VIA Launches NAB 7500 Specialized Network Appliance Board for UTM, VPN, and Firewall Applications

VIA Technologies, an innovator and developer of embedded silicon and platform technologies, today announced the VIA NAB 7500 embedded board for advanced network security solutions.

Designed to address the needs of today's modern network security systems, the feature-packed VIA NAB 7500 is a highly integrated Network Appliance Board for network security or gateway applications, including Firewall, VPN, UTM, Anti-Virus and Intrusion Prevention System products. Other network applications include Proxy Server, Quality of Service and Load Balancer products.

To meet the demand for high performance, reliable and secure networks, the VIA NAB 7500 features five Gigabit Ethernet ports (4 of which through PCI Express) supporting LAN Bypass, a USB WLAN interface, four S-ATA ports for data logging or signature, serial ports for console redirection with an LCM power function, plus several other features for added reliability and security, including a TPM module for hardware-based data protection, all powered by a low heat, energy-efficient VIA C7 processor.

Powered by an energy-efficient 1.5GHz VIA C7 processor (with other speed options available for project customers) and the versatile VIA CN896 chipset, the VIA NAB 7500 supports up to 3.5GB of DDR2 system memory, 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports on a high bandwidth PCI-e bus with an additional Gigabit LAN port on the PCI bus. The VIA NAB 7500 also supports a LAN Bypass feature for added protection from system hang-up and power failure, with control available through the Watch Dog Timer, GPIO or custom developed software.

System expandability is provided through a Golden Finger expansion module for discreet system expansion in a multi-board configuration or the addition of up to 3 PCI Cards. Data storage is simple with 4 S-ATA ports supporting RAID 0 and RAID 1, as well as a 44-pin IDE/Compact Flash socket. With an optional TPM chip for superior software and content security, a COM port, 8 GPIO ports, pin headers for PS/2 and VGA ports, LAN and LAN Bypass front panel LEDs and up to 6 USB 2.0 ports, the VIA NAB7500 offers tremendous design flexibility.

Security can be augmented by enabling the VIA PadLock Security Engine, a hardware based security technology that provides the latest military-grade encryption and protection with the world's fastest x86 security engine. VIA StrongBox is an application that uses the power of the VIA PadLock Security Engine allowing users to create up to 10 encrypted virtual drives.

Full specifications.

Pre-release samples are available now to project-based customers.
