All-New Network Appliance powered by
Dual Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors

NCA-6520 is a 2U 19” rackmount network security appliance featuring dual 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor, higher throughputs, built-in crypto acceleration and exceptional NIC module expansion.


Enhanced Performance with Higher Throughputs

Powered by the dual 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors (Codenamed ICE Lake) with max. 80 cores, PCIe-Gen4 support and 1.2x memory capacity, NCA-6520 will deliver enhanced performance for network security workloads through increased processor cores, higher memory bandwidth and faster input/output, offering up to 1.94x more secure networking connections and achieve significantly faster speeds to support cloud, edge and work-from-home use cases.


Swappable & Scalable
F.A.S.T Modules

The NCA-6520 is equipped with 8 NIC module slots, capable of delivering almost any networking interface and I/O configuration. The purpose-built modular kits developed to optimize for a broad selection of expansion requirement, including 1/10/25/40/100G copper/fiber interface, NVMe SSD storage, 4K video transcoding and WiFi/LTE connectivity. The lower layer of NCA-6520 NIC modules slots also support hot-swappable PCIe functionality.

Highly Availability and
Scalability Design

To ensure the 24/7 non-stop network operation, NCA-6520 supports high availability design, including hot-swappable cooling fans and redundant power supplies, to ensure a constant flow of cooling and power. NCA-6520 also supports dual PCIe*16 sockets for a variety of acceleration cards, including GPU, crypto and RAID. These hardware-based acceleration cards offload the repetitive but high volume workloads from CPU and improve total application performance.


Built-in Hardware Security

The integrated 100Gbps Intel QuickAssist technology (Intel QAT) is a hardware technology that accelerates critical workloads such as data compression and cryptography. In addition, Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel SGX) offer hardware-based memory encryption for isolating specific application code and data in memory. NCA-6520 can support Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (TPM 2.0) that provides the integrated cryptographic keys and secure boot to protect the hardware from unauthorized accesses.
