Comparing Network Appliance Throughput Across 2nd Generations of Intel Core Platforms - Live Event: August 8, 2012 (2:00 p.m. EDT/11:00 a.m. PT)

Lanner Electronics, Inc. participates in OpenSystems Media's E-cast

FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz., August 2, 2012 — OpenSystems Media (OSM), LLC today announced its upcoming E-cast on Comparing Network Appliance Throughput Across 2nd Generations of Intel Core Platforms moderated by Curt Schwaderer, Technology Editor, OpenSystems Media.

Ever-increasing network traffic keeps system designers of application servers, network appliances, and other packet-processing devices constantly looking for new platforms that can cost effectively increase throughput. For this market, the 2011 introduction of 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors (based on Intel® microarchitecture formerly codenamed “Sandy Bridge”) offers real performance gains over previous generation architecture.

To find out how substantial these gains are, Lanner Electronics, an Associate member of the Intel® Embedded Alliance, conducted research on two generations of processors. Lanner engineers tested the throughput of one platform powered by an Intel® Core™ i5-660 processor at 3.33 GHz (based on the previous generation Intel® microarchitecture formerly codenamed “Nehalem”) and one platform powered by the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i5-2400 processor at 3.1 GHz. Lab results show a uniform 20 percent increase in network throughput on the 2nd generation Intel Core processor-based system.

This webinar will include a discussion on comparing the platforms while using the Intel® 82599 10 GbE controller, the 2nd generation Intel Core processor-based system performs significantly better across all frame sizes on both short- and long-term tests.

Lanner Electronics, Inc. will be available for a Q&A session immediately following the E-cast.
