NSA 5150 can be scaled to address a full range of applications. In pursuit of various different vertical market segments, network security vendors require scalable platforms which are suitable for both entry-level and high-end applications. In response to these demands, NEXCOM has unveiled the NSA 5150, a unique network security platform which features expandable port density and functionality, to fulfill a multitude of application requirements. NSA 5150 can be configured with eight to sixteen GbE ports, 10GbE fiber ports with LAN module, and one PCIe card to give network performance an extra boost. Computing performance can also be modified with a wide range of processors including Intel® recently launched Xeon® E3 family, 4th generation Intel® Core™, Pentium®, and Celeron® processors.
NSA 5150's scalability can help vendors optimize the combination of port density and computing performance based on application requirement and service capacity. It can be used in port hungry virtual private network, adapted for CPU-demanding Antispyware, or turned into a VoIP gateway with telephony card. It can be a cost-effective model for lower-end market segments and also be transformed into a premium platform chasing high-end market opportunities.
