We just launched an all-new line of SolidWAN system-level solutions for software-defined wide area
networks and network security applications. SolidWAN Linux-based system-level solutions are a cost-
effective path forward to futureproofing business networks without compromising performance,
security and user experience.
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, SolidWAN products make software-defined networking more affordable
and easily deployable to home offices, branch offices, data centers and more.
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 offers advanced data path acceleration optimized for L2/3 packet processing, security offload and robust traffic management and quality of service.
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 feature 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 GbERJ45 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.
For Enterprise and Edge
For the most advanced enterprise and edge data center applications, the SolidWAN Dual LX2160A
network solution boasts 32-core processing performance for advanced network security and accelerated
data routing capabilities. With two SolidRun LX2160A COM Express 7 modules serving as the system’s
foundation, each packing a 16-core NXP LX2160A SoC, up to 32GB of DDR4, up to 64GB of embedded
eMMC, this SD-Wan- and software-defined network security-targeted system supports up to 24
dedicated high-speed Ethernet connections (12 10GbE SFP+ and 12 1GbE SFP interfaces). This system is also equipped with a 2x100GbE OCP3.0 Dual Host NIC which features two dedicated 100GbE QSFP28 interfaces. What’s more surprising than the number of dedicated high-speed connections this system supports is its size.
Thanks to the purpose-built, network-focused design of the SoCs used and the
thermal efficiency of Arm processors, SolidRun was able to engineer this system to fit within a standard
1U rack-mountable enclosure.
For less intense applications, SolidRun offers a SolidWAN Single LX2160A network solution that features
a single NXP LX2160A SoC and supports up to 16 high-speed Ethernet connections (8 10GbE SFP+ and 81GbE SFP interfaces). This system is equipped with 4x10GbE OCP3.0 NIC which features four dedicated SFP+ interfaces. Like the SolidWAN Dual LX2160A, this system also features a compact 1U rack-mountable enclosure.
As with many SolidRun network hardware solutions, the SolidWAN family of products offers SKUs that
support a wide range of deployment environments and can be pre-configured for commercial
applications where environmental conditions range between 0°C to 70°C, or for more extreme industrial applications where conditions range between -40°C to 75°C.
SolidWAN products are compatible with Linux-based SDN software applications, including DPDK, which provides data plane libraries and network interface controller polling-mode drivers for offloading TCP packet processing from the operating system kernel to processes running in user space. SolidRun has also partnered with several software developers to offer full SD-WAN and security service software to customers.
