NEXCOM’s NSA 7160 is intended for network security and 5G network applications, with cutting-edge features like multi-core computing performance, high memory capacity, high-speed I/O interface, and improved Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT) hardware acceleration for both enterprise and telecommunication applications. By leveraging 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, NSA 7160 accelerates performance across the fastest-growing workloads and delivers value across multiple applications.


To broaden customers’ capabilities in terms of big data processing, NSA 7160 is designed with the latest PCIe Gen5 interface that enables up to 2.6Tb Ethernet connectivity per system. One other highlight is Compute Express Links (CXL) 1.1, which accelerates CPU-to-device or CPU-to-memories connections, a much-desired feature for high-speed data processing of all kinds.


“NEXCOM is proud to be part of this significant event with Intel,” said Allan Chiu, VP of Network & Communication Solutions at NEXCOM. “We are launching our new flagship product that offers our customers the highest Ethernet connectivity per system ever available on the market. The productive cooperation and leveraging of 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, let NEXCOM stay among industry leaders and bring unprecedented performance to the network industry once again.”


“Our 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors bring cutting-edge technologies, under multi-workload-oriented architecture and cloud-native design concept, with built-in acceleration and advanced security, all the crucial elements required by today's newly evolved network infrastructure,” said Keate Despain, Intel® Network Builders Director, Intel® Corporation. “NEXCOM is an awarded Winners’ Circle Gold partner, and we are excited to see the integration of Intel's innovations into their solutions to deliver more choice to their customers for the 5G era."
