Taiwanese system integrator AR Infotek has announced a Internet security appliance platform that supports low- and high-power Intel processors and Windows XP Embedded. The 1U rack-mountable Teak 5010 can be configured with four gigabit Ethernet and four 10/100 Ethernet interfaces.
The Teak 5010 targets network appliance applications requiring significant processing power, including SSL VPN, firewall, load balancing, and intrusion detection systems, according to the company. It can be specified with an Intel Pentium M or Celeron M CPU clocked up to 2GHz. The processor connects to Intel's 915GM northbridge and up to 1.5GB of DDR2 RAM via a front-side bus clocked at either 400MHz or 533MHz, while the southbridge is Intel's ICH6-M part.
