SolidRun, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance System on Module (SOM) solutions, Single Board Computers (SBC) and network edge solutions, today announced its all-new line of SolidWAN system-level solutions for software-defined wide area networks and network security applications. Available in different form factors, with different wired and wireless networking configuration options, SolidWAN networking solutions are ideal for home office use, SMB and enterprise applications and deployment at the network's edge.
"Businesses across the world are evolving their network infrastructure to take advantage of the vast flexibility, security, and cost-saving benefits of software-defined networking, However, one size doesn't fit all when it comes to network hardware. This is especially true when connecting today's distributed workforce. With that in mind, we created our game changing SolidWAN line, which makes software-defined networking more affordable and easily deployable to home offices, branch offices, data centers and more."
Mordi Blaunstein, VP Marketing and Sales at SolidRun
SolidWAN network hardware solutions are optimized for software-defined networking applications and provide direct connectivity of network ports to the CPU. This direct connection allows all network traffic to be managed by software, which not only guarantees the highest security and best possible quality of service, but also makes upgrading network hardware, deploying updates and establishing new network services fast and easy. The embedded Layerscape LX2 SoCs from NXP® Semiconductors offer advanced data path acceleration optimized for L2/3 packet processing, security offload and robust traffic management and quality of service.
"The future of network management is software based, and NXP has created the powerful Layerscape LX2160A and LX2162A processors with this in mind," said Toby Foster, senior product marketing manager at NXP. "SolidRun's SolidWAN networking solutions take full advantage of our LX2 line of processor's 16 powerful cores, numerous SerDes lanes, security acceleration, and data compression engine to produce cost-effective and compact hardware that can be configured to serve any number of enterprise and edge processing network functions, while helping to reduce latency, enhancing security, and improving resiliency."
For Home Offices and SMBs
The SolidWAN LX2162A is a small form factor network solution that takes full advantage of the robust performance and security features embedded into the LX2162A SoC from NXP. Utilizing SolidRun's LX2-Lite system-on-module as the foundation for this compact system, the SolidWAN LX2162A efficiently addresses SMB and local branch office needs with outstanding performance and security. Engineered with a wide array of wired and wireless software-defined networking connection options, including eight dedicated GbE RJ45 ports, two 25GbE SFP and two 10GbE dedicated SFP interfaces, and optional GbE RJ45 management port, LTE and Wi-Fi options, this unit offers maximum site installation flexibility while maintaining a compact, desktop-friendly footprint and low price point.
SolidRun also offers fanless small form factor SD-WAN platforms with quad-core processors and 1GbE/2.5GbE/10GbE software-defined dedicated Ethernet ports to address the home-office, remote-workers, and Industrial locations the need high security and high-performance network services.
