

The SDNA-HRW combines the capabilities of an “all WAN technology consuming” IP networking router, a 12-port switch, and an enterprise-class virtual machine (VM) server into a single HRW appliance. It offers a multitude of commercial networking technologies that include Ethernet (copper and fiber), 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6, 3G/4G/5G upgradable Cellular, and additional Ethernet based commercial WAN technologies support. Because the SDNA-HRW is software programmable, it yields a flexible, scalable, interoperable solution that is future proof. It has enough processing power to support today’s software-based IP networking technologies and performance levels to support impending 5G use cases and beyond.

SDN-A Technology

The SDNA-HRW leverages our Software Definable Network-Appliance technology, which allows you to create a networking appliance based on your preferred vendor’s software-based VNFs. SDN-As support several different VM hypervisors, along with networking function VMs from companies such as Cisco, Aruba, Juniper, Palo Alto, Fortinet, and IAS ROS. When used with IAS ROS hypervisor, users can benefit from the SDN-A’s cellular and Wi-Fi transport technologies.
